    Default New guide for updating Tomtom units

    ***** Firstly and most important - make a full back up copy of your Tomtom !!! *****

    Also you can make a note of your DeviceID code - you may possibly need it later to activate your maps, to get it tap the GPS bars on bottom right of your screen, then on next screen tap the small box that shows the Navcore version number - your DeviceID code is a 10 digit code similar to this
    - ABC12 345DE

    *********************************************************

    If you have an earlier Tomtom unit - Go300, 500, 700, 510, 710, 910 and some of the Tomtom One units and want to use the 'extras' such as ALG (Lane Guidance), IQ Routes & possibly ASR (Speech Recognition) then you will need to use a ready patched S/E version of Navcore - but you may find that your Tomtom does not operate 100% with a patched Navcore. To use any of the maps that have ALQ, IQ Routes etc....

    Navcore 9.510 SE for X00, X10, ONE ONE_XL

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]






    (I have not tested or tried either of these latest Navcores, I've got a Go730 and I use the latest official (but patched) version.)
    *********************************************************

    If you have a Tomtom Go 520, 720, 920, 530, 730, 930, 540, 740, 940 or the new OneXL with IQ Routes etc., you don't really need a SE version of Tomtom Navcore, just use the latest official version available, use Tomtom Home to get the latest update.

    If you are using a Genuine version of Navcore then you will need to 'Patch' the "ttsystem" file on your Tomtom if you want to use a 'copied' map. Use Tomtom Home to update your Tomtom to the latest version of Navcore before you do any patching or adding any new maps.

    If you have problems patching it, then here is a copy of the latest SE (modified & patched) version of Navcore v9.530 SE for GO x20, x30, x40 units

    *********************************************************

    Here's Albert's Activation Tool v0.57.21 with new meta file dated 24-11-13
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 24-11-13.zip
    Use this tool to patch the ttsystem file on your Tomtom if you are using genuine copy of Navcore (Tomtom software), use STEP 6 to do this task.

    *********************************************************

    Once you have got the Navcore on your Tomtom add the map folders as required and the postcode files (these are in the folder named ' zip ' - copy this folder to your Tomtom).

    To use the Activation Tool to activate your map :-

    Keygen Steps :-

    Step 1 - Select the keygen to use (in most cases it will be TT8_Keygen)

    Step 2 - Enter your DeviceID or find the ttgo.bif file on your Tomtom

    Step 3 - Browse to the Map Folder on your Tomtom

    Step 4 - Browse to the Meta file on your PC - this should be in the same folder as the Activation Tool - you could also try to download the latest Meta file from Albert's server.

    Step 5 - Click - Generate the *.dct file for your map

    Disconnect your Tomtom from your PC and start it up.

    Note - every time you start up your Tomtom after you have either removed your memory card or connected it to your PC it may take a few minutes to boot up.

    *********************************************************

    If you want to use Tomtom Home to operate your Tomtom while connected to your PC or to download the MapShare Updates you will have to patch your Tomtom Home .dll file on your PC. The location of this varies depending on your operating system, but it will be in a hidden folder so you may need to set your PC to show hidden files & folders.
    First you will have to use Tomtom Home and try to Operate your Tomtom Device - you will then have to download a file to do this, let the file download & install. Next disconnect Tomtom from PC & close Tomtom Home (right click on icon by the clock on your PC to do this). Then run STEP 6 in Albert's Activation Tool - Patch my Home DLL.

    XP Users:

    Tomtom Home v1.x:-
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ApplicationData\TomTom\HOME\Navigator Dlls\

    Tomtom Home up to v2.1 :-
    C:\Programfiles\TomTomHome2\xul\plugins\emulator\navcore

    Tomtom Home v2.2 - x.x :-
    C:\Documents and Settings\????\ApplicationData\TomTom\HOME\Profiles\????.default\extensions\Navcore.?.?????@tomtom.com

    Vista Users:-

    C:\Users\???????\AppData\Roaming\TomTom\HOME\Profiles\?????????.default\extensions\Navcore.?.?????@tomtom.com

    Mac Users:-
    User's_Home/Library/ApplicationSupport/TomTomHOME/Profiles/????????.default/Resources/Extensions/Navcore.?.???.????.mac@tomtom.com/?-???- ????-/.framework

    *********************************************************

    There are other tools available to do all of the above tasks - BBSTools, & BenBBS Tools if you have problems using Albert's Activation Tool.
    The latest BBS Tools is posted here :-

    Another tool to try is another of Alberts Activation tools v6, this one is run on your Tomtom unit.
    See this thread :-

    Thanks for the guide. I have a TomTom One that I would like to upgrade - and clues as to what maps and software work best to get the most out of it?

    If only I had this guide 3 weeks ago before I screwed up my mates 710 trying to install a USA map.
    Luckily he still had a month warrenty so he took it into comet and they sent it for a repair. He has it back now all working but doesn't seem to trust me to update the maps for some reason.
    Can't think why

    Thanks Russ, just finished doing this and all went well. Haven't tested it but i'll do that tomorrow and expect everything to be fine.

    EDIT: I used the activation tool in the original post as the one above didn't work.

    If you have added a new map did you try copying the old 'mapsettings.cfg' file from the old map folder ? - if you did then try deleting it.
