I have an XL IQ 340S that we have not used in a couple of months. It's charged, it activates and picks up a GPS signal with no problem. I hae a new computer so I downloaded the TomTomsoftware and then followed the directions to connect the TomTom to the computer. The computer recognizes the TomTom and I select connect to the computer. The computer aknowledges the connection but then nothing else happens. I've tried a soft reset with no effect and I logged out and restarted the computer but I still get nothing after the unit connects.
I have putchased the annual map upgrades and need to get them loaded into the TomTom but cannot get the program to open.

I think I've fixed the error. The support page listed MyTomTom as the program to load when in fact it should have been TomTom Home. With Home loaded it looks like everything is working.

Yep the XL340 uses TomTom Home.
Now that you have everything working don't forget to make a full backup of the gps.
