20 Most Recent Tomtom Go 700 Portable GPS Receiver Questions & Answers

If you insert the SD card into your TomTom device, and you can see it ... as one of the maps on your device ( when you go to Menu ... Change Map ... etc. ). ... try selecting that map, and if it doesn't tell you it is not available or not activated, then you can use it. Otherwise, you need an activation code to activate the map.

If the map on the SD card is a LifeTime map, you can simply connect your device to the tomtom website (using the HOME software), and it will let you know you have an update (of that map) to download and install. Otherwise, you have to subscribe (i.e. pay) for an update of the map.

Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,
formatting is better done in a card reader.

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"

It may warn you but you can ignore it.
then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card


Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card
It should now work

Possible back light failure. don't know about 'repair for this sort of thing Mu guess is like other small electronics of this type they are made as integrated 'lumps' and there is not a repair option. Try the Tech support at the TT website Especially if it is fairly recent. May be a replacement option

The screen shows an X when the navigation software on your TomTom is corrupted ... and it will not start (boot) up the device.
