Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tom Tom 1 Not charging.

Think fault is a poor connection inside the unit with the male pin that the female charging lead attaches to. I have used 3 different leads. When I use a new lead the unit charges better for a few days then fails again(intermittantly). If I apply pressure eg use rubber bands to pull the Male pin and female lead together this helps-but it's hardly charging at all now.In fact it will not stay on. Does the male pin need a soldering job doing? thankyou in anticipation.

I have had the same problem.
after carefully dismantling the unit I resoldered the connections to the power plug.( using a fine tipped soldering iron) I did this on both sides of the pcb.
Although the joints did not look to bad after re soldering and reassembly the unit has performed faultlesly ever since.
As you have to disconnect some sockets and remove pcb,s to do the job properly its best done by someone competent in this sort of work.
One thing to note that caught me out, make sure the lead from the internal antenna is connected as you put the unit back together

1) You need to download and install TomTom Home on your PC/Laptop: see attached official TomTom link:
http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16

2) You will then need to connect your GPS unit via the provided USB cable to your PC/Laptop withTomTom Home running and connected to the internet.

3) Your current MAP can then be updated via the 'Update' selection. Any other 'system' files will also be updated automatically using this function.

4) Using TomTom Home, you can also download free add-ons such as 'Voices' and 'Colors schemes'.

If you just bought the unit within 3 months, you can update to the latest Map free of charge using 'Latest Map Guarantee' function in TomTom Home otherwise, there are NO FREE ADDITIONAL FREE MAPS.

My Tom Tom One unit works OK but I cannot get any sound. There is a red cross on the Turn Off Sound but I cannot change it. When I try it flags 'You did not select a usable voice.'


You have not set a (male or female) voice to be used by your Tomtom One device:
use 'Change preferences' -> use Right arrow to get second creen for your preference 2 of 5 -> 'Change voie' -> scroll to 'select a voice' -> Click 'Test' to hear selected voice sample dialog -> Finally, click 'Select' when you are happy with the selected voice.
If you need additional voices, use TomTom Home to download them.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

My tomtom will not turn on. I have had it plugged into the car charger for several hours. Help?


try a reset first, i will assume you cant do this, get a clip or pin switch off the unit and remove the sd card, then push the tool into the small reset hole underneath and hold for 15 seconds, then turn your unit back on and replace the sd card, it should then work if not it could be the battery has worn out as they are attached to the charger all the time when driving, hope this helps

Garmin 650 won't hold charge in car -- same problem


Check power at the 12volt outlet to insure that you power is on at the connection. Try using a 12 volt convertor in the house to check the cord used in the vehicle.

Have tomtom sat navs got built in memory if so how do you get back in to read them


Connect your Tom Tom using the supplied USB lead. The lead is a USB 'A' lead to USB Mini 'B' lead.

Once you have connected the Tom Tom the unit will ask if you wish to connect to the computer and you press Yes. The unit then appears as another drive if you double click on My Computer.

BE VERY CAREFUL not to delete or alter any files on the Tom Tom unit unless you know exactly what you are doing otherwise it could result in the Tom Tom unit not working any more.

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520


Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

Tomtom rider 1 not charging when on bike


TOMTOM are VERY aware of this problem. but deny it is an issue!
I had the same problem, they sent me a new shoe after weeks of emails. I told them that the shoe is not the problem, it's the connector on the back of the TT1. Because of the springloaded pins fitted to the shoe and the poor quality connectors on the TT the normal vibration on a motorcycle causes the pins to wear holes in the connectors on the TT causing intermittant connection.
As the cost of repairing or replacing these connectors is very high and there are a large number of units that would require this repair TT are ignoring it.
I'm now looking at a way of bypassing the connector altogether.
A temporary solution appears to be to smear the contacts on the back of the rider with a little petroleum grease or WD40 - seems to work for a couple of weeks at a time.

This problem can have several causes.
  1. A component fault on the units internal antenna circuit board.
  2. ribbon cable has become detatched inside that connects antenna board with main circuit board.
  3. A software fault.
  4. A component fault on the processor board.
All the above except number 3 will require proffessional investigation. if its a software fault then you may be able to recover data by a re-install through TomTom Home or by recovery backup ( you did make a backup of your SD card , didn't you ? ) of your SD card.

Speaking the names of major streets


It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.
