Question about Tomtom GO 510 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Lost password I bought a tomtom 710 from a friend that is going to iraq this weekend and this morning when I put the unit in my car it kept asking for a password. As tim has left and cannot be reached for several days , i need some advise on the pass word system, tomtom says send it to them to reset it for a fee and approx. two weeks time limit, I figured there was an easier way to reset the thing

Hi,
This is a simple anti-theft system that recognises it's woken up in a different place than where it went to sleep. The simple method is to return to where it was last, and try again. You will need the password eventually, but this should get it working.

TRIED TO UPDATE MY TOMTOM GO 710 BUT NOT ENOUGH MEMORY BOUGHT NEW CARD BUT TOM TOM WONT TAKE IT TRANSFERED DATA BACK ON TO OLD CARD BUT TOMTOM WONT TAKE THIS...SHOW TWO CROSSED HAND ON MEMORY CARD...


Just had the same problem..............

I discovered that you must only use an SD card and not an SDHD card.

I bought a bigger SD card (2Gig), installed it and copied the data I wanted without any probs. With the SDHD card I couldn't transfer anything and didn't get any help as to why...(there's a lot to be said for trial & error).

Hope this helps

Inproper directions


Try updating your TomTom ONE unit with the latest mapping software on TomTom website for $69.95.
http://www.tomtom.com/products/maps/select.php?D=29&M=480
Most PND units these days are very accurate but they are not 100% accurate so if you find an issue with the direction or location of an address, try reporting it to TA who is also owned by TomTom.

If you are not happy with your TomTom unit, consider testing a differnt model or brand such as Garmin or Magellan to see if the direction is any better. Garmin and Magellan both use NavTeq mapping software and most consumers are happy with their mapping software.

If you are in a pinch, you can rent a GPS from GPS4Rent.com and receive a unit with the latest software available to enusre you that you will have a sucessful trip without getting lost to much.

You can buy a higher end PND product such as a Garmin nuvi 255-265, TomTom 920-930 or Magellan 1470 or a Maestro 4700 from Autonavdirect.com if you are not happy with your TomTom ONE.

Good Luck

Dropped on the floor and will not work. Got green light when plugged into car overnight but nothing on screen. Can it be fixed?


Well for a price, you must send back to TomTom. You can ask for a "Quote" before proceeding, they are a good unit,it may not cost too much, but factor in shipping too...

Tomtom Go 710 continually trying to shut down,still plugged in to car adapter or mains power, but comes up with 10 second warning continually, shutting down.


I have had the same problem. unfortunately I have been told that it is the cradle connections to the main unit. they are at fault due to wear and tear and causes the shutdown. Try wiggling the cradle when connected, if there is some slack play then you may also have the same problem.... by the way, Tom Tom are not interested unless within warranty and they dont sell replacement cradles!

I HAVE A TOM TTOM GO 710...DOES IT NEED A SIM CARD


yes, the tomtom 710 needs the sd card which has the maps on it. if you just bought it and didnt get one with it, i suggest you take it back, because the cost of the card often out weights the value of the gps.

if you want to buy a sd card for it, you can get one HERE on the tomtom site or you might want to try ebay.com which sometimes they have them...i just checked ebay for you and currently there are none listed.

I lost the dock that connects to the computer


Your only option is to purchase another Home dock for your TomTom GO 510. The 510, 710, and 910 all use the same dock. The cheapest place to purchase a home dock is ebay. The answer to the second part of your question is no, you cannot purchase a usb cable to connect your TomTom GO 710 to your pc. The TomTom GO series uses a proprietary dock.

Tom Tom Go 710, There is a password set on it and


TomTom say that you will need to return the unit to them to unlock it, but there is an independant prog download available that costs £40. How good that is I don't know, so I suggest you mail TomTom Service dept to see what they say. I reckon it is the cheapest alternative.

TOMTOM GO 710


Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.
