MapShare technology allows you to make changes to the map on your navigation device or to report map changes online. Many of the changes made on your device instantly improve your routing and they can also be shared with the MapShare community of 21 million people.
To make changes to your map and share these changes with other MapShare users, tap Browse Map in the Main menu. Select the street you want to report, then tap the MapShare icon at the bottom of the screen.
Changes to the map are reported by MapShare users. Some are shared with other community members immediately and some are verified by TomTom.
TomTom MapShare is automatically enabled when you start the Navigation app and a welcome message is displayed.
If you want to stop using MapShare, tap Change Settings in the Main menu, then Advanced. Adjust the MapShare setting to turn MapShare off or on.
Note: When this setting is adjusted the map is reloaded so that map corrections can be applied or removed. This may take several seconds.
After the welcome message, you are asked if you want to download any map changes that are available from other TomTom users. MapShare then checks for new changes on a daily basis.
Tip: The size of the download for the map corrections is shown.
To change your download settings, do the following:
