I worked out that the car charger must take a while if the unit is completley flat... therefore I plugged it into my laptop and it took the charge....and is holding it...laptop must charge it quicker...

I have just replaced my old battery in my 1995 Chevy Lumina and now the new one seems to dicharge completely over night and sometime even sooner. What could be the problem?


if a diode is out in the alternator it will possibly charge the battery but also let it drain off overnight hence dead in morning

Can the Tomtom recharge wheh the car is not in use - eg in the garage


No, then tom tom cannot recharge when the car is not on. You need to turn on the car before your tom tom can charge. The battery gets to charge the tom tom when in use. Once the car is turned off the gps will not charge. You can try out a practical by turning off your car and plugging the gps to see if it will work. Or the cigarette lighter, does it work when the car is turned off. Since the cigarette lighter does not turn on when the car is off, then it means it gps cannot charge once the car is turned off.
Hope this information helped you!

My Tomtom will not turn on even if it is on the charger.


If your tom tom does not seem to charge, then there seem to be a problem somewhere in the unit. You need to run a check on the battery, the charger and the device itself.

First test the charger by trying to use it on another device, if it charges the device, then it is working perfectly fine, but if it does not, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replace with a new one.

Test the battery also, by inserting it into another device, plug it with a well tested charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge. If it does turn on, then it means your battery is intact, but if it does not, then it means the battery is dead and cannot hold a charge. And the solution to that is for you to replace the battery.

Test the device by inserting a well tested battery in it, and connecting a well tested charger on to it also, if it does not charge, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or something with the device.

After carrying out these tests, you will be able to detect the problem and how to solve it.

I hope this information was helpful to you.

Hi there...I had not used my Hoveround MPV4 scooter for over a year and when I finally went to use it, the batteries were no good any longer as they would not hold a charge...so I just bought two brand new...


Hi Pam,
The new batteries should work right away. (Your old ones had gone solid from sitting for so long- charge the new ones at least once a week to keep that from happening, even if you are not using your power chair.)
You may want to check all of the connections to make sure they are tight especially on the battery posts, also make sure the fuses are not burned out. It's recommended to run the new batteries into the red (fully discharge) then let them charge for 8-12 hours to make sure the batteries get a full charge the first time out, but if you haven't done that, it should not cause any flashing lights.
You said that green lights were flashing (assuming on the controller); if all 10 bars (3 red, 4 yellow, 3 green) are flashing that indicates a poor battery connection. 9 bars means you need to do a brake reset. Check page 51 of your manual for controller light codes or check this link: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
If you have any other concerns, let me know. Good luck!

My Tom Tom XL 325 wont hold a charge while left off


Hi, leaving the unit in the cradle exposed to the sun during hot days has been known to fry the battery causing loss of battery capacity. perhaps this could be your problem. I replaced the battery in my last GPS 4 times because of this before I analysed the problem. This will most likely be outlined in your user manual too. You might also compare the output capabilities between your blackberry and tomtom charger - it is entirely possible that you are starving the unit of a decent charge if the blackberry charger is not to the same current capacity as the tomtom charger.

Batteries


Hi, This might be a case of the defective batteries (though brand new). Most if not all rechargeable batteries including Li-Ion batteries have only so much shelf life. The unit might be new but have been with the dealer for sometime. Probably your best bet would be to bring it back to the dealer and ask for a replacement camera or at least the batteries. Show him the fully charged indicator and how quick it will be gone when you try to take a pic. Of course, you would need your warranty card, proof of purchase and any other documents normally asked for complaints like this, Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.
