    To update your device with the latest map, follow these simple steps:

    1) VERY IMPORTANT: Connect your device to your computer via USB. Using Windows Explorer, open your TomTom drive and backup the complete contents of your TomTom.

    2) Check your navcore version. You can do this either on the device menu under Version Info, or you can check the navcore version in TomTom Home when the device is connected to your computer.

    3) Check which map is compatible with your navcore using the latest compatibility chart

    4) Delete the old map folder.

    5) Copy across the new map folder into the root of the device.

    6) Download the latest version of FastActivate (or other tool of your choice)

    Unzip the file and copy across FastActivate.exe to the TomTom drive (the root of the device).

    7) Run FastActivate.exe from the TomTom drive, clicking on all 4 options in order, waiting for each to complete:


    Update meta, activate maps, patch navcore & home.
