I call for update they everything out of my Tom Tom then they couldn't update so they left me with my GPS with no GPS at all. The activation code you entered is valid but the associated product doesn't work with your device type or with the version of the application you have installed on it. However, Tom Tom was very good about working with me to make it work. Tom Tom email address for the US is [email protected] seem to be modifying the US web site and you may need to use the British web site to report problems if you want to use the web site to ask a question and get an answer. While traveling our Tom-Tom did speed alerts where there were no speed changes. When we did return we were notified an update was waiting so I really appreciate that.

The main problem I see is that the new software they attempt to put in does not fit in the first upgrade attempt, then on second attempt the old firmware will update first thus being able to detect the problem and remove the old stuff first then it all goes smoothly, but most people never make it to the second try it seems because the error messages are not clear enough, just disconnect the device totally from your PC and retry the updates, old stuff has to go first then the new maps will fit, If you have issues updating your device just follow the following simple steps and you should be good to go: 1-) Just go to the Tom Tom Home control panel, and play with the update options in the menus.
Ok, a GPS was one of those things I have been after for a while, but I refused to pay a lot for it, since I really don’t need it too much, except those few times I go out of town and addresses can be a pain to find, so my local Radio Shack had the Tom Tom XL 340s on sale for just 9, since they were still closed because it was very early in the morning and the Sears next to them was already open I asked the sales person if they would match the prices and he said yes without delay, he asked where I had seen that price and after telling him online, he asked how much they had it on sale for, I said I wasn’t sure if it was 0 or 9, he went ahead and checked Radio Shack’s site and it was actually 9, however guess what…
he matched the price to 0, so that’s what I ended up paying plus taxes, (A friend tells me the sales person wasn’t just nice, it’s because Sears actually has a price match .00 USD policy) either way I think I got a good deal because all other retail stores had it at anything from 9 to 9.
Does it back up up some other hidden information on the device, or do something extra with license management that's necessary?
Yes, definitely, please do a backup before you upgrade Tom Tom software.
