Question about Tomtom GO 510 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tomtom go 510 battery won't charge and unit will not switch on

I don't particularly want to buy an after market battery (£16 incl. postage) in case that doesn't solve the problem.

I am able to delve inside if there is a fix available - I just want my TomTom working again! (Not bothered about using it 'on battery'.)

I would have a TOmTOm again as I love the system.....

Thanks Claire

SOURCE: My TomTom 510 will not hold charge and now cannot be switched on

If you are not bothered about using it on battery your tt should work if you have it hooked up to a external power supply such as the car charger or home charger. If it doesn't work using either of the power supplies then your problem is deeper than just needing a new battery. Check the pins on the bottom of your tt to see if they are bent, or out of place. The most common problem for them is the negative pin on the far left with the lcd screen facing away from you gets bent or is not making contact even though the green light is on.
Hope this helps

Wont charge green light only


well good luck with the cost of doing that its not a DIY job there are lots of traps for thr uninitiated inside the 910. Its almost a better option to buy a new GPS. TomTom ar built to a price and have many problems. There are over 180 problems with TomToms liasted and in lockdown on this site alone.
If you decide to buy a new GPS that is better serviced and less problems look at the Altina A860 or the 8010 on Marbella australia Site. prices are good too, contact them for their price and freight to your location and the maps you would neede for your location. I have only ever had to update maps and the occasional battery for these units compared to somje others including TOMTOM. Circuit board is $90 + labour and postage

My tomtom go 510 geen light says its charged but when you switch it on it just switches its self back of.Have replaced the battery but it is still doing it,has anyone else had this problem and what was the...


Using a OHM meter set it to check for continuity. Turn the unit upside down with the charger contact pins closest to you. Using the red (+) probe touch the solder joint directly below the gold contact pin on the far right and the black (-) probe to the gold contact pin directly above. Next do the same thing to the solder joint and gold contact pin to the far right. If you don't get continuity on either pin there is your problem. This can be fixed but it requires taking the unit apart and having some solder skills.
Hope this helps.

Battery replacement for TomTom 710


I have found a trick for those bad battery ,but you lose your waranty
you need to open your tomtom , behind the screen you wil find the battery(for the Go 710 it is an 3.7 V ,2400mAh,samsung ICR18650-24)
you find 3 wires : red, black,yellow cut them of at the half of the wire size
, then cut off your car loader wire (tomtom)(5v), you will see again 3 wires inside :red,black,white
connect the red with red, black with black, white with yellow
(the best thing is to make a little hole in the cover to pass the wire, so it will be beter for closing the all thing)
I did it and it works pretty fine ,I had save 30 dollars ;) :D
I did in approximatly 30 min
remember you will have no battery any more and no waranty of tomtom!
It only whorks then with your car loader tomtom
