When I plug my TomTom One into my Mac, the software crashes.

Tomtom can do better than this. Everytime I stick the card in it first says it is write protected when it isn't. After a couple of tries, it recognizes it. At least for the NB1, it's badly written, buggy and definitely not Mac like. You can't even add POIs from it. You have to manually copy them to the SD card. Asking for help seems to get you into a never ending cycle of nothingness.

This version works very well with my XLS IQ RoutesStable and does what it is supposed to do. Have not had problems for many years, just works. iMac 27" 2011 MacBook Pro 13" 2011
Maybe those having problems have other problems with their Macs causing the trouble?

I agree. I am using the TomTom software for the Mac already some years and didn't encounter any difficulties. It just works as it should work. So I suppose that those who encounter problems have installed anything else that is causing trouble.

Except for HP Scan, everything else works right on my Mac with Mavericks except for TomTom Home. I find it not very user friendly. I eventually get it to work, but not without false error messages. This software should be logical and easy to use for everything. Some things are easy, others impossible, once it recognizes the SD card.

TomTom = just another idiotic company with their eyes closed when it comes to the existence of the Mac computer and it's user base. I'm sure TomTom just like many other software companies, want to pretend that Mac's don't exist. The TomTom software is pathetic. Every update is worse than the update before it. Always problems. Takes forever to load etc... just pathetic. This latest release hasn't improved anything from what I can tell..

Takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to launch, hangs often, crashes often. I'm using it with a 920Go and a 950 Go Live and it takes a long time to see a device. Also, device selection window doesn't come to front unless you click on the icon in the dock or cycle through. It's as if they read the MS UI guidelines for having dialog boxes pop up behind the active windows.

Hey. my TomTom Go 530 kicks me out of TomTom home when I connect it. I never had a problem with it on my pc, but on the mac it just won't work. I have tried installing the above software - twice. Same problem. Any ideas?

This new version works perfectly with my TomTom N14644. :) The version from a few months ago was insanely buggy. Glad it's more stable now, thank you.

Since the version 2.6.x I had trouble with TomTom Home: The program always crashed when I tried to update my 920. I found that this was caused by a preference entry: The backup directory was on a network drive (volume). As soon as I changed it to the local harddisk it worked again. Hope this helps other people with the same problem.

Sorry, I mixed it up: I meant the "downloads" directory. TomTom Home looks into this directory, as soon as the update function is launched.

This fixed my problem! Thanks for taking the time to post, this was frustrating as hell! Too bad TomTom could not clarify this.

THANK YOU!

I have been unable to use this software for about 6 months until I read your comment. My TOMTOM Files were on a different hard disk partition, and it would crash without fail everytime it read from the device.

Following your advice, I set the TOMTOM Files back to the boot partition, and now it's working perfectly again.

Thanks!

I was thinking about buying the new TomTom Rider for my motorcycle. But according to their website it looks like you can't make you own pre-planned routes with the Mac version of TomTom Home software. This is a Windows only feature. This is the number one feature I want for my GPS. I ended up buying the Garmin Zumo. There is excellent route creation software for the Mac with Garmin's "RoadTrip" software.

TomTom: my trouble started with a usa map download, paid for, it would not work. TomTom support said it was the wrong type and I bought another version, with refund for the first. Then TomTomHome refused to recognise my device and despite lengthy help from support over more than 2 months, it will not "update" my account which still has my map waiting for me. The promised device /account update today just froze the screen after a lengthy download. The device software upgrade has lost my compass on screen although the main functions of the Go 720 still work OK. Apparently if I buy a second TomTom, I will have to use a different account with a different email address, (!). Is this just because I use Mac?

The newest version of HOME for TomTom One is useless. It will render updates impossible and continually send you an error message when you try to use it with your GPS.

TomTom technical support is equally useless, and clueless. They have no idea how to fix the problem and will only tell you to reinstall the application. I asked for an older version and they sent me a link to a Window .exe file. As I said, useless and clueless.

So, like many others I'm stuck with a unit that has outdated maps with no solution.

Well, there is one: Dump TomTom and get a Garmin.

TomTom is hemorrhaging customers and it's easy to see why.

Yay! new version, 2.2.1.26! Boo Hiss - it doesn't work any better. Still no support for operating my Tomtom One LE via Tomtom Home. Now, rather than explaining that it doesn't work, it just gives the spinning beachball of death, requiring a force quit.

Still no mapshare updates either...

And did anyone else notice that the program is so poorly designed that "HELP" appears TWICE in the menu-bar? Top notch developing this is!
