How do I update the maps in my TomTom GPS?

Asked by choreplay (6290 points ) May 2nd, 2011

I understand the maps in my TomTom can be updated. This is the first time I was trying to update the maps. Since I don’t have the instruction book I went to the TomTom website. The only updates I saw there were to be purchased. Is the only way to update maps, by having to purchase the TomTom subscriptions?

Plug it into your computer, while on-line. It will update automatically

I did plug it in and it still is but it doesn’t appear to be doing anything??? I seem to download something onto my computer but no indication anything was being updated back to the TomTom?

Go into your computer search box off the start menu and enter Tom Tom. I know each time I completely reboot my computer then the Tom Tom symbol comes back but in between reboots, if I click to exit Tom Tom then it will disappear for awhile. Send me an IM reminder and I’ll look through my booklet when I get home and will reply to you if your download doesn’t get you straight again.
