Probably very similar to this description

Working with Linux?


Well it seems latest versions of Tomtom HOME don't work yet.
You can install it under wine but it doesn't recognize that the device is plugged in so it's pretty useless.

aptitude install wine-unstable lib32nss-mdn cabextract
sh winetricks vcrun2005sp1
cd /media/INTERNAL
wine InstallTomTomHOME.exe

I also tried Maxibox:

Misc links

Beware some are probably referring to the older Tomtom One!

Mass storage

At least it appears just as a mass storage under Linux so you can backup, copy files etc.

  • Connect Tomtom to PC.
  • Turn Tomtom on
  • Choose to connect to PC.

Disk label is apparently "INTERNAL"

Working with Windows

As we don't have choice...
If you're behind a proxy you'll experience this:
Tomtom plugged in -> Start Installer -> connection error
Download and execute manually
It'll install and then give again an error -> ok -> Tools -> Connection -> Proxy
After the Tomtom was plugged and software was installed, Windows wanted to reboot because of a new driver installed, typical...

Software Upgrades


So I finally connected the device to a Windows box and let it upgrade whatever it wanted (you don't need to login to do that apparently).
The changelog didn't show yet what were the improvements
Now it shows (for what changed):

 App 8.414 (1239/090707) OS : 320300
 GPS v1.20, Boot 5.5130

Latest Map Guarantee

I was a bit surprised that even after having linked my device with my account it proposed to buy map updates while I was supposed to get them for free the first time.
Then I discovered the menu option Tools -> Use Latest Map Guarantee -> Get it now
Note that you can only use it once and only in the first sth (3 months?) after having bought it.

See below for the failure I had after an update, it worked better when I removed first the old map (but beware it also removes your favorites etc so make a backup first!)

New map was 200Mb larger but it came with... 200Mb of cspeech_XXX.dat files which are probably the TTS data, useless for my model so I can probably remove them.



Beware it's maybe compatible only with previous Tomtom One versions!!


TTconsole, to get virtual keyboard, click on upper right corner (but extreme right was inactive on my setup, I've to click sth like 5mm away from the right border.
Keyboard is qwertz, argh. ( > is shift+<, / is shift+7, = is shift+0)

  • Be sure the battery is full, leave it charging for at least 2 hours with the loading green LED turned on.
  • Push on on/off button for more than 15 secs till it starts


full backup, partition image

It's very important to make a first backup of your Tomtom as soon as possible as I got my first problem very soon, see below.
To make the backup under Linux, ideally do it as very first time even before turning it on so you'll have the very initial image (change /dev/sdb to your own device):

For the mbr: (in principle the first 512 bytes are enough, the rest is filled with zeroes)

$ dd if=/dev/sdb of=tomtom-mbr.bin bs=512 count=245

For the filesystem:
Make sure your device is connected but not mounted!!!

$ dd if=/dev/sdb of=tomtom-sdb1.bin
4011595+0 records in
4011595+0 records out
2053936640 bytes (2.1 GB) copied, 3604.15 s, 570 kB/s
$ file sdb1 
sdb1: x86 boot sector, 
      code offset 0x0, OEM-ID "        ", 
      sectors/cluster 64, 
      root entries 512, 
      Media descriptor 0xf8, 
      sectors/FAT 245, 
      heads 64, 
      hidden sectors 245, 
      sectors 4011595 (volumes > 32 MB) , 
      serial number 0x6f0ecbbd, 
      FAT (16 bit)

full backup, on file basis

Actually I didn't do it like that, rather my device was automounted after I configured it so I copied the whole file structure manually to a ext3 partition. This was still ok to save my device when it crashed.
FYI a few files were already created/modified after the initial setup and usage:

Some files modified before the clock was set:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil    48 2000-04-09 14:02 CurrentMap.dat
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil  1515 2000-04-09 14:18 ttgo.bif
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil   632 2000-04-09 14:02 Western_and_Central_Europe_2GB/DeletedPoi.local
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil    48 2000-04-09 14:02 Western_and_Central_Europe_2GB/MapUserPatch.dat

And after the clock was set (here we check for files modified the last 5 days):

