Change the Value “XXXX-XXXX” to your value from the “DeviceUniqueID=” value you copied from your device and save the file , close it , then double click on it This should create a United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland-14.meta.dct in the same directory. Copy this file to the United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland_v720.1802 folder. Remove the USB lead and open the GPS Software from the GPS Button which will open TomTom. You will need to set the GPS device , by going into Change Preferences , GPS Signal , Configure , Choose “Other wired NMEA” , Leave the Baud rate , then Select Com 7

    im trying to follow your notes with a view to upgrading my “Foehn & Hirsch” Satnav program to read Tomtom 7. Im pretty good with computers but all the instructions ive found so far are beyond me except for yours! I had already downloaded tomtom7 files from somewhere else – pretty sure there similar. Im ok up to point where i have to copy the United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland_v720.1802 and mobilenavigator to the Memory Card but the files i have copied dont have a TTN7 folder – is this important and could the files from this directory be somewhere else.

    Im really struggling with this and im desparate to upload tomtom 7 onto my satnav which im told is turbodog maps?

    Can you email me back with either a download link which still works for your tomtom7 files or tell what I can do with my files – I have the UK/Ireland folder and the Mobilenavigator folder but no TTN7 on the files I d/loaded elsewhere – they did come with instructions but there so confusing and above me – there here: –

    http://www.thepctailor.com/pctforum/index.php?topic=1172.0

    I look forward to your help – email is best

    Hi,
    Thanks for the link and the detailed instructions. Worked like a charm first time. However wanted to place my files in a dedicated directory but the program struggled to find the maps. Using notepad changed the path in the file ‘CurrentMap’ and things breezed through.
    Thanks

    Before I start this Satnav program charge over. Do I need another GPS device ?
    Choose “Other wired NMEA” device. Do I need a – External Antenna ? to fit into the TMC port?

    Well the program charge over, went well. Your detailed instructions went well. I have not been able to Configure, the GPS device ” Other wired NMEA ” etc. Is not picking up a signal.

    Thanks for the great walk through. My navigo was driving me nuts (and usually the wrong way down one way streets) but now it is a tomtom I dont have to smash it to pieces after all. A truly worthless product made great. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Managed to get this working on my Sat Nav thanks, but for some reason i have to reset the device in order to turn it on, not sure if its just my device. Also when i go into Navigate to, the Home, Favourite and a few other features are greyed out? Do you know if this can be fixed?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I had to replace my memory card as it went faulty but this means i have lost all the files that were on it, can anyone help me get this running again as i can not find anywhere to download it. Maybe someone has a working memory card they would kindly make a copy of for me.

    Please let me know.
