My tomtom go510 will not turn on

My Go 510 was in the glove box for a few days and now it won't turn on. Charging light works. It has not held a charge as long as when new.

    I'm not asking how to charge it up, I've had it for three years now. What I'm saying is that it won't turn on even when sitting on the charger base or plugged into the car charger for days.

Keep it powered up my tomtom go510 will not turn on - 212_lifestyle.jpg The TomTom GO 510 and 910 are designed to automatically switch off when it detects an absence of power from the car charger. The device assumes that the driver has stopped and therefore has turned off the engine. This feature is designed to save your TomToms battery power and prolong its life.
However, we’ve noticed that some devices can react too sensitively to power disruptions like bumps in the road. Also, some users have told us that they don’t care, they don’t like this feature because they don’t necessarily want to turn their devices off.
Fortunately, we have a fix for you.

Have a nice day.

    Well if its not charging up even after sitting on chargers for days is a sure battery problem. Please try to check it with another set of batteries.

We have a tomtom GO510 and we called and the person said our software needs upgrading and she said there would be no charge for this

You need to go to the TomTom web site and register, then you can download the necessary software install that and THEN & only then connect up your GPS, with the USB cable, & turn on. Then you will be able to update it. Via the internet.

Tomtom go510 does not power on

TT 510/710/910 have similar problems with having it on while not used for a long time. The battery is not charged because of a low voltage on it. The easiest is to turn the device apart, and short-circuit it with the power adapter. After around 15-30mins it should get to a higher level, and then start charging normally. The ultimate solution is not letting it discharge to 0... :(
