Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver
The spontaneous poweron is a bug in app 8.01. Models with that app tuen themselves on exactly 1 week after they've been turned off. A workaround is to hold the power button forever until you see a black sceen with debug writing on it. Then shut it off and it should stay off.

SOURCE: Charging tomtom XL GPS
It all depends on your computer. The charging current via USB is limited by the computer. Some restrict this to 500mA, others (lap-tops mainly) to 200mA. If the TomTom is turned off, you should get the battery charged in 3 to 6 hours. With the unit on, it can take many times longer as the unit will take almost 200mA from the battery.

Yes , it should be covered by warranty. It's not a common problem but sometimes batteries do fail. It's a bit like when a light bulb goes in your house , you can get a brand new one out of the cupboard , plug it in and it either goes right away or only lasts a short while. Where thats the case the bulb was in fact defective and not fit for purpose. Same with your Tomtom battery . Good luck when you contact TomTom.

I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.

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?
