    1) Copy paste your old mapsettings.cfg file from the old map folder into the new map folder. Overwrite when prompted.
    2) Run TomTom HOME and go to the "Operate" function
    3) In the menu, add a new Favorite - any favorite (you can always delete this later).
    4) Reboot. Test.

    The above procedure saves the mapsettings.cfg in the correct format. It is often the solution to many rebooting or freezing problems.

    If you can't get into the Operate function in HOME, then you need to patch HOME with FastActivate Premium Edition.
