Please search for other posts regarding this from posted by "homemender" . You will have blown U24 and U25 IC's inside. Its not possible to replace these by normal soldering methods as the components are micro small .

Can I download another language for my tomtom xl


Hi.

There are several ways to change the language settings on the TomTom One.

If you do a reset using the reset hole, after restarting the TomTom, you will get again the initial setup page. Page 8 will ask you which one is your favorite language for using the TT.

Another way to change TT language is using TT menu to change language. You can follow the step by step instructions given on this page. Click here to open the link.

Regards.

Just got my TTone, confused about when to use the charger


To avoid an eventual loss of power while you are driving and the subsequent unsafe fumbling with the machine, you can plug the TT in the cigarette lighter during your ride. This will supply power to the GPS and recharge the battery.
Alternatively, before going on a trip plug the TT in a USB port of a computer and it will recharge the battery. With a fully charged battery and the car power adapter/battery charger you will not run out of power.

Tomtom wont come on


More than likely the negative post on your 910 is not making a contact. This is a known problem for the X10 series tt's. It can be fixed but you have to disassemble the tt to do it. No just replacing the battery won't fix your problem. If it was just a battery problem your tt would still boot up if connected to external power.

I was trying to rechatge my tomtom and i cannot


You don't say what kind of tt you have but most have a reset hole on the bottom of the device. Take a paperclip and straighten one side out. Insert the paperclip into the reset hole and hold it for at least fifteen seconds. Your tt should start normally after that. If it doesn't start up you may have the green light of death and nothing you do will get it going again.
Hope this helps

My TomTom 510 will not hold charge and now cannot be switched on


If you are not bothered about using it on battery your tt should work if you have it hooked up to a external power supply such as the car charger or home charger. If it doesn't work using either of the power supplies then your problem is deeper than just needing a new battery. Check the pins on the bottom of your tt to see if they are bent, or out of place. The most common problem for them is the negative pin on the far left with the lcd screen facing away from you gets bent or is not making contact even though the green light is on.
Hope this helps

Unable to change symbol on tomtom 920 sat navigation.


using TT home check that you still have the symbol you want installed on the TT. I had a similar problem where it would seem to forget what I had choosen on occasion and sometimes I had to use TT home to check and re-install. problem itself seemed to just go away. (Guess it got sick of me telling it LOL)

Does car lighter plug have a fuse (no power)


I'm assuming you own a TT.. in which case, yes.. the CLA should have a fuse. I wouldn't recommend replacing the fuse yourself in case you get the amps wrong and burn out your TT. check that the green light on the CLA comes on.. if not, then you probably don't have the CLA in right. Otherwise, you can purchase a replacement TomTom CLA online somewhere.

TT Home does not recognise connection


You definitely need software and maps on an SD card. The TOMTOM will not work without a card inserted. The card will contain MAPS , Map authorisation codes ( to show they are genuine TOMTOM maps bought and paid for ) , POI ( points of interest ), GPS fix data , voices ( for spoken navigation ) etc etc etc. ....................
PLEASE NOTE , TRYING A CARD FROM ANOTHER TOMTOM is very unlikely to work. Each card has an authorisation code that is generated via an algorithm inside each TOMTOM and is device specific.
However , trying a card from another tomtom might produce a diferrent result but still not work , at least this might prove that the tomtom is working OK before you rush out and buy a tomtom card.

Tomtom troubleshooting


My daughter had this problem and it actually turned out to be the cigarette lighter connection. The fuse needed changing and bingo all working well now! Check you have a green light on the charger cable going into your cigarette lighter - if you dont its probably the fuse.
