Hi,

Had exactly the same prob on mine. The reset button is at the back of the unit, underneath the top, above and to the right of the dock connector.

Best way to see it is to hold the tomtom upside down with the screen facing towards you. Find the dock connector (circular connection at one end, with a row of pins to it's right), look above and you'll see a cut out with a pin hole in it.

In the age old tradition, an unfolded paperclip is the weapon of choice here. Place the paperclip in the hole and that's the reset button.

Here's a pic I found on www.tomtomforums.com (posted by Pedro2NR)

You do not have to remove the memory card but I would just for the fact that I would be re-seating the card and taking a diagnostic step above and beyond the call of duty.and if something is wrong with card and by coincidence it happened just as you reset the system, I would not be the object of your thoughts as a target to be practiced upon at that time.
You will find the memory card just under the TomTom logo on the front of the unit.
The reset button is a function listed in settings as a tool to Reset TomTom back to factory settings.
This process is referred to as a soft-key.

Problem with my tomtom go 910, was working perfectly until i went on vacation for five weeks. Went to use it and could not switch it on so i thought the battery must be low, so i was going out in the car...


1. Connect the GO to your home charger and charge it for at least two hours. You need to charge your ONE or GO300 for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter in your car.
2. Check if the green light on your GO lights up when connected to power (RIDER does not have this light).
3. Leave your GO connected to the power cable and RESET it using a straightened paper clip
4. Press the ON/OFF button for at least 3 seconds.


To reset your TomTom device:
1. Charge your device.
Charge your device for at least 2 hours. Make sure the charging light on your device is on (except RIDER which has no charging light).

2. Remove the SD card.
If your device uses an SD card, remove it.
3. Reset your device.
Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button. For a visual representation of the reset button, see below.
4. Turn your device on.
Press and hold the On/Off button for at least 4 full seconds.
5. Insert the SD card.
If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.
Always make sure that you are using the latest version of the TomTom application on your device. You can update the application through TomTom HOME. If you use more than one storage card you need to update the application on each card.

It sits in the dock with green light on but wont turn on. TomTom 910.


I'm presuming that it use to turn on,yes? try doing a soft reset by removing it from the dock and turning it over and removing the sd card (if you have one installed), and then, using a straightened paper clip or straight pin, locate the reset hole (about 1" to the left of the sd card slot) and push it for about 15 seconds. Hopefully after that you will be able to turn the unit on. If that doesn't work, you'll have to call tech support.

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of


If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.
      tomtomgox10.jpg
    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.
      tomtomgox00.jpg
    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).
      tomtomone.jpg
    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.

  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

Tomtom go 910


I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )
