    Perhaps the TT Mapshare servers are acting up (They do that from time to time).

    I'd just try again tomorrow.........

    DHN, there's a file you can clear on the TT to prompt Home to download mapshare updates when it's saying the map is up to date. I just can't remember the dang file name. Perhaps I just jogged your memory?

    Also to the OP. What map version do you have? If it's more than a year old, you might not get anymore updates anyway.

    Well, if you delete everything in the ephemeris folder found here (by default):
    C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\My Documents\TomTom\HOME \
    Downloads\complete\ephemeris
    ,

    it often 'kickstarts' the dl of a new gpsquickfix file.
