Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tomtom 720 will not start up freezes on initial screen.

My tomtom 720 which is about 6 months old will not start up, it freezes on the initial screen and  reseting it does not solve the problem. I have attached it to my Mac via the docking  station but it does not function - the Mac TomTom software keeps asking me to remove and  re-attach the device.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, and based on your description a firmware issue. Much as would be wanted, there are no button combination/reset easy fix. The firmware has to be flashed backed into the unit. Not unless you have access to a bootloader and the basic firmware (not updates), then unfortunately, the only practical recourse is to send it back to the manufacturer (not even the dealer or the point of purchase).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

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

hook it to your usb cable to your for a few hours and then try and start it. first with the power button, it that fails try the hard reset..if neither those work, download tomtom home. follow the directions and tomtom home should be able to repair it unless you have internal problems, like a bad usb port on the gps. bill

Certain functions not working? tomtom go 720


This happens with my cell phone all the time too, just have to go to manage phones and delete my phone then re-configure it and that seems to fix it for a while at least. Also night & day always has to be done manually, it won't change automatically that i'm aware of. I'm pretty sure i had to download some of the free voices from the TomTom Home or website initially, in any case i prefer to use my TomTom 720 without voice as becomes annoying listening all day nag nag nag blah blah blah.

Restarts unexpectedly and slow to start


The TomTom 520 and 720 are the same unit. the differance is the maps. The 520 has maps of the US and the 720 has maps of Europe. Download the free clearflash utility from TomTom and run it a couple of times. This should clear up your problem. Sometimes the mapset config in the map gets full and it has to be cleared.
