Serial Number?

Well, my car was broken in to and my TomTom was stolen. If I can provide my device serial number, the police can put it in their Pawn Shop database and I have a (slim) chance of getting it back. Since I have plugged my device into my computer, can I retrieve my device serial number stored somewhere? Thanks for your help!!

Re: Serial Number?

Did you happen to make a backup of your unit's contents? If so, you'll find the info in the ttgo.bif file

If you have a backup copy of the memory on your hard drive, you can look at the file named ttgo.bif, its in the root directory.

Open this file with something like notepad. The serial number is the third item on the list.

 

If you made a backup using Home --- a backup copy of the memory is stored in this path:

 

C:\Documents and Settings\Your_User_Name\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Backup\ONE XL\Backup01\InternalMemory

 

You might also call customer service and give them your login name. They may have the serial number of your gps linked to your login.
