    Hi... my Tom Tom GO 700 also stopped working. I have tried resetting it but to no avail. Is there anything that can be done to get this unit up and running again.

    Thanks....Glorico

    Our tom tom 710 doesn't seem to charge and hold power from any of the sources(mains, desktop or car). I have tried resetting the TT 710 with paper clip and then switching the unit on and holding the button down for 5 secs. But the on/off button doesn't seem to engage and no power seems to holding in the unit. Anybody any ideas please?

It worked for me (for the second time). Any ideas why the GPS stops working? It looks as if this is not a very durable piece of equipment.

The 15 seconds reset and 5 seconds power-up were key!

No signal


Hi,it is possible that the receiver has given out, check to see if it is within manufacturers warranty, if it is then the manuf should fix it for free.

Save all your routes etc before sending it back as it will most certainly get wiped and factory loaded.

External antenna may help

I have had my GPS( TOMTOM One) on Waiting for Signal for 2 weeks now and I finally fixed it.

My symptomtoms (word play) were no signal at open areas, when connected to Tom Tom Home it showed exactly where I was and worked through the PC but when disconnected back to the same thing.

I called Tom Tom CS and nothing, Flash did nothing, factory defaults nothing, and updating did nothing.

What I did:
I charged the unit completely.
I took a paperclip and while off pressed on the reset button at the bottom by SD slot. I held it there for 30 Mississippi's.
I did not turn it on after letting go.
I went outside to my car (parked on roof of parking lot) turned it on and set it on my dash vertically.
I left and came back in 1 hour and It is working perfectly!.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya...

My tomtom won't turn on when I've charged it for several hours in the car and now at my computer. The green light is on but I still can't get it to turn on.


try the usb cable to your. this is the recommended method to charge a tomtom2.gif when it wont power on. for reasons unexplained by tomtom they do not recommend the car or house charges.

plug it in via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours(make sure the green light is on and nice and bright) then press and hold the power button(this could take up to 20 seconds)

Tom Tom turns on and then shuts off (cannot update my device)


You don't say what version tt you have but I would connect it to the pc and not turn it on. Just let it charge for a couple of hours. Then you should be able to turn it on and do an update.
Hope this answers your question.

Try giving it a full charge. I used different model Tom Tom that would not turn on even if plugged in until after the battery was recharged.
