I have the mother-in-laws (Don't laugh) One Xl and have tried on a few occassions to update the maps but it seems to have a connection problem between it and my vista pc.
I connect it to my pc and select connect to computer ...I even run Home 2.8 ....It sees the device and advices me of the updates etc so i select download and update .....It downloads the updates and other files (Speedcams quickfix etc) but it seem forever transfering to the device...the on screen red cross(Do not disconnect) symbol and the flashing blue H/D symbol seem to come on and off and it takes forever to transfer over...
I have tried just connecting to the unit and then dragging the maps across but it can take over an hour some times to send a 200mb file dropping in and out...And when i mod the files the device either locks up at boot up or doesnot see the maps
Now i don't think it is my computer as i have 'updated' several devices including my spare 910 and various others with removable memory cards.... it only seems to be this device....it's a V9 Xl so was wondering if any other peeps out there are having trouble with this particular model...
Me thinks it could be a internal memory problem ...I have done a disk check for errors and the device remained connected all the way through...It said it had repaired some errors but then i had the same problems with connection.
Cheers for any advice
Oh just as a after thought....when i connect the device to my computer unlike all the other devices i connect it only sees the Xl as 'Internal' ??? ...No tomtom logo etc:-
I have reformated the memory after past attempts and put back the gen software annd maps but still comes up like that even though the unit works fine....it's just the cost!!! lol
Sorry maybe i didn't explain clearly..It's not the downloading of the maps that is the problem it's transfering the data to the device....It seems to just lose connection ...then re-connect ...I have tried modding the firmware and loading and activating maps but i have ended up having to re-format the device and connect to TomTom home to re-load the original navcore and maps which still took an age to transfer ??
I have an old tomtom one and even if i connect that up it doen't take long to transfer the data likewise on my 910 ....Yet on this xl it just connects ..transfers some data then stops connection...then starts transfering again ...This carries on for ages....way longer that it should...
I've done a disk scan and repair ...Not sure about the program used but at this moment will give it a try....I'm gonna give it a try with my Xp laptop or even my vista lappy....anything at the moment really cos it's really piggin me off lol
