Yes, not problem here are the steps.

 

1. USB cable - any universal USB to mini USB cable will work ( try an office supply store or electronic dept store )

2. Download "Home" software from TomTom. see website for download.

3. Before updating gps be sure to create a backup of gps's memory. We recommend using Windows Explorer to make backup.

4. Update gps using Home software you downloaded.
