Thread: Cant activate maps after latest Navcore update.

    Cant activate maps after latest Navcore update.

    Today via Home I updated to the latest official Navcore for my TT Go520 and using the current activators available on this site, I cannot activate the maps.
    In spite of my many years of experience updating my TT, I did a very silly thing and forgot to make a backup. I have downloaded another Navcore from this site, but that too has the same problem. Can anyone help me get it running. TT device details below.

    DeviceName=TomTom GO 520
    DeviceVersionHW=GO 520

    You didn't say which maps?

    You also have to patch the navcore after a navcore update.

    Re: Cant activate maps after latest Navcore update.

    Its West Europe & UK 895 maps which worked fine on the old genuine Navcore. I used Easy Tools and Easy Activator which have automatic options. Easy Activator says a required file is missing, so it wont patch. Have used these activators many times with the previous genuine Navcore without a problem, so I was wondering if anyone else has recently updated to the latest genuine Navcore with the same problem.

    I have the ttsystem patcher in Easy Tools. Does this need to run from the SD card or internal drive on device?

    No, I just tried and it still says a required file is missing, it does not say which one.

    Just downloaded FASTACTIVATE from here... and the TTsystem patcher worked! For some reason the patcher was not working on the other two activators. Thanks.

    Hi Jenny,
    I had exactly the same problem after the TomTom Home Navcore update. It looks like the new Navcore update doesn't work with the older FastActivate. I initially tried the new FastActivate 19th Oct version and it failed to activate although TomTom homes "operate my device" did see the map as working.

    Did a clean install added any updates rebooted added the map then applied FastActivate 19 Oct 2012 version and its all working fine
