Unable to turn it on ,only lighted screen and connection ca be seen


First of all, make sure the battery is fully charged. If you're not sure your car charger is working, try charging it with a USB-cable on your PC/Mac.

Once the battery is charged, RESET your TomTom.
Old TomTom's have a RESET button on the bottom. One model has it's reset button hidden under a cover.

Newer devices don't have a reset button. You reset them by "KEEP PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON A LONG TIME"

Try pressing even more then a minute. Eventually you should hear the TomTom "Drumm Roll" (the starup sound), and your GPS would start normally.

If this doesn't work, Try updating the device firmware using a USB-cable and the right software depending your device. Older devices use TomTom HOME, never ones use TomTom MyDrive.

I wish you a lot of succes!

do a proper reset like take the battery out if its optional then press the power button for 30 seconds without connecting the power,if that doent help then you need to reset the software to the factory setting thorugh the menu itself.

Garmin nuvi 40 goes into usb mass storage mode when pluged to charge


I updated my Nuvi 40 with the latest software and it will not reboot into GPS mode with the usb cable connected. It used to work. I have figured out how to get it to charge with a standard USB cable:
1) Power it on.2) Press the battery icon for 8 seconds - it will enter TEST mode.3) Plug in your USB cable from the PC to the Nuvi - the screen will change to say charging.4) Press the power button 3 times rapidly - it will say Charging across the screen and it will go dim and then dark.5) To wake it up and use GPS mode while charging simply press the power button 3 times rapidly, again.
Works Great!

Trouble acquiring satellites


try the reset
Note: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.

with the unit off, try pressing and holding your finger on the low right corner of the screen and slide the power switch to the on position until you see the message "confirm if you really want to delete all user data?" hit yes and let it restart. then it will set up the nuvi again, so follow the prompts.

if that fails, hook up the nuvi to the web updater and get the latest update

(actually i would do this either way)

Screen freezes and display faints


Hopefully the usb adapter just confused the battery. Did you use it this time or a regular plug? Its always best to fully discharge a battery and fully recharge it for the next use. They will lose life and malfunction otherwise. Glad you've had some luck, hopefully it will work just fine now.

Safety lock


Hi there,
Yes, I too have experienced a problem with locking up when I take my TomTom 910 out of the dock after being connected to my computer. I also took my TomTom back to shop and was shown how to do a Hard Re-set on it. Firstly, you have to locate the reset button (which I see you have. Why it is hidden away in such an awkward position I don't know. I carry a pin/paperclip around with me for this purpose!) Press the reset button once until the TomTom screen switches off. Then with the TomTom off press AND HOLD DOWN the On button on top of your TomTom. Keep holding as white computer script appears on the screen. Carry on holding down until the remainder of the script appears to almost fill up the screen with script info and then this stops. Then release the On button and the TomTom icon will appear. After 2 to 3 minutes the TomTom should switch to show the current location map and look for satellites. Locking on to satellites can then take up to 15 minutes by the way.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck!!!

Screen appears to freeze up


Try updating the unit software. A new satellite was launched this year and has been causing problems. The updates from Garmin fix it. Disable the WAAS in the meantime and see if that solves the problem in the meantime.

Garmin c330 freezing


I am happy to say my problem seems to have been solved. I found 3 possible solutions during my search - may need to try all of them to see if it works. 1) Reset by pressing the button under the faceplate. (Did not work for me). 2) Master reset - switch off the unit and press on the right bottom corner of the LCD and switch it on. Release the power button when it powers on, while pressing on the R lower corner. This is supposed to erase all prior data. I could not master reset my unit, for whatever reason. 3) Software update: http://www8.garmin.com/support/collectio... If you are a windows user you will want software version 2.4.1 as of April 3 2007. This worked for me. Thanks.
