Solution to the original problem above.

You need to connect TomTom to a computer and run their 'TomTom Home' program. Let it check for updates. It will download a file called "QuickGPSfix data". This file updates your TomTom with the latest satellite positions and ensures your TomTom will find its coordinates very quickly after switching on. A new file can be downloaded at least once a week. Generally, the longer you left it since downloading this file, the longer it will take to find its coordinates (ie. find a signal).

Hope this help.

Chris.

I was having same problem, tried resetting to factory settings, turning it off and on, tried downloading stuff from tomtom site etc etc. Spent 5 hours trying and finally found the hard reset hole at bottom of TomTom. Put pin in and held for 15 seconds, took pin out waited for 5seconds. It turned itself back on and all the GPS signals were back. Hope this works for you

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?


It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

Try holding the power button in for about 15 - 20 seconds to see if it comes on, do this whilst plugged into a computer or your car.

Battery replacement for TomTom 710


I have found a trick for those bad battery ,but you lose your waranty
you need to open your tomtom , behind the screen you wil find the battery(for the Go 710 it is an 3.7 V ,2400mAh,samsung ICR18650-24)
you find 3 wires : red, black,yellow cut them of at the half of the wire size
, then cut off your car loader wire (tomtom)(5v), you will see again 3 wires inside :red,black,white
connect the red with red, black with black, white with yellow
(the best thing is to make a little hole in the cover to pass the wire, so it will be beter for closing the all thing)
I did it and it works pretty fine ,I had save 30 dollars ;) :D
I did in approximatly 30 min
remember you will have no battery any more and no waranty of tomtom!
It only whorks then with your car loader tomtom

Tom Tom One Doesn't Turn on


in that case you will have to take off 4 screws on back the navigation system

GPS Won't Turn On


Amazing what reading through the support page at TOMTOM reveals... I have the XL so no SD card to remove, but the support page explains that a hard reset by holding the power button takes 15 SECONDS. That's actually a really long time if you watch a clock. I pressed it and waited it out, and it worked. Powered right up. Not sure if I lost all my favorites and stuff but I have them backed up using TomTom Home anyway....
