Re: will not turn on

Do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)

The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.

can you connect it to your usb port on your computer? if so try to connect and use it. dont worry about charging it just use it to see if its working ok. i dont know why they put a battery that is not replaceable in those. you must send it back to them to replace, I keep mine on power all the time. check this out first and see if its a malfunction or works ok.

My tomtom will not turn on. I have had it plugged into the car charger for several hours. Help?

try a reset first, i will assume you cant do this, get a clip or pin switch off the unit and remove the sd card, then push the tool into the small reset hole underneath and hold for 15 seconds, then turn your unit back on and replace the sd card, it should then work if not it could be the battery has worn out as they are attached to the charger all the time when driving, hope this helps

if it is not charging in the car then the socket in the car is dead, blown fuse or defective socket..

make sure you're fully charged, remove any optional memory cards (depends on the unit) there should be a reset hole, place a straightened paperclip into the hole and press for 15 seconds.


make sure you're fuly charged, press and hold the on/off button for about 15 seconds until the unit restarts
