  • TOMTOM 710 1GB

    Hi,

    I tried having a look through this site and other, but can't seem to find anything to help !

    (probably because i don't know what i'm doing)

    I have a TOMTOM Go 710 with a 1gb TOMTOM original SD card.

    I wanted to update the map so took a backup of the whole SD card and put on a new map files...

    nothing worked so i deleted the new stuff and tried copying all the original stuff back, but then it told me there wasn't enough room on the SD card !!!

    Since then i've managed to get myself in a right mess and have no idea what should be on the card or not.

    When i turn the TOMTOM on it says something like "no maps found"

    any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

      ok....done the following...

      1. formatted SD (i used FAT16 as it's onlyt a 1GB SD)
      2. loaded the files on SD
      3. put SD in TOMTOM and turned on until i got the 'no maps found'
      4. turned TOMTOM off (what was that noise on exit ?)
      5. downloaded the following map:

      WE_1gb_850_2783
      pass lazy
      Code: 6. the map file size is 918mb, but after adding the files in stage (2) there is only 906mb free on the sd card

      Is there anything i can delete from either the first set of files or from the map files to make room ? (maybe that annoying noise on TOMTOM switch off for example ?)

      PLEASE HELP ?

        Why not just buy a bigger sd card?

          yea, thanks for the suggestion, but i'm sticking with this 1gb card thanks.

          it's an original TOMTOM card so it must be able to fit all the files on there !!

          thanks

            hi and thanks for all the help so far...

            i deleted the Vokalizers folder and loaded the map files on into a folder called "Western_Europe_1GB-163"

            the TOMTOM is now saying "problem with map... You cannot use this map on this device: Western_Europe_1GB-163"

            any suggestions ?

              Sounds like you need to patch the map with a keygen

                    ok...i couldn't find anything called 'on-activator', but i tried using the easy-activator tool.

                    problem is that i get an error when i come to 'generate the *.meta.dct file...
                    ---------------
                    There is no such map ('Western_Europe_1GB-163.meta') in keyfile
                    'Meta.txt'
                    'Western_Europe_1GB-163.meta' - Error
                    ---------------

                    please help !

                      i don't get it....you posted the link for it - why would you do that if there is no meta data for it yet ???

                      can you suggest suitable map please ?

                      thanks

                        You could always put your old map back on and wait for the meta, it shouldn't be long

                            In that case would be reasonable to think over buying a bigger SD card. Nowadays it isn't so expensive..

                              i might have to do that, but this isn't for me, it's my father in laws.

                              there must be a working western europe map and meta somewhere, whatever the latest is would do fine....i mean...it used to have one that worked fine and fitted on the card

                              i understand why it's so difficult to find....the maps forum isn't the easiest place to find what you're looking for.