$ find . -type f -mtime -5 -exec ls -l {} \;
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil     3 2009-08-29 19:21 itn/temporary.iti
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil  2848 2009-08-29 18:19 Western_and_Central_Europe_2GB/MapSettings.cfg
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil   844 2009-08-29 19:21 settings.dat
-rwxr-xr-x 1 phil phil    68 2009-08-29 18:19 UserPatch.dat

inc backup

Sometimes you want to see exactly those files who changed since last time (e.g. you added voices, POI,...)
You can copy the files from the Tomtom fs to have a first full backup (but not a partition image)
Then make from time to time other backups (without the big map files if you didn't change maps, to get quicker).
Then run dupemap from magicrescue to keep only the files which have changed since the initial backup:

dupemap -d scan tomtom-fs.orig
dupemap -d delete,report tomtom-fs.incremental

Then prune empty directories:
Execute several times the following until you don't have error messages:

find . -type d -empty -exec rm -r {} \;


  • Favorites:
    • <map-subdir>/MapSettings.cfg
  • Map corrections by user:
    • <map-subdir>/MapUserPatch.dat
  • POI:
    • <map-subdir>/<POIname>.bmp
    • <map-subdir>/<POIname>.ov2
    • poi/<POIname>.tlv
  • Voices:
    • voices/data<NN>.bmp
    • voices/data<NN>.chk
    • voices/data<NN>.tlv
    • voices/data<NN>.vif

How to create your own content: POI, voice, images, colour schemes, routes & map overlays


I was surprised my QuickGPSfix was not updated anymore at a point in time, I don't remember how it happened.
The solution I found was to restore the old QuickGPSfix file I had from Tomtom Home application (Add traffic, Voices etc -> More -> More -> More -> items on my computer -> QuickGPSfix Data) then trigger "Update my ONE"

Filesystem failure!

Well it didn't take long to have the first troubles, it happened before I did anything strange like adding applications or whatever:
I accidentally hitted the radar report (three clicks as same place on screen on the quick menu is all you need :( ) and wanted to remove it manually before connecting my Tomtom online. So I mounted the device under linux again and started a big "diff -Naur".
Then I discovered that there were strange new files in a subdirectory and when I started deleting those files I got a "read-only device" error.
After that, the Tomtom was rebooting in an endless loop :(
I solved the problem by doing the following:
I read that the device was sometimes slow and for sure the FAT16 didn't seem to be handled in a robust way so I preferred to prepare everything offline:

  • Create an empty 2Gb file
dd if=/dev/zero of=tomtom-fixed.bin bs=512 count=4011595
  • Format it (here I let the default FAT32, remember the original one was FAT16...
mkfs.vfat tomtom-fixed.bin
  • Mount it loopback
mkdir tomtom-fixed
mount -o loop tomtom-fixed.bin tomtom-fixed
  • Copy files from my backup to the loopback mounted filesystem
  • Make sure your device is connected but not mounted!!!
  • Copy the new filesystem to the device (check what's your device link)
dd if=tomtom-fixed.bin of=/dev/sdb1
  • Disconnect the device and let it reboot

Yes!!! it worked again, pfiuuuut!

Note that it's now FAT32 but I didn't change the partition table which still says FAT16:

Disk /dev/sdb: 2055 MB, 2055208960 bytes
64 heads, 63 sectors/track, 995 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 4032 * 512 = 2064384 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1               1         995     2005797+   6  FAT16

Disk label is apparently empty now.

Infinite reboot after map update

After a "Latest Map Guarantee" update, the device never rebooted properly, sticking on Tomtom logo :(
I tried to reset it, keeping power button pressed, and got green screen (like if you fire only the green sub-pixels).
Back on computer, connection with Tomtom HOME was fine.
I noticed that size of the map in "items on device" was still the size of the previous smaller map.
So I chose to delete the map from the device then tried again the map update and then it finally worked again.
Deletion of the "previous" map deleted also my map favorites.

When I tried to reinstall the backup of MapSettings.cfg it failed again so apparently that was the cause of the problem.
I reinstalled the "empty" MapSettings.cfg that came with the Latest Map Guarantee update and it worked fine again.

So now how to re-import my old favorites (& home address BTW)?


  • This blog explains exactly the same issue, apparently an incompatibility between old mapsettings.cfg and new maps.
    Her suggestion is to use POI to store favorites, mmm...
  • A solution is proposed on this forum:
    • Copy again MapSettings.cfg to the device
    • Launch Tomtom HOME
    • Choose to operate your device remotely (this takes time to start)
    • Now on your remote Tomtom screen, add a favorite & delete it, this "fixes" the file
    • Now problem should be fixed, you're back with your favorites!

In the operation of deleting the old map and installing the new one, I lost also the speed cameras files & other POIs so I had to reinstall them from a previous backup
