For the last two days TTHome2 has failed to connect to the TT website for updates (map, POIs, QuickGPSfix), error:
"The following problem occurred. You can continue, but functionality may not be available.
Error when contacting server: The connection to the TomTom server timed out."
When I access tomtom.com with, Firefox, Opera and IE8, all "hang", failing to connect and the same has just happened trying to access the link, in an email I've just received from TT, advertising TT chargers working from car ciggy lighter. So I think the problem is not connected with my GO, but either tomtom.com or my PC. But I've no problem accessing other sites. . .
I've checked all three browsers, tomtom.com is not denied internet access, nor is it in my firewall, ZoneAlarm.
Make sure there is no entry for tomtom.com in your "hosts" file.
This would block your connection.
Location is depending on your OS, but try "\windows\system32\drivers\etc"
If you are running XP/Vista/W7, I would suggest to do a system restore to a date prior of your problems.
Again, depending on your OS, but try clicking on "start" and run "restore"
This will not erase any data on your PC, just resets some system files which might solve the problem
