    Try getting the latest version of Navcore from Tomtom - use Tomtom Home & update (might have to do this a few times) - think it should be version 7.9**. Check it's all working with the map you've got now, once it's all ok then use the YDG tool to patch it & then add the v825.2159 map.

    Ok Russ had a google and found answer on ipmart, you have to have .NET installed before ydg proggy will run!!

    Ok Russ, this is what I did, updated tomtom firmware to 7.90 (official)
    then used YDG tool to patch ttsystem file on unit.
    Replaced old map with uk 825.2159 (no alg/i,q etc)
    Then patched this map with easy activator 0.57 (as per your instruction )

    And Bingo tomtom 300 works all ok with new map, and is not locking up and messing about like before.

    So to summerise looks like this 300 unit (friends ) prefers official firmware, whereas my 300 unit works fine with cracked Navcore 8.24.

    Once again Russ thanks for your Help..

    hello you can use the latest navcore 820** and the latest maps ver 825.1257 and thereby get all facility's eg lane guidance and iq routing etc. just follow the guide by russ, and if your tomtom dosnt like the latest navcore and locks up etc, just upgrade firmware to latest 7.90 on tomtom home and use maps ver 825.2159 without iq and lane guidance and use the ydg patch again all explained in russ's great guide...

    For information for Russ (and anyone else interested)......

    Having now done a few Go's, I have found some units don't like the newer navcore, and although everything seems to work you may find that the postcodes search locks up!!
    if this is the case you have to put tomtom latest firmware on usually 7.90,
    and use the 825.2159 maps and dont forget to patch the firmware with the YDG patch software.....
