SOURCE: tomtom300 gps mains charging +
1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?
Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.
2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?
You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad
3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?
You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.

I too just got mine from Santa... it's designed to operate while plugged into the lighter. It also charges the Li ion battery. If the Garmin screen comes on while you are using it I would suspect an error or what ever. (you DID move the little switch on the top left corner to unlock didn't you?) Just call their number 800 800-1020 and ask them. They were most helpful and were there well after the hours posted in the instruction book.

if the unit is more than 2 years old the chances are the battery is defective/worn out, you say battery appears to charge up, so think you are unsure of the battery condition.

This issue usually results from eitherr a bad battery connection
or a lose wire inside the unit
i would suggest to remove the battery and look at the pins that the battery touches and see if they are bent or loose and see if they are clean and not corroded and than try to reinstall the battery and see what happens if this still does not solve your problem than i would consult a authorized tomtom repair center and if you have a warranty i would use it

Short answer is no. This is a common question, best you can do is to set your gps for bus, this will not be the same as a truck and is in no way truck specific or even going to keep you on the truck routes, but it should keep you out of places to small for you to even consider.
Truck specific software is available for North America but not for or from your gps maker.Sorry
