In rare cases, your TomTom device may not start correctly or may stop responding. If this happens, try resetting your device. A reset does not delete any data.
Select your device from the list below to see how to reset it.

Can i reset my tomtom one v3 to original factory settings


Hello,

yes you can rest your tom tom. If you don't know how to do the reset, follow the steps below:

  1. Remove the TomTom GO from its cradle.
  2. Turn the unit upside down.
  3. Look for a small hole in the bottom of the unit. It will be located just behind the release button. The reset button is recessed inside this hole.
  4. Straighten out one end of the paperclip.
  5. Press the recessed button by inserting the straightened end of the paperclip into the reset hole.
  6. Hold the button down for ten seconds, then pull the paperclip out of the hole. Your Tom Tom GO should now be reset back to the original factory settings.
Take care.

To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot, on the bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on it will be back to it's factory settings.

Bought tomtom 3rd edition on ebay from florida Ilive in canada and have no proof were I got it . My problem is I put in a password and do not remember what it is . Tomtom customer support says they can...


If you have forgotten the password, you have to send it in to TT Support, according to this:
http://www.tomtom.com/support/index.php?Language=1&query=password&FID=4616

And, yes, you have to prove that the unit belongs to you.
Can you get hold of the previous owner for original receipt?

I cant see any other solution...
