    I experienced exactly the same problem today. Maybe a coincidence but I downloaded the latest 7.900 of software yesterday and it hadn't happened before that.

    One time, swithcing off and on made no difference - the sound remained lost. Then another time, I just disconnected from the holder and reconnected and the sound came back.

    Whilst the problem's as described above, when the sound is gone, I've found that it isn't completely gone. If I touch the bottom right of the TomTom screen, the next instruction is read out as normal. Also, if the TomTom is disconnected from the windscreen and I use the "Demo" function, there is a voice there but it's a very very low, slow growling sound that's just audible.

    Fingers crossed, it seems to be okay for the moment but sadly I'm beginning to not trust it anymore.

Unfortunatly , I don't think your problem can be solved without further investigation as it is most likely that something is loose or possible you have a bad solder joint inside your tomtom. The vibrations when travelling are allowing the fault to manifest itself at that particular time. the fault is such that for a moment , the TomTom thinks it has been connected to a PC due to a small voltage spike caused by the faulty connection. Of course this is only my theory and not a definative diagnosis , This is why I think it will need proper investigation. However, it is also possible for the software or cetrain files to have a bug in it that can also show itself in this way on your particular device so if you made a backup of your tomtom hard drive some time earlier you could at least reload this backup to see if this cures your problem. So, if you are able to format and reinstall the files to your hard drive and this cures it , please me me know. .............. good luck.

How do I tell if my Tom Tom is charging on the computer. While on the computer charging I am unable to use the touch screen to see if battery is charging or full. How long should it take to charge on...


Plug the USB terminal into a port and when the unit asks you if you want to connect to the computer tap No. If your screen displays a status bar, tap in the middle of the bar and you will see a map of the last trip. The battery gage will appear on the top right corner, along with the satellites.

If you do not have an old itinerary stored, plan one in the neigbourhood so as to make the status bar appear and tap in the middle of it.

Dispite connecting and updating my tom tom 910


It is asking you IF you want to connect it to the computer. There is no problem with that. Every time you connect it to a USB port of a computer you are asked if you want to connect it to the computer. If you want to do so Tap Yes; if you don't, tap No. It will do what YOU ask it to do.

Frequent connections to a computer will ensure that your unit has the latest software updates, map corrections through MapShare.

My tomtom is 24% up to date. How do I update?


You need a Tom Tom USB Cradle that will allow you to connect your tom tom to a computer. Assuming you already have one, then just connect the Cradle to a working USB port on the computer, then with the computer turned on, plug your GPS into the cradle. It should come on automatically and ask you "Connect to Computer?" Just press Yes on the GPS screen and your GPS will attempt to talk with your computer. It will automatically download updates for your system software and any mapping corrections made by you of other users. If it does not automatically download updates, then you need to launch Tom Tom Home. Once this launches one of the first screens has a button titled "Update My GPS" Just touch this bitton, or click it with your mouse... and you will be away.

Have tomtom sat navs got built in memory if so how do you get back in to read them


Connect your Tom Tom using the supplied USB lead. The lead is a USB 'A' lead to USB Mini 'B' lead.

Once you have connected the Tom Tom the unit will ask if you wish to connect to the computer and you press Yes. The unit then appears as another drive if you double click on My Computer.

BE VERY CAREFUL not to delete or alter any files on the Tom Tom unit unless you know exactly what you are doing otherwise it could result in the Tom Tom unit not working any more.

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520


Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

I needs help about down'oading the software on my tomtom.i don't have a signal on the tomtom.


You need to connect the Tom Tom to the computer with a USB cable. If it is connected properly then it will ask Conect to the computer Yes / No. If you say Yes you can then use Tom Tom Home (supplied on the CD which came with the SatNav) to manage software / map downloads.

You don't need a satellite signal to download software / maps.
