SOURCE: Formatting a tomtom go 710

Hi, I probably cant answer all of your questions but I might help with some of them. You should be able to access your TomTom 710 without removing TomTom home software from your PC. It should be accesses as a drive through the USB connection in "my computer" on your PC. When a USB device is connected to your PC it appears as an external drive. Therefore you should be able to delete , load onto , or format the TomTom hard drive ( or with some other models the SD card ) as you would a normal drive . ( an example of this is where you might have a camer with SD memory card and relevant manufacturers software on your PC . you might connect your camera to the PC via USB and the camera software on your PC automaticly detects the camera for it to eb accesssed . However , the camera and it's SD card can also be accessed seperatly by going to "MY Compter" and it should also be visible there as an external UDB device / external drive ) . Now .. to another another question . If you do un-install TomTom home , I dont think it will also delete any backup of your TomTom , it will only delete TomTom Home software . ( the word "think" is mentioned because I have never tried this ). Besides that , you can choose in tomtom home , where you want any backups to reside , so you could save backups via TomTom home to a CD for istance. If you did that , then you would have the backup on a CD rather than your harddrive which means you could safely un-install TomTom home knowing that if it also removed any saved backup you would still have the CD with a backup on it. So , to summerise.... If it were me , I would make a backup of the TomTom by simply copying all the files on it by opening the TomTom up as a folder in "MY Computer" , simply drag any files and folders from the TomTom into a folder I have prepaired ( call it for instance "my tomtom backup" ) on my PC . Then I would format the TomTom drive then reinstall the backup and see what happens. If the TomTom still doesnt work properly , I would Format the tomtom again then use TomTom home to obtain all relivant files , then copy only the maps and .MAC files ( these are the authorisation files for the maps ) from my Backup to the TomTom manually ( not from tomtom home ). I would guess that would result in a working TomTom again ... Good luck.

Go to My Computer, then the TomTom drive and click explore. Move your Map folder to the desktop. Then, delete everything on the tomtom drive. Unplug it, plug it back in, and start up Tomtom HOME and install all updates, keep unplugging, plugging back in, and installing updates until there aren't any more updates. Then move your map folder back to where it was on your TomTom drive.

Please rate, Thank you!

SOURCE: TomTom start up screen & music file

The file should be in the sound folder. To access the sound folder connect your tt to your pc then go to my computer open the tt drive and you will see all the files on the tt. If you don't see the files you may have to go tothe control panel, then folder options, click view and make sure you have show hidden files and folders checked save then you will see all the files on your tt. You should be able to download start and shutdown sound files from tt home also.
Hope this helps

Can you use a car tomtom when walking


Yes, definitely You can, but that will not provide correct position of GPS signal. And GPS signal will be showed with delay.
Otherwise You can Use TomTom as You walking,
Battery will not last much long. So make sure You charge Your TomTom Nav in full. :)

My tomtom one gps can't get signal


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.
Please, do the following:
1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. Be sure you choose to update "QuickFix".
Please, report back if you need further assistance

I have A TOMTOM one N14644 and it lost the GPS signal. tried to do factory reset and still dont get signal . unit worked fine yesterday?


hi it can help to get the latest quickgpsfix file. go online with tomtomhome and download this file. also be sure that you dont have heat reflecting on your windshield, this can also disturb your sats receiving. instead of facory reset its also possible to make softreset. you can find it on tomtom.com, support, search softreset, select softreset, select your device, and do as told. good luck.

Tomtom not getting a valid GPS signal. Not picking up any satelitte signals at all.And yes I am outside,and fully charged and keep getting a prompt waiting for a valid GPS Signal.Tomtom is 1 yearand 1...


This is a common issue with TomTom software in general!
To alleviate this issue, Tomtom has released QuickGPS add-on to locate satellites faster. If you have not got it loaded to your device, download the appropriate version of QuickGPS from the TomTom site and make sure you use TomTom Home (connected to the Web and your device) to update both your MAP and QuickGPS on a regular basis.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

My tomtom lost signal today it has not come back.the model i have is tomtom one 125. the blue arrow is not on the correct street.my tomtom is only 6 month old


I am tempted! yes here goes Your signal wont come back, your signal wont come back ( Old Tune of my boomerang wont come back)

It probably wont if the battery is flat , so first try charging bthe battery before turning to map programming. If that doesn't work then expect the worst.... you have damaged the SIIRF chip which is the chip that contacts the satellites
Very expensive to reapair cheaper to buy a new GPS generally
tomtom are notorious for this problem, but most times its caused by user abuse of overcharging or starting the car with the GPS plugged to DC spikes are common even though they dont blow the fuse in the charger plug. Even Mobile phones should be plugged after the engine is started. none of the GPS Distributors othert than one wilkl tell you of this money spinner. Next time aroumd you may want to consider an ALTINA see Marbella Australia and also read their FAQ on caring for your GPS

Plug in your tomtom and open my computer. Make note of the driver letter next to the tomtom symbol. Click Start, run (or search on vista or windows 7) and type in "CMD" without quotes and hit enter. a black window will open. type the letter you noted in my computer followed by a colon. Example: F: and press enter.
then type "chkdsk /f" without quotes and press enter. Answer yes to all the following prompts. once completed "takes less than a minute" type exit.

You can also try tomtom backup and then restore.

I needs help about down'oading the software on my tomtom.i don't have a signal on the tomtom.


You need to connect the Tom Tom to the computer with a USB cable. If it is connected properly then it will ask Conect to the computer Yes / No. If you say Yes you can then use Tom Tom Home (supplied on the CD which came with the SatNav) to manage software / map downloads.

You don't need a satellite signal to download software / maps.

No GPS signal?


I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.
