It only shows Restoring factory settings and cannot switch it on or off


With the help of NAVIGON Fresh you can reinstall the software and thus return the device to the factory state. This can be necessary when the device does not work properly anymore or when the software freezes, crashes or otherwise does not behave as intended.

Please be advised that after reinstallation your saved data and favorites will be deleted. After reinstallation a software update or reinstallation of maps can be neccessary as well.

In order to reinstall the software and return the device to the factory state follow the steps detailed below:

1. Check if your device is on the compatibility list for the device restore
process.
2. Charge your device fully with the car or home charger.

3. Connect it via USB cable directly to your PC and turn it on.

4. Start the NAVIGON Fresh program and log in to your account with your
email address and password.

If NAVIGON Fresh is not installed on your PC, you can download the
software here.
5. Go to the menu bar at the top window border and click on
"My Navigon Device" and "Restore Device".

6. If NAVIGON Fresh does not recognize your device, please contact the
service center.

7. Follow the instructions and choose the device which you want to restore.

8. When the wizard has lead you through all the steps, click "next" to
begin the device restore.

9. As soon as the device restore has successfully finished, check for
updates for your device and install them.

Forgot Password on my Garmin and want reset


Hi,
I have tried this on my Garmin 205:
1) Turn the GPS while holding on the lower-right corner of the screen as the GPS powers up. Keep your fingers there until a message box appears. 2) Select "Yes" when the message box asks if you want to clear all user data. As a result, all original settings will be restored and any saved items will be immediately erased. You can now reset your password.
Before doing this procedure, please do a backup of your SD-micro card by copying the contents to another similar memory card.

Forgot password


Unfortunately, even if you perform master reset on Garmin GPS unit, it does not reset Garmin Lock security feature, which password-protect most Garmin electronic devices to deter theft. If you forget the PIN or password unlock code to unlock the Garmin unit, the best solution is to bring it to Garmin to get unlocked. “Secure Location” does not unlock a locked Garmin unit either as it’s only a temporary fix as when it’s turn on outside the security location, the device is locked again."
So unfortunately, there is only one option: You have to send your nüvi into the Garmin, who can unlock it. Remember original receipt.

4. Click inside the check box and click "Copy items to computer".
(This step is back up for just incase)
5. After Backing up your applications, then Click "Applications" check box and click "Remove from device".
6. After removing applications, unplug from computer and switch off ONE XL.
7. Connect ONE XL and computer again and switch on your ONE XL.
8. TOMTOM Home will search your applications in your device. Finally it will automatically download and installed the new applications. (There will be 4 times installation and the device will restart itself. At this step, you need to touch "Yes" on your device to connect the device and computer.)
9. After installation completed, your device looks like newly come out from the factory.
10. Set up Language, Time, and so on and ready to use.

Enjoy it

Password locked


If you havent tried reset then a restore may fix it if you did a backup before you set the password. If you can read the contents on a pc there is supposedly a file that holds the pw that can be deleted which will then prompt you next time you boot up to give it a new pw but aint verified that one

How do I unlock the security lock on my Tom Tom navigation device?


If you don’t know what the 4 digit password is you will have to reset the unit. This will clear all saved information.

Reset factory settings
To show all menu options, tap Show ALL menu options.
Reset factory settings
Tap this button to restore the factory settings to your TomTom ONE XL. All your settings, including Favorites, your Home location, warnings for POIs and any Itineraries you have created, as well as recent destinations and recent calls and callers, will be deleted.

Lost password


Magellan should be able to provide you a patch that will reset the security password. You would need to open a support case with them through their website, or call their customer support center:
