    Just run option 5 from FastActivate from here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] then just copy/paste result here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and newer.

    Once F/A option 5 has run (assuming this is a new map we/it does not already have) then the F/A screen should show something like:-

    ; United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland 925_5412
    15 E7 E7 97 BA 41 CE 2F D8 1B 00 9A CF 59 65 0A United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland-877.meta

    and will add a new Meta.txt file in the map folder

    If, as we think, this is a genuine new map then YOU (as the original owner) don't need to activate it, plus remember, F/A does not yet include this new meta so won't automatically activate other devices (yet)

    I have a tomtom that has an original map on it. Updated it via tomtom home today. I have downloaded a copy of the same map from this website and installed it on my other tomtom. I have produced a meta file from the tomtom with the original map and have copied this meta file into the meta file that comes with fast activate program. When I use fast activate it says there is a dct error and the map wont work?

    ...also (for others) from F/A "help" file:-

    Buttons:

    1. Update meta.txt
    Update to latest meta.txt available (if servers are not down). You need to allow wget.exe in your firewall if asked.

    Note: If you have a new meta code which is not in the integrated or updated meta.txt (See in program for date of current integrated meta.txt)
    then you must put all new meta codes in a file named META.TXT and copy it to the same location as FastActivate.exe.
