Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Power connection broken

My power connection is completely broken off from the circuit board, (left the car charging adaptor plug in and got smashed in my carry on luggage will traveling).
Is it worth getting repaired? It's about 3 years old. If so where can I send it?

Thanks,
Troy

To be honest you'd be better off upgrading. The ONE 130S is essentially the "4th Edition" of the ONE with a new mount AND text to speech. You'll get more bang for your buck with the new device and you'll have the most up to date maps with their latest map guarantee (if there are newer maps or a new set of maps come out within 30 days, you can upgrade for free)

I have a Motorola gps that fell and landed on the usb charger plug and broke the pin off the board. the battery is a sanyot0052 with 4 wires . Can you tell how i can charge this battery via the 4 wires so...


Don't try and charge the battery directly, as it is a lithium battery it can explode if not charged correctly.
You can try connecting (soldering) wires to the circuit board where the socket was connected to feed in 5V from the power adaptor or USB lead.

GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket


if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.

Meastro 4040 wont charge reliably


I had the same trouble exactly. The yellow power input socket has a pin and shield connection that must be contacting the center and side of the power input plug. I opened the Magellan and found that one side of the shield contact had never been soldered to the PC board. It was only a matter of time and use, before the piece moved up and away from the outer part of the power socket. A dot of solder solved the problem. The case for the Magellan is easily opened by removing four very small screws from the four corners of the black back and then prying the silver framed screen from the back exposing the printed circuit board. I am sure this completely voids the warranty with Magellan, but they will not repair out of warranty units anyway. Be aware there is a connector from the screen that is plugged into the circuit board. This is easily pulled apart with a pair of fine needle nose pliers and replaced the same way after the repair. The soldering should be done by someone with PC board assembly experiance.

Magellan 2200T will not accept charge


Well, I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine. My unit stopped working as well after about 1.5 years.

I opened it up, thinking the battery might be a goner. But after opening it up and checking the battery with a voltmeter, it looked good.

On re-connecting the battery, everything worked fine...loose contact maybe? Its been working fine so far.

Need Power adaptor to check my iWay 500C


My GPS power works with my Motorola phone charger. If it looks like a USB connection you will have the same luck. You can even use a USB connection cord to plug the GPS into the USB that will charge it through the pc good luck!

Problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection


Hi,

I also have the same problem - the yellow power jack has broken connections. I fixed it by soldering it back. In my unit, the connection pads under the external power jack were intact and I was able to solder the jack easily. The audio out jack nearby has also come-off the PC board, along with the pads. I am not able to re-solder these back. Since the audio jack is part of the speaker circuit I have lost the text-to-speech function!

Hope you are able to fix yours.

Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi. Any thoughts? I have another Nuvi 350 that does charge with this ones car adaptor.


Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).

Power button failure


There is a well known issue with power switch failures on this unit. It happened to me as well. I have heard that you can power the unit on with the car charger or if you plug it into the PC using the USB interface. I will try this tonight and report back my finding. I will be taking mine apart because of my bad experience using Garmin's technical support line. Most likely the problem is a defective switch or broken solder joint where the switch connects to the motherboard. Remember also, you have to hold the switch down for a couple seconds for the unit to power up.

How do I recharge my Tom Tom One?


I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.
