Rubbing alcohol or a soapy water solution using a soft cloth or paper towel would work fine without scratching your screen

Tom tom 130 screen cracked.. how to open unit to replace?


Very easy! First, unstick the label on the botton of the unit.Using a Torx T6 tool, unscrew the two tiny screws.
Now remove the front silver finishing very carefully from the lower edge since the screen may come off along with it damaging the flat cable
Good Luck

I have the Tom Tom ONE (Build 2000) Tom Tom Palermo (if this Info Screen info is helpful). This Tom Tom HAS NO RESET PIN HOLE (Thanks a lot Tom Tom). I instaled included Tom Tom Home software, went to...


My thanks to the gentleman who posted the link to Tom Tom's solutions link. Although I had been there previously months ago when I first encountered this problem, there had been at that time, no instructions from them on how to properly reset the One that does not have a reset pin hole. That was in March. There are now such instructions.
The key to resetting such a Tom Tom GPS device lies in plugging your One into your computer, which automatically launches Tom Tom Home software (please remember, you have to have Home software installed on your computer already). After doing this:
1. When Home launches, go to Manage My Device Folder (p.2) and click it to open it.
2. You will see a folder-style window which lists all of the items that are your device. Select the folder tab: 'Items on device.' Then Deselect Applications. Click OK when promted. The Applications software will be deleted from your Tom Tom One.
3. IMPORTANT! Then clcik the other folder tab 'Items on computer.' Do the same here by deselcting to uninstal software on your computer as well. Click OK when promted.
4. If you do not get an automatic dialog box indicating that you need new application software installed, return to p.1 and select the folder 'Update My Device.' Follow the instructions as prompted and Tom Tom will both download new computer Home software as well as new software to the One device.
That should do it.
I will tell you that it took me three passes at this process. So it's not a breeze. But in the end it finally worked. And my One, which had been down since March is once again finally up and running with new software and as well as I remember it working.
Hope this helps others.

Tried to update my Tom Tom One by connecting to my


Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

formatting is better done in a card reader.

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Update your device without the SD card.

Make sure your GPS runs OK without the SD card

Now re-connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.

Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card and re-boot
It should now work again

My screen on the nuvi 660 will not respond.


Please don't attempt to do this yourself. You need the right tools so you don't damage the case and internal parts. Also, a replacement touchscreen does NOT come with the 2mm double-sided adhesive to apply it to the LCD bezel. You have to pry off the old touchscreen & glass, clean off the adhesive residue and apply the new screen. I've done this hundreds of times. Unless you have the right tools, you risk damaging your unit. I've received countless number of units that were damaged by their owners.

Tom tom gps adhesive plate


Use an 'alcowipe' available from your local chemist.
The alcohol in the wipe will disolve the glue and will not affect your windscreen.

Aternatively get a bottle of 'Spirit Alcohol', also available from the chemists and use a cloth to dissolve the glue
