I generally connect my GPS to the computer with a USB cable and this seems to charge it.

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

My 910 won't pick up a GPS signal - any suggestions please?

Backup the Tomtom to your computer. !!!!!!!!
Format the Tomtom hard disk
Logon to Tomtom home and carry out an update
When it has completely finished updating copy the map directory back onto the root of your Tomtom hard disk.

This action forces the Tomtom home site to completely update the program on your Tomtom to the latest applicable application.
This may involve updating the the bootloader as well as the Navcore software.
The maps will go straight back on ok as they should already have been initialised for that device.

Most new Navcores now incorporate the Quickfix which enables the sattelite signal to lock on quicker.
Regular visits to the Tomtom home website will update the quickfix data which really needs to be done weekly as the data expires.

Pressing the reset button also renders the old Quickfix data useless.

If the above does not work then I suggest that you have a hardware problem which would require a professional repair.

TomTom GO 910 won't turn on.

Two possibilities:
- if someone has used the wrong charger, and connected it to a 12V supply, the mainboard may be damaged. In that case, you need a replacement.
- the battery may be discharged. Even if the green light is on, it doesn't necessarily charge up. Try pushing it hard onto the mount for a few minutes, then see if it will turn on.

Nothing happens when i plug my usb cable into my computer with the tomtom ONE

start tomtom home if it does not start automaticlly when you turn on your tomtom and connect it to your computer..if you dont have tomtom home, you can get it HERE.

if its still not connecting try another usb cable although im not sure in that one disconnects from the home dock on the 910

( i assume your using the home dock because thats the only way a 910 will hook up to a computer)

I have a question concerning the tomtom 910. When plugged into the car, the tomtom goes off and on and the battery is constantly low. However,when I charge it at home, it stays on for about 4 hours. What...

Connect your TomTom to the car charger and turn it on. Tap the lower right hand cornor where the sat. signal graph is. On the screen that comes up check to see if it is chargeing while connected to the car charger. It should say charging in the upper right hand cornor where it shows the battery status. If it isn't charging then you have either a bad pin on your windsheild mount or your charger is not working. If the charger is not working it may be as simple as replacing the fuse in the charger.

Hi my tomtom 910 go wont switch on ], but when useing the charger the little green light lights up and will stil not switch on ive tries the hard resetting and does not work

I've had a similar problem on 2 TomTom 910s.
First, try holding in the reset button while holding the power switch down for 5 seconds.

If that doesn't work, let it charge for 12 hours and while it's still charging, hold the power switch down for 5 seconds.

It worked for me on both

Good luck

TomTom910 not charging

This is a common problem with the 910. Try putting an obstacle in the way of the wire to keep it on. Better still is to not use the home dock at all. Just plug the home charger in to the windscreen mount (device connected of course!) and charge it that way. You get a better charge and it will stay on.

Tomtom 910

I dont think so. The unit runs on 5 volts (why I dont know!!!) so the first thing to fry on a 12v hit is the on-off switch then some of the components. Sorry
