    My six month old TomTom one lost power. When I try to rersets it came back for an hour and hen shutoff for good. The cigarette adaptor got so hot it started to smell. I tried to run it off internal battery power and wasn't succesful. I opened the box and found a resistor burned I think. The rest looks fine with no sign of overheating. Now, I think the problem must have been with the entry power point. I am not fully sure the device is broken, the battery is gone or that is repairable at all. Any hints as to what is next? Warranty I can't since I lost the original bill of sales. I liked the unit, but I am hesitant about buying another one the same.

Call tomtom and tell them about the lighter adapter. If it's still under warranty, they will send you a new one. I have had a problem with the lighter adapter twice now. I'm beginning to think they have a faulty adapter .....

My daughter had this problem and it actually turned out to be the cigarette lighter connection. The fuse needed changing and bingo all working well now! Check you have a green light on the charger cable going into your cigarette lighter - if you dont its probably the fuse.

If the car charger is OK, it is probably the battery. I had a similar problem - could only get a few minutes of use from my GO 700 under battery power.

The battery though, I regret to say, is not intended for replacement by the user. I did manage to do it, but the excercise is not for the timid! Unless you have some electronics repair experience it is a TT repair facilty job.

Why does my tom tom keep going the shut down page every 10 seconds I have pressed reset but makes no difference I ride bmw r1200rt


One possible cause is that your battery is low or the battery can no longer hold a (good) charge. In this case, the TomTom is shutting down because there's not enough battery to keep it running, even though it is plugged into a power source.

To determine if the battery is the cause, try to charge the TomTom battery .... using a (USB) connection to your computer, or a direct power source (i.e. while the TomTom is not being used). Let it charge for a few hours until the batter charge indicator shows that it is fully charged (or just leave it charging overnight).
Then, unplug the TomTom from the "charger" and power it up. If the TomTom (battery) doesn't hold a (good) charge, the device will shut down within a few minutes, e.g. 10 mins or much less.
When you (then) plug the device into a power source, and it doesn't stay on (i.e. it keeps shutting down after 10 seconds), you can safely conclude that the battery is the cause of your problem.

Green light on but will not switch on


plug in your xl via the usb cable to your computer and let it charge a few hours, then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

do not use the car or home charger to intially charge your xl. they are to maintain the battery, not a rapid charge.

let me know if you need further help.

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.

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.

Tomtom problem


When you turn off the device with power button, you actually set the device in stand by mode, not fully turned off.
This state will drain the battery.

The only way I know to turn device fully off, is to do a reset with paperclip at bottom of device...

How do I charge the TomTom XL 330


Hi There!

You Can charge your Tomtom when you drive, or you can charge it with a USB port on your computer.
I don't think they come with a mains charger anymore?

TomTom 910 charger question


Yes, you can.
I presume the charger has an USB connector.
5v and 2A are the correct figures for a Go910.
