Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver
Someone wants to sell me one, and I want to make sure it can be updated
Posted by Anonymous on
Not unless it has "free updates for life" but that only lasts until the software is updated normally. You can update the maps but it will cost depending on area.

There are free downloads / updates of tomtom firmware from the tomtom home site but as far as I know there are no free updates for maps. The firmware updates can be performed using tomtom home software that came with your tomtom or by going to http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17
You will need to connect your tomtom to your PC via USB and have the SD card in as the update will perform updating of certain files on the card.
The update will allow better function and enable faster fixes on satellite's and also iron out any reported bugs that have become known to tomtom so its well worth doing.

You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.
You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.

Sorry but unless you have access to USENET and know what you are doing then no you will have to bite the bullet.

Testimonial: "thank you"
Map updates are not free, with the exception of a few units. Check your box, as they sell some units with lifetime maps and traffic.
