    Has anyone actually successfully run this to do all the things in the tabs?
    I tried a simple test to activate a map we have a meta for "Make DCT" and it said no ttgo.bif found although the SD card is FULLY loaded.
    It also WRONGLY shows my bootloader as 10012 when it's actually 5.5120!!
    Would also be a great help if the guida.chm could also be offered in English.
    thanks

    As with any new tools not posted by team members the quality control is up to the user that downloads it - same for the support.
    We have trusted and working tools that we support as we know they work fine.
    Providing "new" tools is relative as each and every single one of them is based on the original TTUSER Easytools.
    The skins change, the features change but the working stuff behind is always the same.
    Before posting a new tool in an internatational forum it should be fully tested and at least offer full support in english, including a help.

    In general I don't like "throw in postings" where someone just dumps a download without proper explanations and instructions - screenshots are always handy
    If trusted members like BG now say the tool does not work the way it should I recommend leaving this tool where it is until a proper version is available.
    Everyone knowing what DOS is can use the original tools with no problem in the world, for others there is FastActivate, the Easyusetool frontend (german), Albert's Easy Activator or even Bens BBS tool.
    Blatant errors like the above only show that a toll is in it's beta state but not fully functional yet.

    You can download a new version from the same url at first post. Developer tried to fix the bug of

    ttgo.bif.

    You could also try to click on Settings/Activation e then click on "Enable" and "Maps and

    speedcams" then on Save. When you will start the tool again it should activate all maps in your

    TomTom.
    When you launch exe tool will try to find tomtom. If it finds the device then saves deviceid in

    deviceid.txt, copies ttgo.bif in EXE_PATH/Easyusetools and stores device letter in EE.ini.
    When you clicked on Make DCT you got that error since tool could not read ttgo.bif from device,

    due to a bug.

    It also WRONGLY shows my bootloader as 10012 when it's actually 5.5120!!
    Did you try selecting other "system" files from official navcores?

    Would also be a great help if the guida.chm could also be offered in English.
    thanks
    I think it will be added asap.

    Thank you for reporting bugs.

    You are right.

    New does not mean new activation method.

    Sure.

    If anyone wants to help to improve this tool I think it is well accepted.
    I think that also other tools released after original Easyusetools, at first, had some bugs.

    OK, just tried latest Silver5 version
    1. I followed your suggestion of:- you could also try to click on Settings/Activation & then click on "Enable" and "Maps and
    speedcams" then on Save. When you will start the tool again it should activate all maps in your TomTom.


    Correct BUT although it activated the UK map/speedcams & my voices it hasn't done the Truck v901 map or speedcams in there and it's now frozen where it's listing MAPS FOUND etc

    I really think that before you release a further update it should be thoroughly tested by your developers who have a couple of different maps/speedcams/premium voices etc and, ideally, with a couple of different navcores too??
    I'm happy to test it BUT I don't want to be the one who keeps finding major problems with it.
    Once YOU guys think they've got it right then by all means re-release it & we can check/test it THEN

    @Downunder35m please add this advice to first post

    Tool may have some bugs so we recommend to download it only if you want to help developer to fix them and to improve application. Report bugs and suggestions in this topic.
