Splash screen froze

When i turn my tomtom on it does not get past the splash screen and will not turn off by the on/off button.The only way to get rid of this is to reset it. I recently downloaded a new voice for it and this problem occured after the download.I have erased the new voice from my sd card but i still have the problem.Has anyone encountered this problem before?

I had the same problem. The problem is with the ad card not the unit. If you made a copy of the sd card before you altered it delete the card and reload it with the back up info.

Tomtom ONE XL doesnt go past start up screen


You may want to try operating your TomTom from TomTom Home. This has seemed to work for a lot of people who do not have backups, as you are connected to their site. Apparently, a file or two are updated, and you are back in business. Here's an example:

"Though not using a 720 my 500 wouldn't startup after upgrade to 7.16. Always stuck on the first splash screen.

After conncting to Home I chose Operate my Go and another file was downloaded. After this the device would boot up norammly when not connected to my PC.

Might be worth a try."

Start up screen


I had this same issue on my 930. You need to edit the bitmap with paint and make sure the dimensions are the exact same as the splash file. Rename the new splash screen with the same filename for the old startup screen and delete the old. That should fix it

You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

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.
