Looking for answers and tips

Mar 28, 2011
West coast of Canada
TomTom Model(s)
GO 730
Not exactly a new user, been using the GO 730 for about 8 months. I bought it for work because it has the built in MP3 player - which works 'ok', and is good enough for work. (local radio is lame)

What i'm trying to do is give TomTom some money and update the thing. I've been trying for 6 months, and I consistantly get an error.
I spoke to TomTom via email, and they said it was either that I hadnt cleared my cache, or my profile had become corrupted - and I should delete it and create a new one.

I did both. I still can't update it. I can't say they make it easy for me to pay them. Now i'd just like to find a coupon or something I can buy that will allow me to do an update manually, if that even exists. TomTom tech support was not helpful, and the "an error has occured, report to TomTom Anonymously" is perfect.

Anyone else have this problem updating?
I've tried on 2 separate PC's:
Windows 7 Pro, Tried on Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.6 and 4.0
XP PRO SP3, Tried on Firefox 3.6.

This is the error I consistantly get:

Thanks Aiken! I would tend to agree with you except I dont get that far. It fails at the point where I think it should be asking for payment information. At the Checkout level, I click 'pay now' and then that error comes up.
Might be easier to call their 866-486-6866 number and tell them what you're trying to do. You're not the first to run into payment problems. See if they can take direct payment (never tried that) over the phone, and "push" the map to you as an update through Home.
