    Guess What? I found a partial solution. Tell your daughter to put into the computer the cd that came with the Tom Tom One and then use the cable that came with the Tom Tom One with the two ends that look similar, however, one side goes in the Tom Tom and the other into the computer and the computer recharges the Tom Tom One! It doesn't let you know it is charging. It just asks you if you want to be connected to the computer and you hit yes. That is sooo strange to me. But, I find that it doesn't keep the charge and it takes about 4 hours to charge. Way too long. The cord that goes into the cigarette lighter does not recharge it. It only does the connection. I think they need a new solution to this problem. If you find out anything else please let me know for a faster easier recharge.

    I have tried recharging on my computer but i think the tomtom one is faulty as the light only flickers when the cable is touched.Seems like i have a bad connection.

    i have had my TomTom One since last August and usually have no problem with recharging it. But yesterday the connection (cord) to the navigator got stuck inside and snapped off. Being under wanantee i took it back and they just said i had to buy another one myself because they would have to buy 50 recharges. What do you think i should do? $430.00 in less than a year of using it and i should buy another charges seems a bit stiff!

I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.

Motorola charger will work. Must be a USB style charger with a plug like the one for the Motorola Razor phone.

I just discovered that my Sony Walkman AC charger fits TOMTOM XL 335.S perfectly, allowing me to recharge without having to be plugged into the vehicle cigarette lighter. This is great because I can plug in at night and be ready to go the next morning without having to worry about a low battery.

Apparently there is a mains power adaptor you can get as an accessory for the TomTom ONE. My daughter is having the same problem - her system is completely dead and she has spent the last 2 days in Liverpool getting completely lost!!

Can the Tomtom recharge wheh the car is not in use - eg in the garage


No, then tom tom cannot recharge when the car is not on. You need to turn on the car before your tom tom can charge. The battery gets to charge the tom tom when in use. Once the car is turned off the gps will not charge. You can try out a practical by turning off your car and plugging the gps to see if it will work. Or the cigarette lighter, does it work when the car is turned off. Since the cigarette lighter does not turn on when the car is off, then it means it gps cannot charge once the car is turned off.
Hope this information helped you!

Tom Tom XL battery died and now placing onto computer to recharge and it doesn't seem to be responding - what should I do


Leave it on charge on the computer and if it does not still come on, then you try to fix it in another gps device and try to charge it on there, if it still does not hold a charge, then it means you will have to replace the battery, because the cells are weak and cannot hold a charge.

Big Red Blinking 'X', device stops working


Don't throw it away, what you need to do is go to the Tom Tom side and reload the software as it is corrupt, the X seems to be a common problem with some models

My tom tom go920 wont hold a charge. from the car or cpu


Try recharging the battery in the car, and also at home with the USB cable.
If you see that it does not hold charge in both case, then you may conclude that the battery is defective. You should compare the TomTom claims with the actual result.

If battery is defective, you should be able tp replace it. Go to the TomTom onlibe store.
