Advice on downloading maps

Updating your map is a simple way of making sure you can get to where you want to be. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be driving with the latest map! We recommend taking the following into consideration before downloading a map.

  • MyTomTom cannot advise that a map has not downloaded correctly. Sometimes it may appear to be a successful download, but the map does not install properly. MyTomTom needs to have a stable and unrestricted internet connection. Hence, we highly recommend that you connect directly to the internet with a network cable and do not use a wireless network connection. This is because a wireless connection can be subject to interference.

  • Firewalls, antivirus scanners and pop-up blockers can also interfere with a map download. It may be necessary to configure your firewall and router to allow TomTom HOME/MyTomTom full access to the internet. If you are trying to download your map on a business network, for example, in an office at your workplace, be aware that your company may have download restrictions and access policies that may prevent a map from being downloaded.
