TomTom is a GPS service used in different vehicles and other hand-held devices. A TomTom reads information off of saved maps and informs you of direct driving or walking instructions. These maps save on a removable memory card.
Because of this, it is possible to transfer the maps onto a different memory card and even upload the content to a different GPS device.
Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on your TomTom device. Connect the opposite end of the cable into any USB port on the computer system.
Click "Start," "Computer" and double-click the external device icon. This loads a window onto the screen, displaying all the saved maps currently stored on the TomTom GPS unit.
