    I don't know much about the AVN2210P.
    But from a quick look at the manual, I see it has a removable SD card and a USB connection like normal TomToms.

    So either connect it to your PC via the USB socket or remove the SD card and put it in a card reader attached to the PC.

    Then make a backup, by copying EVERYTHINGfrom the card into a new folder somewhere safe on your PC.

    Then delete the LOOSE files from the card i.e. the ones which are not in a folder. (do not delete any folders or their contents).

    Then run TomTom Home, and it should offer to re-install the latest software.

    Hopefully that will sort it.
