GPS: TomTom XL S IQ Routes







Post TT hack & restore

I have just bought a TT XL IQ routes, and would like to update the core (hack the unit). Obviously I'm a little nervous about invalidating the warranty. Is there some way of taking a flash of the current unit state so I can (attempt) to restore it if something goes wrong?

Smile Hi just plug in unit to usb, go to My Computer and look for TomTom, then select all - copy and paste to a new named folder. Hope this helps.

Exclamation Hi also meant to add - make sure on your computer all folders and files are visible as there are some hidden files

does this include the core/ firmware? I mean if I flash a new fimware to the unit and brick it, I'm not sure that just copying the folders back over will restore it, or is that enough?
Thanks for your help!

Hi, I have successfully done this several times with a TT Go 510, TT one and currently a TT Go 530.
Just make sure you copy all files including hidden ones. Obviously there is always a risk when flashing anything, but mine have all been successful!
Hope this helps you reach a decision, and good luck.
