We recommend taking the following into consideration before downloading any large updates, for example a new map.
We highly recommend using a network (Ethernet) cable to make a direct connection between your computer and the internet modem. A wireless internet connection can be used, but this can be subject to interference which can result in a slow or failed download.
The TomTom software will list the size of the update(s) before you start the download. The table below shows the estimated time to download each file size compared to the internet connection speed. The bigger the file the longer it will take to download. If the speed of your internet connection is listed as ‘Not Recommended’ for the size of the file you want to download, try a location that has a faster internet connection.
Tip: There are many websites that can test the speed of your internet connection. The table below refers to the download speed.
