    Default Help with Tomtom Via 1535

    I bought a Via 1535 and would like to add maps from Brazil. Does anyone knows how to do it? I am not able to see the Tomtom drive to install the maps.

    The Via series can only be updated through TT Myhome, as they do not show up on your computer as an extra drive.
    Thus the only way is to legally buy a map from TT.
    Noone has been able to get around this problem so far.

    If you want free map updates or add your own POI, sounds etc, stick to the old versions !!!

    Did you try to put the map into the User folder that Home generates?
    Here is how a directory containing an original downloaded map looks like.

    Directory D:\Users\Username\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete\map\Nord_America

    22/11/2009 19:39 <DIR> .

    6 File 2,000,450,352 byte
    2 Directory 25,230,520,320 byte available
    D:\Users\Username\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete\map\Nord_America>

    The TOC file is a XML file, pretty complex indeed.

    But if you have already a map in your device you can back it up via Home, then you should find it below
    D:\Users\Username\Documents\TomTom\HOME\FromDevice\map
    This will give you the "structure" of a folder containing a map.

    The idea is to create then a new folder, similar to the one you got via backup, which you should put the new map into, so as to have "Home" see it.
    It's worth to try.

    New to this forum.

    I have a VIA 1535, it doesn't use TThome... Only uses myTomTom. You are correct, it does not show as an extra drive on PC.

    Not sure about how to load other maps, but POI's and such have loaded just fine thru "add community content" for me.
