Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I am running Home2 with Vista and I can't connect to upgrade or do anything. I get the following message:
home.tomtom.com:443 uses an invalid security certificate.
The certfificate will not be valid until 8/8/2007 at 8:52am
This is the first time I have connected the device to my computer. I have created a TomTom account and have downloaded the most recent version 2.6 from tomtom.com
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
SOURCE: downloading tomtom HOME 2
64 bit vista is supported.
please let me know the exact error message you are getting.
There are a number of things that could be the issue.

once you have taken the 4 screws apart, the back cover is attached to the front one with plastic latchs. To open them, the best is to use one nail or a thin piece of plastic. Do not use an screwdriver or any other metallic tool or the covers will be marked. Begin with one of the sides, then the other, then the top (or the botton, I don't remember). You should not apply a strong force, and be very careful when it is almost done, as the cables connecting the battery and speaker are very short and could e damaged if the case opens suddenly.
Be gente and you'll be done.
Hope this helps.

I had a similar problem when trying to update my dad’s old
TomTom Go300. I bought a new map and downloaded TomTom Home 2 (as
instructed on the website) but found that the Go300 was recognised by the computer it wasn't recognised by TomTom's own Home 2 software.
To cut a long story short I uninstalled Home 2 and downloaded Home 1 (from http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17 Home 1 is the one on the right, listed as being the version of Home you use for Navigator 6).
Then when I switched the Go300 on it was recognised by Home1 - although the new map I had bought wasn't listed as being available for download.
However, I updated the Go300 with the available listed free updates, then switched it off.
Downloaded Home 2 again and switched the Go300 on - this time it was recognised by the computer and the new map I had bought was available to download.
So far so good - the only problem was the the postcode search facility was not the same as it had been - I could now only search the first 4 digits of the postcode. There is a fix for this on the tomtom website:
which I followed and which worked.
Hope this may be of some use to someone! It took me hours to figure it all out. But it's up and running now.
I read and read and re-read the TomTom website looking for any info that would help but came up with nothing. A few hours later and the air thick with torrents of language I didn’t think I was capable of I discovered that I needed to download Home1 first and let the Go300 connect to the computer via Home1 before it would be recognisable by Home2. Okay…
On the website, though, Home1 is listed as being the version you use if you have TomTom Navigator 6. It’s not even called ‘Home 1′. Confusing eh? Anyway, I downloaded that and from there found that I could get my new map onto my Go300. Once the map and other updates were installed and I had switched the thing off I then found that Home2 recognised it at last.
That had to be one of the most ridiculously long-winded things I’ve had to do on a computer, mainly because TomTom’s confusing advice on their website made the whole process so damn difficult. Perhaps they hoped I’d give up and buy a new one? Tsk.

I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.
