Yes, I have an old nokio phone charger with the correct connection and it charges fine using that. It will also charge up when connected via the USB cable to your Computer, obviously when it is switched on,

thanks for using FixYa

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home

The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

Can the Tomtom recharge wheh the car is not in use - eg in the garage

No, then tom tom cannot recharge when the car is not on. You need to turn on the car before your tom tom can charge. The battery gets to charge the tom tom when in use. Once the car is turned off the gps will not charge. You can try out a practical by turning off your car and plugging the gps to see if it will work. Or the cigarette lighter, does it work when the car is turned off. Since the cigarette lighter does not turn on when the car is off, then it means it gps cannot charge once the car is turned off.
Hope this information helped you!

My tom tom wont charge it was working just fine, i'm in cal, and now it won't charge, the battery dies, AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I'M GOING TO SUCCESFULLY GET HOME WITHOUT IT

Have you got the in car charging lead for it which plugs into the cigaret socket. This will by pass the battery and should let you use the unit to get home. If not you will need to buy a map. Good luck.

Does not charge in the car

Hi have you checked you cigarete lighter is working in the car if you still have the in car lighter then put this back into the holder and press it down as if you are going to use it then switch the ignition on and wait to see if the lighter pops up if it does check its hot if its not hot or dont pop up then the chances are you have blown a fuse so check all the fuses in the fuse box and replace any that are blown, if how ever it does pop up and does get hot then this would point towards a fault with the lead your using to charge the tomtom so replacing this will then solve your problem

My tom tom one won't charge because the charging unit on the base of tom tom has lost the part that connects to the charger, do I have to buy a new one?

She charges on USB with a PC. If USB port suplies power, not all do.
Seperate home charger for sale.
Or replace original.
I hope you talk apot that cable to cigarette lighter.
Mind you I have a Go 300

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off

One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

Does the cigarette lighter work in the car when you press it in? Does it get hot? If not has the fuse blown for the cigarette lighter?

If that is supplying power you may have a fault in the cigarette lighter to Tom Tom lead. Carefully check the fuse (one of the six bumps) in the plug and make sure it is still intact (use a meter).

If the fuse is OK then the lead itself may be faulty and probably needs to be replaced.

The screen will not switch on

If you plug your Tom Tom into your home computer, you should be able to tell if it's going to turn on. It will charge, plugged in to your computer. If it works that way, you can suspect your lighter/utility plu in the vehicle.

Will not turn on

do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)
