How update the Carminat TomTom?

Like any GPS it is important to update the system (the software) but also the map that uses the GPS to guide.

To update, you must eject the SD card correctly in the GPS options so that you can remove the SD card and connect it to your computer. TomTom Home software will then need to be used to update.




To update your Carminat, follow these steps:

    1. From the Main Menu on your Carminat TomTom, select Remove SD card.
    2. Wait until the message You can now safely remove your SD card is displayed.
    3. Remove the SD card from your Carminat TomTom.
    4. Insert the SD card into the card reader connected to your computer.
    5. If you have not yet installed TomTom HOME on your computer, you can download it here:

  1. If HOME does not automatically check for updates, click Update my device in the HOME menu.Image
    Note: if you would like to install an application you downloaded previously, click Add Traffic, Voices, Speed Cameras etc. > Items on my computer.

  6. Switch on the ignition in your vehicle.
  7. Several screens are displayed. When prompted, confirm the installation by clicking Yes.The installation takes approximately 2 minutes.
    When finished, the Carminat TomTom restarts automatically.
  8. The first part of the update is now complete. You now need to repeat the steps 1-9 to download the update to the Danger Zones service for maps including France, at no additional cost.
