I have gone around this problem by removing the internal battery, and soldering a female power connector to it.I now it on 3 aa batteries, alkaline cells givbe me an autonomy of about an hour, maybe duracells will give a bit more duration.

When i have time ,I will work on splicing the wires on the cigar plug adaptor and use that as a permanent power source. The wires for the Lipo cell are Red positive, solder this to the yellow wire( probably a battery gauge wire) and black ground.

Hope this helps

Very poor workmanship from TOMTOM

TomTom Rider unit wont charge. Tried mains charger, USB connector and bike charger. Swapped out the battery and the unit boots up but that is just the charge in the new battery. Any help appreciated.


Power board is faulty, repair or replace. Workshop repair required. Oh, stop plugging a charger into the USB socket. It doesn'tlike it, thats for data transfer only. The round pin socket is the charger port

Unit wont turn on


Check the power connector on the unit, over time the solder joints work loose and then the unit cant get power and you will just get a black screen. You may need to remove the PCB and look at the back inside bit of the USB socket. Hope this helps

Tomtomxl340s won't start when plugged into car


Sounds like you have a broken charger, USB port or logic board. Try a different charger, inspect the usb port if it is loose. If both is not the issue, it's your logic board. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.

How do I charge the TomTom XL 330


Hi There!

You Can charge your Tomtom when you drive, or you can charge it with a USB port on your computer.
I don't think they come with a mains charger anymore?

Require value of D5


TomTom One uses a Linear Technologies chip LTC3455 as a USB/charger power controller. See http://cds.linear.com/docs/Datasheet/3455fc.pdf. This chip is susceptible to high transient voltages that result from resonances created by parasitic inductances and capacitances of the USB/in-car charger cable . Good designs using this chip suggest that a 1 ohm resistance be put in the path of the cable to reduce the Q of the resonance and hence transient voltages. A 6V Zener diode D5 also serves to protect the chip from these transients.
If the Zener diode is blown it is most likely the the LTC3455 chip is gone as well. You can replace the chip which costs £5.00 (located in the shielded portion of the PCB). The recommended Zener Diodes for this chip are either the EDZ5.6B or EDZ6.2B manufactured by ROHM (http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz5.6b.pdf or http://www.rohm.com/products/databook/di/pdf/edz6.2b.pdf). These can be used to replace D5. The STMicroeletronics SM2T6V8A can also be used to replace D5 (http://www.st.com/stonline/products/literature/ds/8694/sm2t.pdf). All the Zeners cost a modest £0.22. I hope this is helpful.

Charging tomtom XL GPS


Hi Jill,

It all depends on your computer. The charging current via USB is limited by the computer. Some restrict this to 500mA, others (lap-tops mainly) to 200mA. If the TomTom is turned off, you should get the battery charged in 3 to 6 hours. With the unit on, it can take many times longer as the unit will take almost 200mA from the battery.
