Hi, try a reset ( push paperclip into hole underneath tomtom ) . if the reset doesnt work then its likely your charger might be faulty and putting too much voltage out and has damaged your tomtom . ( quite common ) .
Good luck .

ps , I have posted solution to this problem many times so it might be worth reading / looking through my other posts .

Show charging symbols


Your question was posted under the Nuvi 680 GPS, so I am assuming this is the model that you have.

On the main screen, you will see a green battery status indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The battery is divided into 4 parts. Each part represents 1/4 power. So if you have one green bar, that indicates that the battery has 1/4 of power left. If there are 3 bars, that indicates that there is 3/4 power left.

When the unit is charging, you will see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the green battery status icon.

When the lightning bolt is not there, this means the unit is running off of the battery.

When leaving the unit to charge, press and hold the power button until you see that the screen says Charging Battery. A few seconds later, the screen will go blank to save energy.

Pressing the screen again later will either say Charging Battery or Battery Charge Complete.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

What are the instruction on how long to charge


I just purchased the 255w yesterday and set it up in the car for the return trip. I also saw it did not say how long to charge, but there are green bars on the top right that tell how much charge there is. The return trip was about an hour and a half and it was completely charged with all bars by the time I arrived, from the car's 12v accessary jack.

Unit shut down


I have run into the same problem and it may be related to the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) feature. Try disabling this feature (under MAIN MENU / Setup). I used this receiver overseas (Asia and Europe) last year for 35 days straight with no problems. During this time WAAS was disabled as none of these satellites are visible overseas. The problem occurred intermittently prior to the overseas trip, and has reoccurred after returning. I was running into the same problem this past weekend and noticed the screen blanking out (with the vertical line) shortly after differential corrections were applied to the GPS signals. I disabled the WAAS and let the receiver run for over an hour. The problem did not return. Hope this helps.

Won't turn on...hear the beep, and screen works.


Exact same problem for me on the exact same day (2-sep) as well - freaky! Unit was out of battery and I charged it but that was the last time I managed to get it working - charging it now to see if it makes any diff. Actually with mine I hear the beep and the initial splash screen shows for about 1 sec and then that's it - it seems to go off again. I think it's something to do with the battery as it seems to work when connected to the charger - not a whole lot of good to me!

Blank Screen


Same Problem. I fixed mine with a baseball bat, hammer, and a cold beer. Lesson learned: NEVER BUY DELPHI AGAIN. NEVER..... Tell your friends. Delphi = POS

Lost all my Saved Favorites!?!


If the favorites do not show up, unfortunately they may be gone forever. Check the Recently Found and see if any are there, then re-save them. I don't know why it would lose the favorites to begin with, but once gone, they are usually gone. By the way, resetting can remove them also.

GPS screen went blank


My problem exactly. Unit would start up, acquire satellites, then the screen would go blank with a single vertical line. Unit would not respond to buttons or even turn off. Unit works fine after I did the reset:

- w/unit OFF, press and hold QUIT+DOWN+MENU
- press and release the power button, release DOWN, keep holding QUIT+MENU for 5 seconds.
- unit prompts something like: "erase all data;" choose yes.
- you will lose waypoints, etc.

Go to the Garmin support area for details.
