Hi, I have a built in Navigation in my Mazda CX 5. When I try to connect my ad card to my computer (Mac) and into Tom Tom home, the SD card gives an error and does not read. The message says “there are error in your memory card that cannot be fixed by Home” ..what does this mean ? Thx

    Hi @Puneet

    Welcome to the community! It might be an issue with the files on the memory card getting corrupted.
    Which is the current map installed?
    We might have to format and restore the contents.

    Regards, Vikram

    Thanks Vikram for the response. This is my first time in the community.

    I have a USA Canada map and it runs well on the inbuilt navigation system in my vehicle. But throws an error when I connect it to my Mac onto TomTom home.

    The error screen shot is attached.

    I have the exact same problem as Puneet. Same map installed.

    Everything works fine in the car GPS unit. Nothing has been updated in a while, ever since the old was no longer supported by newer Mac OS. I found that there is a new app that now runs on the latest Mac OS, but after installing it, it displays this error.

    Still having the same error message in TomTom HOME on my Mac laptop despite trying multiple solutions.

    Customer service had me remove the loopdir folder and have the nav unit replace it, which did not fix the problem. They also had me erase the card and copy back the map, which did not fix the problem. They now claim that I need to purchase a new SD Card.

    However, my laptop accesses the card just fine. I am able to erase it and reload the map, voices, and everything else from my laptop with no issues whatsoever. The card still works great in my Mazda nav unit. The nav unit has not problems accessing the card.

    The only thing that can't access the SD Card is the TomTom HOME software.

    Also, on the website, when I try to purchase a new map, and it asks me to enter the first 2 characters of the serial number, the website says that the USA_Canada map is not compatible with my device.

    It's not like I can change my nav device, since it is built into my Mazda CX-5. What is going on with TomTom? Are they about to go out of business?

    Hi All

    After reviewing the currently open tickets I could not find something specific this the error mentioned above.
    My suggestion would be to contact our customer service team and report this problem so the concerned team can start investigating.

    Regards, Vikram
