Fixing the TomTom Rider 0:00 problem

— Posted in Overig by

Another very quick post. It occurred to me that my old TomTom, after dusting it off, did not retain time. I could set the correct time, and within minutes, it would switch back to 0:00. Very annoying, of course, but there is a fix. I did not create it, but I'd like to share it.

It solved the problem for my TomTom Rider Urban/Pro, and I hope it'll help others too.

Importing GPX files on a TomTom Rider Urban/Pro (Mac, Windows)

— Posted in Overig by

As I was searching for software to import GPX routes to my old TomTom Rider (2010-ish), I found myself at a loss: none of the software for a Mac seemed to work, and I do not have a Windows machine at my disposal. The solution proved simpler than I thought, and it does not require any additional software. I'll outline the steps below.

  1. Connect you device to your computer (Mac, Windows) using a USB cable.
  2. Open the device/drive called 'Internal'.
  3. Copy your GPX file(s) to the (existing) folder called 'gpx2itn'.
  4. Disconnect your device from your computer and let it reboot.
  5. Now, if you plan a new route, and navigate to options and 'load route', you'll see the GPX file you copied.
  6. Done.

This is more of a reminder for myself, but if anyone finds this useful, that's even better!
