Hello everyone,

 

I have a tomtom model 1ex00, I have not used it in a long time. I have just connected it to my mac powerbook to update it and download maps of the uk. 

 

Once I plug it in to the computer it is recognized. I downloaded and installed my tomtom to begin my task, however mytt doesnt see that the device is connected. I have tried restarting the device, unplugging replugging etc. to no avail. please help.

    Does that model use TThome, or myTT?  You can't choose, it has to be the one designed for your model.

    i do not know- i have tried it with mytt and it isn't recognized and gives no reason why. 

     

    i consulted the connect to device page

     

    http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7375/c/2356

     

    which says Note: The following navigation devices do not connect to HOME: GO 1000 series, GO LIVE 800 series, Via series, Start 20 series, Start 60, Blue&Me TomTom 2 LIVE, Sony XNV, TomTom Connect

     

    my model is not listed so i assumed it was mytt that worked not HOME. 

     

    please help.

    I'm a little confused, as your post title says "tomtom home", but your post says myTT. Have you never connected the device before?

    I would guess that your unit uses HOME, as the list above shows products that connect to myTT, and yours isn't on it.

    It's a free download.

    eerrrrrmmm, not unless Tomtom start giving them out for free.  You have to pay for a map upgrade.

    ok - i understand that but i saw the map share program and joined with a hope - but it seems that the shares are only avail for the country you originally purchased for is that right? 

     

    such a strong restriction if it is. thank you.

    mapshare does not mean you get other people to share whole map for free, or otherwise. People make small changes to the map on their own device (like a road is only one way, or the speed limit has changedd), and then they upload those changes to mapshare. (Not all devices have a mapshare option, but most do.) If you choose to you can download those changes.

    I am NOT a TomTom employee, just a user like others. Report map errors at: http://www.tomtom.com/mapshare/tools/# ***One can report temporary road closures too via the MSR Tool now***
