Hi,

You may have dust particles or similar trapped under the touch membrain. This would cause random selection and result in the problem your'e describing. It's often the case that small particles can be trapped just under the edges of the screen by getting under the screen surround( bezel ).

Another similar problem can also occur if the TomTom is left in a cold car overnight after a warm / hot day where moisture can form under the touch screen membrain. This moisture can move around making random inputs to the screen.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

My tom tom was stolen can it be located with gps?


No, a GPS device will only receive signals from the satellites in space. A GPS will never transmit any signal to the satellites because it's a one way communication.
If you have the serial number (you can find it on the device itself or on the box) you could go to the police and inform them your GPS was stolen and provide them your serial number. If you're lucky and the police finds a gang of thieves and they find lot's of stolen things, they will check the serial numbers through the police computer to check if they're not reported as stolen. Then there is a chance you will get your GPS back.

Update tom tom go 720 for free


You may be able to get "free" map updates from (illegal) underground sources. But that's not recommended.
Yes, you're right, you can simply get a new TomTom GPS and get the latest map(s) for it. Consider getting a TomTom with lifetime maps ....and you won't have to pay for any map updates.

Tom Tom Go 720 battery replacement - how do I do that.



Replacing the TomTom Go 720's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:

The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TOMTOM+GO+720&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Go 720 is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this Helps, aaron
