Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I have a GO 720 and when turning it on I get a screen with a flashing red circle with a white cross... I have reset it and downloaded updates but it hasnt recified the problem. Any ideas???
I tired to update my tom tom one with a new map, firstly the info with the map won't display a product code so I couldn't activate the map, then I tried to disconnect my device and the "dreaded flashing cross of death" appeared and locked up the unit. so far I've tried reseting the device, formatting the memory and even threatening the unit with a very large hammer. nothing F*#king works.
After downloading software updates to my tomtom go 700 I was "infected" with the famous "white screen of death". Doing a soft reset plus a hard reset plus calling tech support, holding down on button for a minute, holding in reset pin for a minute, combinations of both etc. I gathered I am so very glad I fought off the impulse to buy a newer model of tomtom. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Reading dozens of like frustrated reports of people suffering the failures of these "not quite ready for prime time GPS units, I will be buying a Garmin, thank you. I have had a trusty Garmin Street Pilot III in my car with no problems at all for a number of years now. I was intrigued by the "Life time maps" offer of tomtom but not intrigued enough to buy a flakey unit that has obvious design problems like these "white screen of death" ones.
