How do I charge the TomTom XL 330S

I just got this for Christmas. It says to fully charge the battery before using. The problem is, how do you charge the battery? Do I have to charge it in the car, as a car charger is the only thing that came with it for charging.

You can either charge in the car, or you can use the docking station (USB cable you connect with to use TomTom Home) to charge from your computer

Hi There!

You Can charge your Tomtom when you drive, or you can charge it with a USB port on your computer.
I don't think they come with a mains charger anymore?

I was charging my tomtom on the computer. Suddenly my computer made the noise it makes when a device is detached. So I unhooked it and tried to turn it on, and it wont. The screen is active when I plug it...


Wait for the battery to fully recharge, The battery was ln a low state, are you sure you were using the correct USB cord. Some look very similar but one of the inner cables is disconnected and so does not charge the unit.
If you still get no luck after using correct cable then it may be time to change the battery as it has collapsed. batteries last up to 2 years and can go very quickly. Never plug it into car power whenhj starting engine. It shortens battery life and damages siirf chip

If it needs to be charged for 2 hours will it run down your car battery???


You can safely plug it in overnight, if you wish so and if it is safe from burglary. It will not discharge your battery as these units takes only very little power.

Xl 330s will not locate/display maps, just a blank screen saying "no maps found"


suspect that your maps file is corruped or lost. this may have occured due to a drop or other inteference such as high magnetic field or eletromagnetic interference.
if you connect your tomtom to your pc you can view inside to see if the maps are in the device. if they are not then you may have to redownload them from any map software you had or from the TOMTOM website using tomtom home.

Can the tom tom xl 330s get a memory upgrade and if so how. Thanx


No, what you see is what you get, there is no slot for an SD card or any other form factor, the internal memory is also not upgradable.

NOT GIVING SPOKEN STREET NAMES


try resetting your unit


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.


Press and hold the On/Off button until your device restarts. This can take more than fifteen seconds.

if that fail, use your tomtom home to update your unit.
