You need to do the update again to fix the problem.

When the tom tom 730 is turned on and has a route set it keeps canging screens back to the menu and selecting the topright hand option continuously. whats wrong with the unit??


I have had the same problem with this model of TomTom. Called the company and they sent me a new one. Same thing wrong with the new one they sent. The one technician said it is a problem with the application loaded onto the unit. Haven't found a fix for it yet, and they won't send another model, just the same one over and over.

Tom tom go 910 red cross flashing wont re set


Well i am writing this wile I am trying this out...
I have a TomTom Go 910 that has a RED CROSS FLASHING on the bottom corner, what I have found is that if you have backed up your TomTom Go i maybe able to reset the TomTom Go on my computer but if you havent you may have to find on try finding one on google but i have a TomTom Go 910 you can download the 910 on http://rapiddigger.com/download/backup-go-910-rar-9110176/.

after you found the back-up you can connect your TomTom Go to your computer using the USB provided from your TomTom Go, replace the doggie file with the new one, then this should change it back to the FIRST update given...

(WARNING >> PLEASE scan the file befor you put it in your TomTom Go it might contain a very very evil virus<< WARNING)

Go 730 not sending a fm signal


Hi,

If you have made a recent update this may be the reason you may have lost your FM transmission!!

Tom Tom disabled silent FM transmission on these units to comply with the law in certain countries which prohibit these FM transmissions. Later updates configured the units to output lower strength FM transmissions.

There is a possible workaround for this - see this link for a discussion on the issue.
http://www.tomtomforums.com/tomtom-go-630-720-720t-730-730t-740/19436-go-730-lost-fm-transmission-after-map-update.html

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa

TOM TOM RED X APPEARS AND UNIT WON'T SHUT OFF


That typically happens as a result of an application update that either downloaded an incorrect version of the application for the device, or the application update didn't complete before the device was removed, or the application it downloaded was somehow corrupt.

Try deleting any application updates that were downloaded into HOME, then delete the application from the device, then download the new application update for your device, and install it to the device. Give it a good wait after it says it has finished installing the application update and then be sure to use the software eject button within HOME before disconnecting the drive.

Otherwise, you probably have a call to TT support in your future where they will likely have you download a utility to clear the flash on the drive and reinstall the app on the device after that

Hi i have justnd just purchases tom tom 730 Go and connected it to my pc. it wont seem to disconnect. it wont turn on fully and has a big cross on the screen


That means you didn't let TomTom Home finish your update before you disconnected. You can do one of two things: reconnect update your device, but if that fails to work, you're going to need to do a hard reset of the device. It is very important to allow TomTom Home to completely finish installing any updates you select before disconnecting or the software may become corrupt.

730T - tomtom home hangs when checking for updates - mac


Hi - have had the same problem - if you look on the tomtom website and support they have a list and one is flashing red cross. You need to follow the steps to format the tomtom. I did this and it worked and it included the update. i havent reconnected since i have it working now. I think its a software problem with HOME. Make sure you do a back up on home and make sure you follow step by step. close HOME before you start to reformat and also in the preferences turn off the automatically connect to home when you plug into your computer or it keeps flashing up on the screen to correct. the only solution is to format it. i bought mine two days ago and the first one stuffed up so took it back for a replacement. this one worked when i turned it on but turned out the flashing cross appeared when connected to computer (i have a mac). good luck
