Hi all. Been looking through the forums but not found any advice that may may solve my problem. I have a tomtom one and a while ago my map (UK and ROI) got corrupted. I had also failed to backup (stupid I know) and tomtom support didn't really help much.

Well, I've tried all sorts the latest being copying the contents of friend's tomtom SD card (identical model + maps to mine). At some point I erased/formatted the card (on a Mac) so think I have lost all trace of the original info. Suffice to say copying from my friend's card did not work. I was met with the tomtom screen that shows the card being rejected upon start up :eek:.

I'd really like to avoid having to avoid buying a new card from tomtom and am hoping there is a way of 'saving' my tomtom.

Think I have bad news.....

Even if your friend's map is on a legitimate sd card from TomTom, you can't simply copy the contents to your card since the other map is locked to the card. In other words, you can't copy from a legitimate sd card to another and have the map work.

Thanks + that's what I thought the answer might be. I was wondering if there was a way around this through a hack or similar. After paying the device I'm really not keen on spending more money for the same thing I've already bought.
