Hi all..
Haven't had any problems with the tomto since the day I got the car - but now the satnav is now showing my location has being 2 or 3 miles away from my current location. I have updated the Card with new maps and also did a full reset but without too much joy still have the same problem. Can anyone shed any light on what could be wrong? - Many thanks

    you can use new SD card - format FAT32. Insert into sat nav. Then in 2 minutes use option to remove SD card in the menu and connect to PC and open TomTOm Home2 application - all necessary updates will be proposed

    The latest version of map is 10.65 though you need to buy it, it is not for free.

    This is what I have on the screen - the current location should be Newton - and as you can see Zero Sat's and date and time set to 1st of Jan at 12 midnight. 3 Ideas of thought - 1) has this unit got the TomTom Rider 2013 which maybe something to do with it. For the past few months the clock hasn't been showing the time and would only show it after 20min to over an hour of driving. 2) When I update the SD card no matter if I leave it an hour and plug it back in again to the PC, it tells me that the UK maps need updating which it then downloads and transfers to the SD card even if I have already done it. So is SD card corrupted in some way (I can read it in windows) or 3) is the Sat control modular given up or has the sat nav aerial needs replacing? if anyone can help? Thanks Martin.

    Me and the wife have Lagunas - so and hers was working fine till I did an update and it came up with Can't read the map file. So you know what I was thinking (how the hell do I get out of this one without her-in-doors finding out) lol. So did what you said again but on her card and it worked. But I don't know if it got current map, do you know what version we are on and why did it balls up on a update? - thanks again. Regards Martin.

    I'll have a look in the morning - I paid for another year's subs on both units. It was just when I updated the mrs car and went back to plug it in and switched it on, it came up with an error saying it couldn't read the maps. I had to do what you said with the card and then let TomTom Home2 application download everything onto the card. Btw, if you need to know anything about the Laguna (replacing stuff) let me know got a cracking bit of software. thanks Martin.
