Question about Tomtom XXL GPS
I bought this device brand new. Everything in the box looked as though it had never been tampered with. After leaving it plugged in for several hours, the screen still does not respond to any kind of touch. Stylus, fingertip, fingernail, or otherwise. When I plug it directly into my computer via USB port it says "Wil u koppel aan 'Rekenaar'?" and when I un-plug it, and let it run on battery alone, or plug it directly into my vehicle, via cigarette adapter, it says "Afrikaans?" |NEE| |JA| I have no idea what it wants. And actually, since I can't hit either button (I've tried) I suppose in a way, it doesn't matter what it wants. Is there a way to reset this device? Is my touch screen broken? It couldn't possibly need to charge for even longer, could it? (the manual says it only needs 2 hours. it's had way, way more than that.)

If the problem exists both when you use the vehicle power connector and the usb cable to your computer, then you have to assume that the problem is with the socket on the One. If it's still in warranty, I would send it back to Tom Tom for repair. Contact customer support for repair information.

If it is plugged into the car, you use the DC charger. You can charge it using the usb port on your computer as well. In the accessories section of tomtom.com you will find an ac adaptor as well that can be purchased to charge it to an electrical outlet.

SOURCE: low battery, won't charge
connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.

Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
