TomTom 300 not charging

I turned my 300 on, placed it on the car mount, it turned off and would not turn back on. I thought it needed charging but when I try the charge light does not come on. Thinking it might be my car charger I purchased a new home charger. The charging light is not on when connected to either the car or house. I have also left it charging in the car overnight to no avail. I did notice that after I pushed the reset and then tried to turn the unit on there was a small flicker of green on the indicator light. This won't happen again until I reset the unit again.

SOURCE: GPS Won't Turn On

My 510 was doing the exact same thing.
I called customer support and they helped me get it working again.
866-486-6866 is the number but here is what they had me do.
I had to push down the reset button for 15 seconds (the reset is in a small cut out near where you plug in the charger on the bottom.you will need to use a pin and you will feel the pin push in the button if you have it in the right spot.)
Then release the reset and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. the screen should come right back on.
If you need more help I suggest calling the 866# they are very helpful.

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?


It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

My tom tom 300 won't charge in the car and seems to drain quickly when on the mount. Do the charging mounts go bad?


Every piece of equipment fails at one point or another. Wear and Tear. The problem may be the battery or the charger. Try charging it at a USB port of a computer if you have the cable.
As to draining, you can enact battery power saving features on your unit.

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on


My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

What do you use to charge the tom tom 910 in the house


In the box you have a 'desktop' mount. Looks like the windscreen mount without the ******.
Also you will have got a mains power lead.
Plug the lead into the 'desktop mount' (Left hand side) of the stick up bit.
Plug in and put your 910 onto the mount. It will 'Click' into place
The green light will shine to show it's charging.

To release the unit from the mount PRESS in the button in the middle of the screen top rim and lift off.

Remember to turn of the power at the socket to stop wasting electricity

The usb part of the desktop mount goes into your pc so you can connect to TomTom home or just plain old 'back it up'
It is ok to have power switched on or off when connect to the pc, there is no need to unplug the jackplug.

Hope this helps

My tom tom go 300


Your tom tom go 300 may be frozen. If it has a reset button, then try resetting it. If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged and let it die. Then try turning it back on and see if it works then. If it doesn't, then you might have to update the software using this website which has instructions: http://www.bashys-place.com/forums/showthread.php?p=14685

Battery will not hold charge on tomtom 300


TomTom will not service tomtoms out of the warranty period. I tried them and they dont . They say / argue that there are many companies offering service . I would suggest that the battery is user replaceable with a little bit of DIY knowledge. You need the correct screwdrivers whicth are Torx type. You can buy them cheaply in sets from size T5 up to T20. First remove screen surround by pushing the windscreen mount clip underneath the tomtom , towards the screen. This will push the surrounf out enough for you to grab the bottom of it and pull it off. Next unscrew the 4 torx screws located in 4 holes around the screen. Next , extract the tomtom 'innards' by easing the assembley out of the front of the case. Next , unscrew the 2 torx screws that hold the speaker in place. Next , remove the 2 smaller torx screws UNDER the speaker. This will then allow removal of the plastic clamp that holds the cylinder shaped battery in place.NEXT , unplug the battery ( theres 3 wires go to a little plug on the circuit board ) and withdraw it through the gap left by the speaker. Fit NEW BATTERY ( available off ebay ) and reassemble in reverse order. Of course all this should be done very carefully. DO NOT RUSH. Work on a clear bench and put something soft on the bench to protect the tomtom. DO NOT force anything , it should all come apart easily. If you are unsure , inexperienced at messing with fiddly things or just plain nervous then get someone else to do it.

My tomtom does not turn on


Contact TomTom. They were helpful to me.
Suggest u monitor battery and get it charged up. Then reset. See if you can reproduce the problem.
They sent me an email with instructions on how to format the disk or card, then reinstall the software. Then they authorized me a new map download (don't format the disk until they assure you that you can have a new map). Perhaps it's also best to  use TomTom Home software on your computer to backup the files on the TomTom incase something goes wrong.
