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

PC - dies no power, but comes to life after a few days if left unplugged. Then it works and at somepoint dies again (no fans, power, etc) How do I fix?

My first thought would be that it is a power supply problem. But, before replacing the power supply, unplug the power cord from computer and wall plug, plug it in a gain making sure it goes in all the way.
If still flaky, its probably a power supply problem.
Hope it helps.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My dimension 4600c wont always read discs

sounds as though you need a new CD drive, the optics in your drive are not working correctly.

CD drives are available for cheap at any computer store or consumer electronics store.

very easy to replace, 4 screws hold it in, and plug in the cables to the new drive from the old one. please dont forget to rate!

2001 Xterra - Replaced fuel pump twice and is still not running.

I am no expert, but I just had a similar problem. The car would shake and buck when accelerating. It finally just died and would not start. After sitting for some time, the car would start and run a while, then do the same thing. I thought fuel pump. The dealer diagnosed distributor. After replacing, the car is running perfect. Something to think about. Good luck.
