Question about Tomtom RIDER GPS Devices

1 Answer

Pls describe the size and type of security screw on tomtom RIDER

Can anyone describe the size and type of security screws that hold the tomrom rider case together?
The internal part of the power connector has broken and topmtom will not repair as out of warranty!!
It is probably an easy repair if I can find the right type of tool to unscrew the case. Then I can get inside and replace a common electrical part.
I have nothing to loose anyway as tomtom will not repair.
Please provide answer if you know?

I have tomtom rider 1.
There are 3 sizes of Torx screws; 3 sets of 2 screws each.
The largest is at the top back. I watched a fellow on YouTube take the back off. That was very helpful.
Someone called that T6 screw. I found a little set of security torx drivers for this.
The 2 bottom corner screws are smaller and then inside that on each side of the door are 2 more (smaller size but longer) screws.
Then carefully take the back off. There are wires connecting the back to the main board.
Take the card out before you try to take the back off.
Hope it works ok for you.

I have a TomTom Rider 2nd Edition. I need to restore the SD card how can I get this done.


You can purhcase the new TomTom Rider 2 map update for $79 from TomTom.
If you have your receipt as proof of purhcase, you maybe able to take it back to the retail store you purhcased it from and see if they can assit you with TomTom.
Contact TomTom customer support directly to see if they can assist you also.
Good luck

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of


If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.

    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.

    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).

    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.

  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on


My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome
