Question about Tomtom GO 910

1 Answer

Tomtom Support Sucks!

Ok I feel better! I just called them about my Go700 that I paid $800 for at Bestbuy four or five years ago. Needless to say their help was terrible! BUT they did wish me the best and said they'd take $100 of one of their other products . . . why would I buy something else that they won't stand behind. I think it's a battery issue but can't be sure. Please email me @ X i a n w a y 2002 at yahoo.com Much thanks!

TomTom's have definitely improved over the years. I'd say a lot has to do with the better mapping available. Tele Atlas is making great strides and TomTom supplements their data with Map Share and user corrections. I've seen a huge improvement from my ONE to my Go 930. I'd say take advantage of their offer and get something new with the new maps. Electronics only have so long of a shelf life, might as well capitalize while you can since a 5 year old product is well out of warranty

I have Lutron Maestro switches throughout my home and love them. However, two of them are now difficult to use. They do work eventually, but I have to press repeatedly and very firmly to get them to turn...


The best thing you can do is call Lutron's tech support at 1-800-523-9466. They're available 24/7 and get probably point you in a better direction than being able to diagnose / troubleshoot over e-mail / this forum. Generally speaking, I don't think they will replace your plastics. It is possible for it to get worn over time - but that could be the plastic, or it could be the buttons within the unit. Either way, like I said, they probably won't recommend anything to repair the unit, but you can request that they replce it - especially if its only been in use for 3-5 years.

My tomtom go 700 is about 5 years old and i need to update the maps how do i start?


1.First of all check that TOMTOM actually still support this product and only perform updates using a wired network connection - WIFI can drop out and corrupt the downloads
2.Then see if they actually are supplying a new map for the 700
3.Without activating TOMTOM Home, plug your GO700 into your PC and let it recognise the 'drive assignment'
4.Take a FULL backup of all files on the TOMTOM 2Gb disk on your PC NOTE: this is totally separate and additional to any backups you might make with TOMTOM Home.
5.Disconnect your TOMTOM
6.Start your TOMTOM Home software and perform an update check from the 'help' drop down menu
7.Once you have this updated connect your TOMTOM
8.Perform a full backup again with the TOMTOM Home software
9.Search using TOMTOM Home for any GO700 application software updates and install these (NOTE - ONLY INSTALL THE APPLICATION UPDATES)
10.Reboot your GO700 to make sure that it works with any application updates
11.Re-connect your TOMTOM and this time perform a search for map updates to purchase and follow the instructions.
12.It is very likely that TOMTOM Home will say that there is not enough space on the drive to install the new map, it will follow an automatic process to remove your old map and then install the new one that you have purchased on lne from TOMTOM.
13. If Home has installed your new map correctly, when you log off and disconnect your GO700 it should then initialise - the long time bar rebuidling the maps and then start up normally. It can be necessary to reset your GO700 using the rest button under the base.

GOOD LUCK, This is currently a very messy process but one which seems to work for recovering the GO700 in the event of a failure, TOMTOM have been hopeless for me in getting any maps installed on a GO700, so this is my way of getting round their lousy support service.
