The flashing red circle with the X is a result of the unit becoming disconnected before all data was sent to the device. TomTom has a solution for it on their website here

It is quite common tomtom bug.
Do: 1. backup restore or 2. copy all original SD files to your new formated SD card. Restart TomTom and see if it works.

I have a tom tom 720 after connecting it to my computer. it will not turn on a white cross in a red circle keeps flashing

Ah, another case of the Red X. No worries, it can be fixed. Most likely your connection was interrupted during an installation or removal of software features. Follow this guide to get your TomTom back up and running.

Flashing x

Connect yout tomtom to the computer. Go to my computer and open the tomtom drive to see if anything is there. You may have cut and paste instead of copy and paste. If this is the case format your tomtom drive and reload your backup.
Hope this helps.
