Tom Tom does not offer them from the factory accept under a repair performed from the factory.
I will list some places I found that you can order from though. Make sure to keep the connector off your old speaker as the connectors are not universal and often do not accompany a new speaker. The speaker, however, is pretty universal.
Remove the two #5 torx screws under the label, using a butter knife or similar and starting near the screw hole side, slide the knife under the front bezel and pop it off the back. Push small white connector clamp towards ribbon cable on back half and the cable will slide out. The two halves are now separated. Remove three screws and remove circuit board. Wiggle and pull out the battery connector. Slide butter knife under battery and pry loose from the sticky tape. Voids any warranty!
Question i have to ask is 1- how much do you kno9w about electronics and 2- how brave are you. The following WILL void your warranty if you still have one. READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE YOU EVEN START 1- Based on a poor picture of the unit that i found it looks like two screws in the back of the unit need to come out, might be four screws in there but pic only shows two. 2- With your small precision flat screwdriver push under the seam in the plastic and gently pry the two halves of the case apart, be careful as these units have snap taps under the plastic that you can't see till you get it apart. 3- DO NOT PULL ON THE TWO HALVES OF THE CASE YET. Look under the back of the case since the picture shows what looks like a button or a speaker in the back, this means wires running to something on the back half of the case, Look and see what it is and see if you can find the connectors to these things, should be small white connectors that you will have to GENTLY pull out of the connection bed. 4- Now that you have done that you should see something that looks like a cell phone battery, that's your prize, again look for the connector and gently remove from the connection. 5- replace with new battery and reverse order to install and reassemble your gps device. Hope this helps
you could just have a defective charge cable. take tom tom with when you go to purchase new charger and ask it you can test before you buy to see if it is truely the cable. That is probaly all it is. if not you could possibly have a defective tom tom but I really just think its just the cable.
You need to plug your TOM TOM into a PC with Internet connection and go to the tomtom web site: www.tomtom.com
You will need a usb cable that has the "mini" usb standard connector that plugs into the TOM TOM unit. It should update automatically, but you will need a TomTom Home account (free) created. Then you can download the latest updates that should clear up the power issues. Otherwise, get a new power cord as they do wear out with daily use.
The solution to this is quite simple. Buy a new Tom Tom.
The Tom Tom units are not serviceable items. It's silly and quite honestly inexperienced of you to think they are.
If it's still under warrenty, MAYBE Tom Tom would replace the unit free of charge . But don't hold your breath. As a cracked screen wouldn't be under the fair wear and tear usage policy. So I'm afraid it's a case of dusting those cobwebs out of your wallet.
The strange thing about your question is why open up the tom tom in the first place ?
You can't possibly have a replacement screen!
Your either 11 years old or a very strange person.
Have you gone to the tom-tom web site and downloaded the Tom Tom home? If not I would recommend that first. There are many upgrades and additions there. But I do not believe you can update the 300 without being connected to your computer via usb cable and being on the tom tom site with tom tom home downloaded.
Hope this helps
If the problem exists both when you use the vehicle power connector and the usb cable to your computer, then you have to assume that the problem is with the socket on the One. If it's still in warranty, I would send it back to Tom Tom for repair. Contact customer support for repair information.
To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay). Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.
