Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

TomTom One Second Ed. died

It's about 16 - 18 months old. worked great until a few days ago I tryed to learn more about it. Put the CD in the computer and it said plug the TomTom in also. Well winthin a few seconds the tomtom went to a screen flashing the dreaded red X. --- computer says "NOT FORMATED"
I tried many things - finaly tried to reformat - Windows says it can't format.
Propertys shows the chip full. - No free space.
How can I format the internal chip? - Can I use a plugin chip and restore it? I am prepaired to get (buy) a 1GB SD chip if you think that will work.

I've done it!
I had exactly the same problem, device appeared full although nothing was inside, I tried to format it using the properties tab in windows -no good-, then using the dos prompt -no good again-.
How I fixed it? I formatted it with the properties function in windows, the only thing that changed from the previous attempt was only plugging the device in a different usb port, and without using any extension lead. I can't explain why it worked, but it did the trick for me, so good luck if you want to try.

PS: afterthat I re-installed the operating system as per tomtom online support. Unfortunately I lost my map (that's what I'm trying to sort out next) but at least I got rid of that hideous white cross on red circle

Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

Tomtom one xl freezing on start up screen


OK... I found an amature solution;

- Do a soft reset of the system, with the paperclip (see tomtom site)
- Put the device on the docking station and connect it to power as well as to your computer. While it's turned off
- Turn on the TOMTOM while connected to the computer
- Start the TOMTOM Home software
- And it made connection again
- Disconnect the device via the software
- Take the device out of the docking station
- Turn it off and on once

This worked for me, my next step would have been the support desk. Grtz Derk

Tomtom 3rd edition


I think it has to do with hooking up your unit via the usb cable to the computer. I got one from Radio Shack and it worked fine for a day, drove with it and shut it on and off a couple of times. Then I hooked it up to my emachine computer, and all I got was a white screen. Took it back got another one, drove with it, turned it on and off a couple of times, worked fine. Then I hooked it up to my computer, and again the same white screen until I reset it. I noticed all these posts are in the last few days, so I would say it is a bad batch of units. I purchased one for my wife 3 weeks ago and no such problem.

What is happening is your map updates are being copied onto your memory card without overwriting the old maps hence you are running out of memory.

In the tomtom home browser you should be able to delete your old map before installing the new one. Make sure you have a back up of the map card before you try this though so you can reinstall if something goes wrong.

Also have you replaced the voice prompts on your tomtom? The voice files take up a lot of memory so if you have put new ones one without removing the old ones you will be wasting memory.

There is one window in TThome that lists eveything installed on yuor card so have a good look at this and see what you can get rid of.
