My Tom Tom one xl iq routes has frozen on the continue screen how can I fix it ?


What you need to do is to reset your unit. To reset your device, First check that the battery is properly charged. Allow the tom tom charge for about 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

Reset your device by using a straightened paper clip or something similar to push the reset button for about 15 seconds.

Then you turn on your device by pressing and holding the power button for about 15 seconds. The picture of where the reset button is on your device is shown below.

Tip

TomTom GPS battery discharge when off


With the TomTom GPS units, if you use it infrequently, you may often find the unit has a dead battery when you go to use it.
This is because turning the Tom Tom off normally with the power button doesn't actually turn it off fully, but instead puts it in a standby mode.
Even though the screen is off and it appears to be shut down, it's still using some power to maintain configuration settings.

If you know you won't be using it for a long period of time, you can press the reset button on the bottom of the unit (this can be done while it's off), and it should put it in shutdown mode, where the battery will not be drained so rapidly. If you do this, you can confirm it's in the shutdown mode by tapping the on button. This normally will power up the Tom Tom, but in the shutdown mode, it will not do anything. To wake it up from the shutdown mode, press and hold the power button for a few seconds, at which point it should turn on and greet you with the Tom Tom drums. It takes quite a while to boot up from this mode, which is probably why they defaulted to the suspend mode instead of a true "OFF" state.

For some of the newer units, they've omitted the reset button, so the process is a little different. Instead of pressing the reset button, do the following:
with the unit on, press and hold the power button. The shutdown screen should appear, but continue holding down the power button for another 12 seconds after the screen turns off. Timing is a bit touchy, because if you hold it too long, it'll end up just rebooting, and then you'll have to try again.
If you're successful in the shutdown, you can test it by briefly pressing the power button. It shouldn't turn back on with just a short press. If it comes on with the tap on the power button, you'll have to try again.

This whole process is a bit of a hassle, and extends the turn on time greatly, so you'll want to plan ahead when doing this, and just shut off normally if you expect you'll be using it within a couple days. However, the long boot up is preferable to having a completely dead unit when you need it, especially if you're away from a power plug...

On the map display touch the screen once

Look for the spanner / wrench icon and touch that once.

Kepp using the Right arrow until you see RESET FACTORY SETTINGS

Touch YES.

That should make it as you bought it.

My tom tom will not turn on.I have taken the card out pushed a paper clip into the reset hole held it for 20 secs held the on button down but it still will not start up its two years old but hardly used


You may need a new internal lithium rechargeable battery.
There are are many parts available on the internet for TomTom. Ebay is a good start.

You can also google for answers on how to disassemble the unit, but there are plenty of answers on this website for the TomTom GPS.

Cheers,
Steve
