I bought a TomTom One 3rd edition from eBay, and I am trying to do the map udate, but I dont have the activation code. How do I get that activation code, and how can I update my maps?

So, before I spend $50 to try to update the maps....
1. Can they be updated, especially if it is a pirated unit? (if i try to buy an update, and it doesn't work, would I be able to get my money back from TomTom for the update?)
2. I also get a error from the Tomtom home program when that won't let me back it up to my computer.
3. Would it be best for me to just buy a new one instead of trying the update and it failing?

It can be updated, no problem. Even if TT HOME can't make a backup, you can make one via Explorer in Windows or Finder in Mac OS. Just make sure you save all the files, hidden ones inc.
I would rather return it though, and buy a new unit. In the US, you can buy many with free lifetime map update.

I tried to update my TomTom device and when connected to the computer asked me to format the device, because the computer did not recognize it. I had to format it, but I lost the map I had and I lost my activation code because I can not find my installation CD. Please, someone can help me with this.

Unless you have a backup or the map which was on your device was itself an update from that which was originally on your device, you are out of luck.
