STEP 1

Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

STEP 2

Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

STEP 3

Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

STEP 4

Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

For some reason my cooker keeps switching itself off, unless the timer is set to 12:01 it does this. It used to go off when the timer counted down to 8 mins, but this varies, and now it has a mind of its...


It sounds like you are setting a cooking time instead of setting the time of day. The oven wont work until a time of day is set. press the centre button (4x)until a red light flashes in the bottom right corner of the clock if you miss it keep pressing until you cycle through to the rh corner(note clock symbal) press + or - until you get to the right time leave for 12 secs then time locks in and your oven will work. the other flashing lites top left= cooking time bottom left =end time top right =timer function with no oven control. If this does not solve it the timer is faulty and requires replacing. good luck.

I think I deleted the actual program on my tom tom ONE 130! It will only give me an orange screen with a red X and a flashing disk in the bottom left hand corner now. What can I do to fix this?! ?!


If you wisely made a backup of your device using 'Tom Tom Home', use the 'RESTORE' option!

Otherwise try 'Tom Tom Home' while connected to the Internet and select 'Update' my One: it should re-load and update all missing components (including the MAP) that your machine is allowed to have.

My tom tom go910 will not activate? It will only show a piture of


The red cross means its been wiped usually. Connect it to your pc and go to my computer. Click on the tom tom logo and see what is on your device. The maps should be there in yellow folders. Copy and paste these in to a folder. Then reformat the device by right clicking on the logo and selecting fat 32. When done reset the device for 30 sec and connect back to your pc and install the latest version of tom tom home. You can then get all the fee updates, thhen go to add maps where you can put your maps back on from the folder you made

Just followed the lead above and got it sorted straight away. Many thanks. Just one thing though. When it says look for the little arrow in the bottom right hand corner.It means the blue arrow that is the bottom right of the six symbles displayed. I was looking for an arrow in the very corner of the screen. Duh!! lol.

"My tom tom wonts switch on. I have reset it and still it comes on with a boom boom noise and shows the 2 hands on the screen. It also shows the loading bar at the bottom, but then it just freezes and nothing happens. can anyone help please ASAP"

Sound as though your Map data card is corrupt. Remove the SD card and check it with your computer using a card reader. Backup the SD card onto your computer. You can run either chkdsk or go to the drive letter under 'My Computer' right click and select properties, then tools, then check now. You can also try starting the Tomtom with the SD card out of the unit. It should show a picture of the Tomtom with a 'X'. You can also try copying the data on the SD card to another SD card.
