Tomtom won't switch on

I've got a tomtom Go 700 and it was working fine. I switched it off when I went into the shops and it won't switch back on. Thought it might have somehow drained the battery, but even after charging it all night from a mains socket - no luck

Hi my tomtom go 700 will not switch on beyond the home screen, then a flashing red and white cross is permanently on the screen is this problem fixable ?


Sounds like you tried to upgrade and something went wrong.
If there is a reset button on the bottom or back that'll be your best bet. The red X means it cannot find the operating system but usually a hard reset will fix it.

Upload latest western europe map v7.20 to TOMTOM 700 not possible


I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.

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.

Tomtom 700 in a standby mode


Hi Juanin, just posted this for a near identical problem with a Tomtom 700; When you get this kind of problem with a Tomtom device always start with the memory card, so: 1: remove the card, clean the contacts and if you have an air duster (available from any good hardware store/electronics store) clean the card slot, then reinsert it. 2: make sure the card is readable on your PC to ensure it doesn't have a problem. if this doesn't help then 3: format the card and reinstall the maps & software on to it. 4: make sure the card is reinserted correctly. Next is the battery, leave the device switched on until the battery runs out, switch it on again and it should stay on for a moment then switch its self back off, repeat this until it will not switch on anymore and then charge it for at-least 16 hours before trying it again, this will re-calibrate the battery. Diagnosing a problem is a process and this is just the start of it, don't be disheartened if this doesn't help, just message back with the results.
