What you need to do,
hold the reset button for 20 seconds which is located at the bottem of the tomtom (make sure to use a pin or similar in size).
then connect the tomtom to the computer and turn it on.
this should reconnect and allow you tomtom to communicate with the computer

If you have a memory card in your Tomtom - remove it before you connect as sometimes your PC see your Tomtom as some kind of storage device.

Waiting for a valid gps signal


A couple solutions:

1) Make sure the TomTom can "see" the sky well... the GPS satellite waves are rather weak and easily blocked by trees, and anything not a window.

2) Hook up your TomTom to the computer (see details at www.tomtom.com or in the manual)

2b) Do a "sync" and download all updates. One of the updates is a small file that tells the TomTom where the satellites are located this week, and helps it sync up much faster. The longer time between uses, the longer it takes TomTom to find the satellites, and that can takes up to 2-5 minutes sometimes.

That can be frustrating with a car full of people waiting to get going and the driver doesn't want to drive without making sure the TomTom works and is giving valid directions.

Tom tom 520 memory card


tt520 do use a specific file format so it is possible that removing any info on the disk first will help, if this is possible do it through a computers card reader then you can see what is on the card and if you want to format it.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
