Installing TTN6 using SD card

5 posts in this topic

I have just bought Tomtom 6 to run on my MDA compact III. I bought it on SD card and expected I could just copy the contents to my micro SD card and that would be it.

Not quite that easy, no auto-install occurring. Has anybody else managed this? The box says it is compatible.

When I have used the file explorer to run TTN.cab the programme starts but says no maps found.

All help appreciated

Welcome to the site :)

Just copying the files over "as is" should work and not be a problem, make sure you have not created sub folders.

Next check the My Documents folder on the phone, you should have a folder called TomTom. Next make sure there's a file in it, any file should do, then after running TomTom a CurrentMap.dat file will be created and the other file can then be removed.

I thought TomTom6 also came with a cd with the maps on as well?

Thanks for the welcome and the quick response. Had the MDA for a couple of weeks now and have found this forum very useful.

I will have another play with this tomorrow as its the last works christmas meal tonight :)

The CD has satellite imagery and voices I think, but when I try to install these (using Tomtom Home) it tells me to insert CD 0.

Next make sure there's a file in it, any file should do, then after running TomTom a CurrentMap.dat file will be created and the other file can then be removed.

I feel this is a stupid question, but once data transferred to the MDA storage card, where should I go to run TomTom?

TomTom should be added to the bottom of the today screen by default.

:) All working fine now. I had created a sub-folder when copying from one card to the other. How you worked that out I don't know, but you have saved me several hours of swearing.

Thanks and a merry christmas to all.
