I have a tom tom xl 30 series and it worked fine, had it for over 3 years so decided to update it, what a mistake.

Followed all the instructions did a back up, downloaded the update and then all I got was a red cross. I then followed the info to correct this, format the tom tom and reinstall and now I only get as far as install on the hard drive, gets half way and then I get error messages.This is the error:-

ERROR: HomeBase/IO: Error writing file: H:\data.chk

@ .\portable\cfile.cpp(1953)


in .\portable\cfile.cpp:1953


  1. chrome://tthome/content/ui/bindings/commit.js:82

  2. chrome://tthome/content/ui/bindings/ttwizard.xml:1?061

                                    this._commitFailed(i, commitPage);
  3. chrome://tthome/content/logic/util.js:80

            return func.apply(obj, arguments);
  4. chrome://tthome/content/logic/dllUtils.js:77

  5. chrome://tthome/content/logic/dllUtils.js:69


this happens everytime, when i turn tom tom off and back on again it checks for errors and then says update required and goes and does the same again, anyone got any ideas please .

The header 'Help please' is no good, as it does not say anything about your problem (look at other headers).

Can you restore the backup?. You may then be able to download the update again.

If you are stuck, go to HALFORDS with the Tom-Tom as they provide an Update service (don't know cost).

There was an update for the 740 Live Go the other week that caused problems,I do not know if there is any connection with that update and yours. Call TomTom on 0845 161 0009. I found them very helpful.
