Question about Tomtom ONE XL GPS

1 Answer

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational units. I plugged the adapter in the tomtom and the screen went black and I have been unable to turn it on since. It charged overnight (both indicator lights on)and i tried a soft reset with no luck. Is it shot?

More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

REPLACMENT CORD


TomTom recommends that youvisit their website to find the approved car chargers. There is a reason for that. The devices that have Lifetime Traffic update use the charger chord as an antenna to receive the traffic information.
If you are willing to lose that capability then things are simpler. Check the cable terminal that goes in the device. The end is one of two types USB mini B or USB micro B. Any car charger that has the correct end will do. But you lose the traffic updates.

My Tom Tom XL 325 wont hold a charge while left off


Hi, leaving the unit in the cradle exposed to the sun during hot days has been known to fry the battery causing loss of battery capacity. perhaps this could be your problem. I replaced the battery in my last GPS 4 times because of this before I analysed the problem. This will most likely be outlined in your user manual too. You might also compare the output capabilities between your blackberry and tomtom charger - it is entirely possible that you are starving the unit of a decent charge if the blackberry charger is not to the same current capacity as the tomtom charger.

How do I charge the TomTom XL 330


Hi There!

You Can charge your Tomtom when you drive, or you can charge it with a USB port on your computer.
I don't think they come with a mains charger anymore?

Power specifications need in car charger / lead


The device must be charged with 5v and 2A.
As long as the generic charger suplies those values,
you should be fine...
