My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom


The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

Tomtom 720 won't turn on. Its charging as i type this as am not sure how flat it is. But..... Q1. Left it on charge on laptop for about 45 mins and it started to install Tomtom home. Windows Vista then...


Remove the SD card and try to connect to your computer, the 720 maps are in the internal memory and the unit should start. If not try a hard Reset through the "Reset"hole in the case of the GPS. insert a small paper clip to reset the GPS.

720 GPS screen off center


This is just a guess, but when you reconnected the flat ribbon cable cable to the board, you might have somehow not gotten it centered in the connector.

I HAVE A TOM TOM GO 720 I SWITCH IT ON NO PROBLEM BUT WITHIN 30 SECONDS BATTERY WITH A YELLOW I IN A TRIANGLE COMES UP AND GOES OFF


The GO 720 charges quite slowly when attached to the in-vehicle cigarette lighter cord. If you have a USB attachment (that allows you to connect the GO720 to your computer) just insert the GO720 into the USB cradle - you don't have to turn it on - and let it sit there for about 10 hours. You should see the green light on the GO720 indicating that power is being received. In fact, I don't think you even need to turn on the computer, as power is always fed to the USB circuit. If you see the green light, then the GO720 is being charged. I think your GPS just needs a good charge.

Tomtom 720 is not recharging and does not give the options when on home base


I would suspect a collapsed battery if it does not charge on its base.
Replace the battery, the life should be 2 years if used correctly. This means not plugging it to DC car power when starting engine. battery will collapse withing 6-12 months if you do

My go 720 gps keeps freezing up


try resetting it, if that doesnt work, connect your unit to tomtom home. if you dont have tomtom home, follow the link at the bottom.

To reset your TomTom device, do the following:
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

Battery low


This may seem like a dumb question, but have you tested the lighter socket to see if it's working? If the TomTom is plugged in, you shouldn't get a low battery warning.
