It sounds like you have lost the operating system or the flash memory card has gone bad. Make sure your unit is fully charged and try again. Then connect your device to your computer. If it comes up in my computer right click the drive and check properties to see how much space is availiable on the drive. If it says 0 the flash has gone bad, I have a 20 series tt that this happened to. My solution was to insert a sd card (at least 2 gb.) into the sd card slot found under the sticker no sd card requaired on the bottom of the tt. TT home then installed the operating system but the downside is if you have not made a backup od your tt you will have to buy new maps (not cheap).
Hope this helps
blet, nafik, just push that small & stupid switch on the upper left, to top, on SD card. It will mean that you switched off "write protected" mode on you SD card ;) Or, make sure you have SanDisk make SD card ;)
The XLS which is not that much different and supports 4Gb as used in mine which allows me to keep maps of the US,Canada, UK, and the whole of europe on it and swap at will. I bought a cheap generic one. I do kow that those cards that use micro sd can and do have problems so best to avoid the micro type unless your device takes those specifically
I had similar problem this morning. Last time I was using my TT was about 3 mths ago and it worked fine. 2day I switched it on, the first screen appeard but the, TT just switched off. I put my friends SC card and it started... . Looks like soft on SD issue. I have a buckup file but at 87% it fails ... Lifes a ..... :D My advice is to download and install new soft on your SD card but what about maps U/me bought with the TT?? Have no idea
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.
I experienced the exactly same problem/symptoms with the backup restore function today. After installing the new firmware application on my TomTom Go 510, I did a new backup of my TomTom using the Home Application, I then attempted to "restore" that backup to two spare SD cards. The dialog box indicated "restoring," but nothing was being restored. My work-around, which worked great, was to locate the Backup Storage folder on my hard drive, and Drag & Drop its contents onto the spare SD cards (after erasing them).
I'm running the TomTom Home application (v 1.5.106) on an Intel iMac, OSX 10.4.10.
