Go 730 Map Update Question



Recently I have purchased map update service for my Go 730 device and with the recent release of map update I was prompt to update the map version from TomTom Home.

After the update my favorites and Home location were reset.


I did the same update to my other TomTom device, XXL 540 and on that device the Home location and the favorite list were exactly as before the update.


My question is why is it different between the two devices? Did I do something wrong? How can I backup the Favorite list and Home location (not the entire device)?


Many thanks,

Re: Go 730 Map Update Question

The 730 is on Navcore 8.351. The N8 models do not retain favourites as a rule between map updates. The 540, being on Navcore 9, does normally retain the information.


Copy the mapsettings.cfg file from the backed up NA map on the 730 to the new map folder and your favourites should return.
