  • Connect your computer to the Internet and then connect your TomTom ONE to your computer using the USB cable.

  • If the pop-up window does not appear, browse to the TomTom device on your computer and run the file named Install TomTom HOME.
  • TomTom HOME is also available for download from the TomTom website.
  • For more information visit
  • Once installed, TomTom HOME will start automatically whenever you connectyour TomTom to your computer.

On some devices you have a guarantee for the latest maps (since its first use). On some other devices with model names ending in T, M, or TM you have free traffic (T) for life, Maps (M) , or free Traffic and maps (MT) for the useful life of the device. Outside of theses cases there are no free map downloads.
Visit the TomTom site to use and free map update that your device qualifies for.

If reset not worked, then must open up, take out battery and then reset, then you must hook up USB and upgrade software, also maybe need to get new battery too, often battery seems OK, but not,.

You may be able to go the TomTom website and download the last update programming. If the problem is software this should fix it.

That seems to be a problem with the Tomtom One, usually when the battery is low

Yes, sometimes it takes a long time to find a satellite, works best when it is fully charged, then it finds the Sats quickly

try a soft reset
press and hold the reset switch DOWN for 30 seconds, release and power up.
Go outside and wait about 4 minutes, that usually does the trick on a ONEv3

back up the contents of tomtom to a folder on your desktop then reformat the unit to FAT32 4096 and copy all the data back over

You may not likely find/get the activation code(s) for your map(s) since your map versions are quite old ... current map versions are 920... Your other option is to purchase a current map from TomTom.
You can go to (and if you haven't registered your GPS device, register the GPS device (on against your name, etc.,) and purchaseicon1.png a map (of your choice). With this purchase, you will download the map (software and data), and an activation code to validate the map. After that you should be able to use the GPS device (for the purchased maps).
