Question about Tomtom GO 300 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

TOMTOM Not WORKING

Yesterday when I started my car, my TomTom screen was frozen like it was trying to turn off and then just stopped. I took it out of the head unit (it's in a 2008 Toyota 4-Runner Urban Edition)and tried to manually turn it off. That didn't work so I ejected the memory card. I reinserted the memory card and when I did I turned the unit back on. Ever since then the screen just shows a picture of the tomtom and the memory card going in and out of the unit with a big red "X" on the memory card.

    I did all the steps that the site recommended and it is still showing me the screen with the picture of the tomtom and the sd card coming out and a red "x" being placed over the sd card.

TomTom screen frozen/won't turn off


This is usually an SD card issue. If you have one in then remove it and try again.

If there is no SD card involved then the other cause is that files may have been deleted or somehow corrupted.
In that case you would need to try and restore if you took a backup.
I have a spare card with my original tom tom software on there.

You could always try a HARD reset too !

My tomtom receiver is frozen on the start screen.


Connect your TomTom to the USB cable then turn on your TomTom in that order. Go to "My Computer" and open the drive that is your TomTom. Copy and paste your map folder to the desktop. Delete everything on your TomTom (don't format). After deleting everything on your TomTom. Open TomTom Home. TomTom Home will tell you, you need an application for your TomTom. Let TomTom Home load the application. You will probably have to do this at least 2 times to get the latest application for your device. After TomTom Home has loaded the latest application for your device closer TomTom Home and copy and paste your map back onto your TomTom. You should be ready to go after doing this. Make sure you do not skip a step when doing this.
