Hi all well recently bought an xl about 2 months ago,and had version 1.6 running and it was making my comp freeze device would not update properly etc so i never bothered updating until yesterday my device is running app.6.50 i think.so i went to TT Website and installed Home 2.1 and it ran nice and smooth plugged in my XL and was told 2 updates were available the latest app 7.13 and quickgps downloaded installed both of em and on reboot the tomtom gave me the dreaded red cross on start-up and when i ran home again it was telling me my F:ttsystem file was corrupt:(So i formatted the card reinstalled a winexplorer backup and all is good again...but i fancy updating the app but don't wanna go through all the hassles again-does this error sound pretty common or do you think it was a corrupted file and i should give it another go?And is 7.13 any better than wot i have cheers

As long as you have a Full Backup, I would try the upgrade again.

As to whether 7.13 is better than 6.50 I don't know, but I suspect it will allow you to do all the MapShare 'thingies' (a DennisN word Smile ) and certain other Enhancements.

You don't say which Map Version you have.

If you have a problem after updating, a Reset will often sort things out.

I helped a friend set up home and register her christmas present,it's a TT1 V3, her home account shows it as a 7xx series with map upgrade,should this be a cause for concern - it's a new unit from Halfords not 2nd hand.

You have nothing to worry about at all, if the device has version 705 mapping installed it needs a map update as the latest are 710 - if it has 710 mapping installed it is as upto date as you can get.

The map upgrade certificate is to let the owner have a free upgrade to the latest standard of map once the deivce is purchased, obviously a device sat on the shelf for a few months is not likely to have the most upto date software/ mapping, this is a way to ensure the user gets the latest for free. - Mike
