Hold the reset button until you see it start up again. If this does not work plug it into a power source via USB and then do another reset.

You need to reset it by using a paperclip and poking this into the reset hole on the bottom of the TomTom for 15 seconds. Worked for me.....

My tom tom will not come on. i was driving when my tom tom lost power.and will not come back on.


hi rlorton69

hook it up to your computer for a few hours via the usb cable...then try it again. your tomtom car charger is only a trickle charger, its meant to keep a charge on your tomtom, and wont charge it when its dead.

if it fails to start after you charge it via the usb cable, just post back with your specific model and ill help you further

Tom tom XL S- lost download no back up, touch screen does not appear to have any effect


Turn the unit upside down and locate a small hole labeled "RESET". Use the end of a paper clip to keep it pressed for 7 seconds and then release it. Try to turn on again. If this works, (using a usb cable) hook it up to a computer with internet access and download TomTom Home from here:

Click on the button labeled "UPDATE MY DEVICE"

Let me know how it goes so I can offer other possible solutions

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

Hook the Tomtom using the USB cable to your computer4.gif. You should see the Tomtom drive under My Computer as a drive letter.

Backup1.gif all data1.gif from the Tomtom to a folder on your computer. Now select the Tomtom drive and right click, select properties, select tools, and then Check now. Allow the computer to fix any problems with the Tomtom drive. Once this is completed. Remove the USB cable and do a reset. Now turn on your Tomtom and it should work.
