Question about Tomtom ONE 3rd Edition GPS

1 Answer

Screen is blank, shorted out?

Screen went blank when I plugged it in. I have a universal plug cord I got from Radio shack and it was working fine. I think I may have had the prongs backwards when I plugged it in.

Is there a fuse I can replace or do I need to send it in for repairs?
How much would it cost?

If you had the prongs backwards, you probably blew the input diode. I don't know of anywhere other than Tom Tom for service on these.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

My magellan screen went blank and I can't get it back on even with the cord plugged in......I was told to hit the little reset button on the bottom of the device that that hasn't helped. Any suggestions?


you might have a bad power connector (usb port) but lets assume its ok for now. plug the gps in to its charger and let it alone for a few minutes, then hold the power button for up to 15 seconds. if that doesnt work, keep it plugged in to the charger and then try the reset again holding it for about 10 seconds. if neither of those work, either the power connector is bad or the screen is bad or might just need the ribbon cable reseated.

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational...


More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

Charger


I had the same exact problem! It should plug in to the back of the unit, but it wouldnt charge there either.

What i had to do was goto Radio Shack and buy a Universal Charger for my cigarette lighter that cost $14.00. It has multiple plugs and 'pins'. Find the right one, and set the volt/amp switch to 4 or 6 amps, whatever it says on the bottom of your TOM TOM. The person at Radio Shack helped me, they should be able to help you too!

Thanks,
Mark

Plug in car charger and it shows navigon connected to computer


The problem lies with the fact that a standard mini usb pin-out has + voltage on pin 1 and ground on pin 5. The navigon is programmed to recognize this as a computer. The navigon charger however has + voltage on pin 4 and ground on pin 5. The reason for navigon doing this as opposed to following the standard pin-out is due to the unit requiring a stronger power supply to charge the battery. USB current output on a computer does not have the capacity to do this. As a consequence, you will have to find a charger that has the right pin-out for this device ( + on pin 4 and - on pin 5 ). The tough thing is, there is no way to tell one from the other, they look identical. However, I have found that chargers with a capacity of 1000 ma or greater are pinned-out like above ( + on pin 4 and - on pin 5 ). Other than using a multimeter to verify the pins, the only thing to do, would be to plug it in and see if it works. Hope this helps.
