Your current map version can tell you if your map is up-to-date.
TomTom's latest map version is 8.75. Every quarter, we release a new map with road and data updates, that increases the map version with 0.05.
So, for example, if your map version is 8.65 (shown on your device as 865), your map is at least six months old and two new maps have been released since then.
To check your map version, do the following:
1. From the main menu, tap Settings.
2. Tap Status & Information.
3. Tap Version information.
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:
Connect your device to your internet-enabled PC and switch the device on. MyTomTom will check to see if there are any new maps available for you.
If there’s a new map available, just click ‘Get items’. If there’s a ‘Navigator Update’ showing, make sure you download this first.
(Tip: Be sure to untick the map and only download the Navigator Update first.)
Once the Navigator Update is complete, you can download your map. Click ‘Start downloading’; MyTomTom will download and install the map for you.
(Tip: Your device might switch off during download, but the download will continue. You can check its progress using the MyTomTom support application. Click the TomTom logo in bottom right of the screen for Windows and top right for Mac.)
Once complete, your MyTomTom support application status will read ‘Your navigation device is up to date’. You can now disconnect the device from your PC and set off knowing your map is the latest available.
