Question about Tomtom VIA 1535T GPS Receiver

Open Question

Tomtom via wont charge when connected to car port even though the green light on the charger comes on. I have taken the car to multiple auto shops and they test the port and say it is well grounded and has voltage. If I take the same GPS and charger to my other car, it works just fine.

My TomTom 920 turns on in my car but when connected to the car charger the charging light does not come on and the device displays a bottle symbol and turns off


It sounds like the Car adapter is bad, try charging through the USB port on your computer to see if the unit charges. If it does you will need a new car charger - try ebay.

Good Luck

Tom tom xl does not turn on. been on charge all night and using car charger still makes no difference


try the usb cable to your. this is the recommended method to charge a tomtom when it wont power on. for reasons unexplained by tomtom they do not recommend the car or house charges.

plug it in via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours(make sure the green light is on and nice and bright) then press and hold the power button(this could take up to 20 seconds)

Tomtom wont charge.


If it is charging via a USB connection on your computer there is nothing wrong with the TT. It doesn't matter if you are trying to charge via USB, mains, or car charger the connection is the same for all in your TT. I would look elsewhere for the problem. More than likely your car charger is faulty.

I just plugged it into my cigar lighter in the car,the lead got hot and the tom tom went off,when I got home I charged it up only to see green light.


Unfortunatly this is a well known problen with the tt one car charger. When the car charger went bad it sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a couple of diodes on the board. Even though the green light comes on this is just an indication that power is available not that it is charging. Sorry to say but all you have now is a paper weight. Try selling it on ebay. People will buy it for spare parts.

TomTom will not charge with car charger


Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.

Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.

Will not charge


I have a similar problem and I think I solved it (orr found a way to work around it). It looks like the contacts are not connecting firmly so even though the green light may be on, the charging conneciton is not made. With the tomtom on your home dock from the front page on your tomtom, touch near the lower right of the screen on the satellite strength indicator, this should bring up a screen where it shows (among other things) your batter status at the top right. If it is charging, the word charging will be under the battery strength indicator. Just play with it until you get the word "charging" to appear under the picture of the battery.then HANDS OFF until it is charged. I doubt this will be successful with the car charger since the movement of the car will likely jar the connection loose. Good luck.
