<p>BEFORE YOU START YOU WILL NEED AN SD CARD READER AND AN SD CARD, WHICH IS BIGGER THAN THE MAP YOU WANT TO INSTALL THE GREAT NEWS IS YOU CAN ALSO USE A MEMORY STICK OR ANYTHING YOU COMPUTER CAN READ, I USED A MEMORY STICK</p> <p>Ok people, As I was so stuck myself with this I thought I would try and help everyone with this, Now I do not have anything else such as a mobile phone or a handheld so I have no idea how to install on those, these instructions are just for the tomtom one, Mine is a 3rd edition. Please do not send me e-mails on how to install on anything else as I have no idea. ok so first thing to do is download the torrent, once its downloaded you will need to burn it off, you can do this with Nero or Magic iso or anything like that. ok you will also need a double-layer DVD, again in English this is a DVD that you can burn off just over 8gig on to, A normal 4.7gig disc is not big enough, I got mine from pc world, I think they also have them in staples. I have been told you can also use Daemon Tools, if you dont want to burn it to disc, but I have no idea how to use this so can give no help on it ok now as I only had a tomtom one, as soon as I put the burnt off disc into my drive clicked on the map I wanted which was France, it asked for a product code I was stuck here so this is what you need to do:</p> <p>1: Plug in your tomtom one (might work with other tomtoms but not tried) do not update tomtom home, if it asks just close everything so youre back to an empty desktop 2: put in your nice new DVD disc of the maps you burnt off and you will now get your setup screen</p> <p>Install tomtom home as it asks but do not update it; there should be an option for you to just install it without updating it. I have not tested this on an up to date version on tomtom home so this is why I ask you not to update it 3: ok now thats done you should have version 1.1 of tomtom home installed, you can check by clicking the red box in the top left of tom tom home</p> <p>4: ok now UN PLUG your tomtom from usb</p> <p>5: Plug in your memory stick</p> <p>6: Now look at the bottom of tomtom home there should be a tomtom pic called my devices , click on it</p> <p>7: it should have found your memory stick or sd card ect ect</p> <p>8: ok now you see it select it and click ok, you should get a list of sat navs pop up, just select yours, and mine being the tomtom one</p> <p>9: ok now thats done you should see your memory stick or sd card as a sat nav, in the top right of tomtom home</p> <p>10: ok now select the map you wish to install to your memory stick, I am going to pick the canary islands as they are only about 4 meg ! you should see a little grey spot in the box to show you have selected it</p> <p>11: Ok now click the big green install button. When its installed to your memory stick you should see it in the top right</p> <p>12: ok , now what you need to do is copy the map you installed to your desktop from your memory stick. so open the memory stick by going to my computer and selecting it, you should now see your map</p> <p>13: ok now I did not use the 2 files, I only used the map its self called Canary Islands, so just drag it to your desktop off the memory stick, and it should copy it to your desktop 14: ok Now plug in your tomtom again, close everything down so you just can see your desktop 15: ok goto my computer find your tomtom and right click on it and goto explore</p> <p>16: ok as soon as the window opens, drag your map from the desktop to your tomtom window which you just opened, and it will copy to your tomtom one</p> <p>18: ok now you have the map on your tomtom, UN PLUG your tomtom again, you will now need to crack the map so its activated, to do this you will need to download the tomtom crack from below: 19: ok now you have the crack to need unzip it, using winrar or winzip or whatever you use, you should be left with 2 files</p> <p>20: ok just move this window to the right and goto: my computer C Drive Now drag your map you put on the desktop to your C drive you should now see it there</p> <p>21: ok now that is in your C Drive open the folder called Canary Islands ( or whatever map you used ) so you can see your map files make sure its in the C Drive !</p> <p>22.
