Is there an information that I can give the police as I have already reported the theft?

    On your computer, go to the prefs.ini file in your Home3 folder (in my Windows 10 computer, the folder is located here:
    C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\TomTom\HOME3)

    It's a text file so scroll down to the [LastConnectedDevice] section.

    You should find the model and serial number of your (stolen) device.

    I have had my sat nav stolen in Marsailles (avoid!)...can it be blocked to stop further use if someone connects it to the internet......and can I reuse my purchased European maps on a new TOMTOM that I purchased for it?? :?:(

    I am afraind not; TOMTOM link "hardwire" the license of a specific map to a specific device and you cannot load your map on another device.
    TOMTOM Home will describe the map as "incompatible to your device"
    I have two TOMTOM XXL 540, one with "US&Canada", the other with "EU45" and cannot backup the "US&Canada" map in order to load a different "EU45" zone on the 2nd device :(
