You just need the updated Tom Tom software. When installing it will automatically detect the older version and install over it.

The best option though is to first uninstall the older version and then install the new one.

As for the e-mail notifications, I just saw a service like this a couple of days ago. You might want to search via Google though (or if someone else knows, please post here).

That's because it's early here in New Zealand - just checking my daily e-mails...

Anyway you have to contact Tom Tom to get an update - it may have a cost involved, in general companies provide a free upgrade from a single version update, but it looks like your may be more than one because of the three years.

For the calendar notification via e-mail, look for "calendar email notification" on Google.

When a hard reset is performed the Pocket PC is restored to the original settings -i.e everything is cleared from its memory and the OS is resintalled for initial use. After a hard reset you need to reinstall any third party programs.

If you have Tom Tom already on your PC simply connect the Pocket PC, open ActiveSync on the computer and click on Tools | Add/Remove Programs. Select the program you want to install and check the box, then click Ok.

If you don't have the program in the list then you have to run the installation file again on your computer, while your Pocket PC is connected.
