Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Switch off/on My 910 won't turn off, and displays a screen with basic device parameters, such as BootLoader Version; CPU IDA etc. I've tried nuerous resets, no luck. It does not show as connected to my computer through the dock, so I can't fix it that way. Any ideas, short of leaving it on until the battery dies? Thanks, Andy

If TomTom Home isn't installed on the computer, you can go to to download the latest version. You'll be walked step-by-step through the downloading and installation procedures. Once that's installed on your computer, you may continue. - Plug the home charger into the wall and into the home dock - Plug the home dock into the computer through a USB port - Put the unit on the home dock, but keep it turned off - Go to - Scroll down to the first download choice "Window Update" - Turn your unit on - Run the file May 06 Update, no need to save it, ignore TomTom Home asking you to update - After the program runs, turn the unit off - Disconnect the unit from the mount, turn it back on, and reconnect it - Go to - Run the Clear Flash Tool, no need to save it - Open TomTom Home and click 'Download Your Updates' in the first column at the top if it's not there already - There will be a Program Application available for download, say 'OK' - After item is downloaded it will ask you if you want to install the downloaded items, say 'OK' - Using 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in your toolbar, safely disconnect your GO 910 - You may need to reset the device once or twice ( - The unit should now boot up with no problems If you have any further questions or comments, please e-mail or call us at 866-486-6866 Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00 PM EST.

Switch on

Have you tried resetting the unit? There is a small reset button on the back at the top. Put a small pin or a paperclip in the button, and press it for a few seconds. This should reset the unit.
