What do you use to charge the tom tom 910 in the house

I am a new tomtom 910 owner/user. I am trying to buy the right a/c charger for the house to keep from running down my battery. I do not know what I need. Please help me. I purchased a wall plug set but it has an small USB connection on the end which does not fit anywhere on my tomtom. Frank

In the box you have a 'desktop' mount. Looks like the windscreen mount without the ******.
Also you will have got a mains power lead.
Plug the lead into the 'desktop mount' (Left hand side) of the stick up bit.
Plug in and put your 910 onto the mount. It will 'Click' into place
The green light will shine to show it's charging.

To release the unit from the mount PRESS in the button in the middle of the screen top rim and lift off.

Remember to turn of the power at the socket to stop wasting electricity

The usb part of the desktop mount goes into your pc so you can connect to TomTom home or just plain old 'back it up'
It is ok to have power switched on or off when connect to the pc, there is no need to unplug the jackplug.

Hope this helps

    You have purchased the wrong charger. You need the jack plug version. USB is only to data transfer on this model
    Available from most good shop

    must be 5v

You can't because tom tom links the user name to the GPS unit so you should contact the previous owner.

Battery not holding charge


hi dave_hanc93

you say its not holding a charge, but is it charging?

plug the charger in and make sure the light is on on the charger, then on the map screen, tap the screen where the satellites are. on that screen on the top right is the charge indicator. is it green and moving from left to right? if not, then its not charging.

try hooking it up to the home dock to your computer and check and see if its charging on the home dock.

let me know how you make out.

turn device over and look for tiny reset button near to power connect strip. then use a blunt safety pin to reset,this should allow you to then turn it on,this works on 500 ,700 ,900 , 510 , 710 , 910 , hope this helps .

My Tomtom 910 is having charging issues.


Hi Evan,

The rubber bungs often come out but it doesnt usually effect the charging although the rubber bung is there to help reduce vibration when used with a mount in a car. I have had many 910's here in the past with the bungs missing but never had any problem with them latching into the mount. I would think your problem is either some other plastic part is worn or broken. However , if you feel that the problem is the bung then I would go with your instinct but you might have to find something else to fit in the hole as parts are not readly available for TomToms unless you buy a whole unit thats faulty to use as parts / spares. Im'e sure something could be made to fit possibly part of an eraser or similar rubber part. You might also be able to use a small rubber cable grommet or similar.
As far as I know , it isnt possible to get a virus on to the TomTom as such but it is possible to get corrupted data on the hard drive ( or SD card with other models ) especially if you download things such as voices etc. I have had TomToms here were owner has downloaded comic voices and the files have caused very strange things to happen with the TomTom. I even had one where a voice file was making it look like the screen was damaged , so , your'e correct in thinking that way. In your case though , I doubt if the dowloaded voices have effected the charging , its more likely the poorly fitting mount thats casuing your problems.
If you manage to get the green light on ( this only shows power is going to the TomTom , it does NOT confirm charging ) then leave it for a few hourse before attempting to turn the TomTom on as that will ensure a resonable amount of charge especially if you battery is very flat.

Hope this helps . ( please rate the above reply if you think its helpful in any way )

Good Luck

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