Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

TomTom 720 On my third unit from retailer, been told not to use software/downloads as this is causing the problem. Have not connected this unit to the computer but after only using it for the third time all I get is the TomTom screen and the flashing red symbol, pressed reset nothing happens. Can you help?

Hi Robert,

Well first let me say I am sorry to hear you had these problems. Now its unfortunate that again you have a problem that sounds from you description is corrupted data.
Theres not much can be done unless you have made a backup of your TomTom to your PC as theres no way to restore the data / files to working condition other than using a backup. So, if you don't have a backup then it looks like you need to return your TomTom to retailer once again.

Can I suggest for you and any other TomTom users reading this. If you do get an NEW or exchange unit , before using it for the first time, connect to your PC and perform a backup of the files contained on it or on any removable media ( SD card and similar on some TomTom models ) this way if theres any problems in the future a reinstall of the backup might produce a solution.

Good luck

My computer will not acknowledge my tomtom go 720 is plugged in to usb connector power light is on in charging cradle but computer says not connected


I had the same problem. I tried uninstalling software and re-installing it. That did not help. I reset my TomTom Go 720 with the reset button on the bottom of the unit. The computer then recognized my TomTom.

Screen deactivated & a red circle with an 'X' flashing


First turn your firewall off (if you have one). You need to go into your 720 with the TomTom Home software and erase the downloaded software (with the remove items from my device) and reset the device (little reset button under the unit keep it pressed for 5 seconds), place it back in the cradle and restart your computer and than restart the 720 , bring the TomTom Home program up, and when the TomTom Home software in your computer restarts and detects the 720 it will tell you that you need to update the application, if it doesn't than you force the update by going to the add maps option, select items on my computer, select applications and press the add button, when done, go back and to device (option in top of your screen) and select disconnect device, restart your 720 and it should be back to life with the upgraded software.

Restarts unexpectedly and slow to start


The TomTom 520 and 720 are the same unit. the differance is the maps. The 520 has maps of the US and the 720 has maps of Europe. Download the free clearflash utility from TomTom and run it a couple of times. This should clear up your problem. Sometimes the mapset config in the map gets full and it has to be cleared.

I Have no CD-ROM for the Tomtom GO 720 I just purched.


The cd that normally comes with your TomTom is to load TomTom Home onto your computer, and maybe the owners manual, both of which you can download for free from TomTom.
