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

Hi Jill,

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.

SOURCE: TomTom One XL battery not holding charge

Hi Theresa,

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.

SOURCE: TomTom XL Text-to-Speech not working

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.

SOURCE: 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?

I have a tomtom xl 330. the device will not start up. I tried to update the application. it still does not work. Please help.


A likely cause is that the battery is "dead" ... i.e. no longer holds a charge. The GPS runs on battery power, even if it is plugged in. It will work even if the battery holds a (small) charge. But if the battery doesn't a charge anymore, the device will not start up, even when it is plugged into a power source.

If this is the case, you'll want to change the battery.

I push start button and hold this more than 2 seconds but the starting screen is not opening i also connect to battery charger from car and then pushing again to start but no reaction i have tomtom...


The issue could be a low power in the Tomtom and that is the reason it is not switching on. Now here the problem could be with the charging cable/wire from the car charger which might not be giving power to the GPS. Check for the fuse at the connector.
If the fuse is blown off the power wont goes into the GPS and it wont get charged and wont swich on. Look at the tip of the connector which has that spring like contact. You will be able to turn that to open it and find a fuse. Replace it with the right "amp" as the existing one. You will get one from Radioshack.
If you have already checked it and sure it is charging could be issue with Tomtom itself..Good luckKris..

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

Tomtom1 keeps restarting itself


try resetting it, if that doesnt work, connect your unit to tomtom home. if you dont have tomtom home, follow the link at the bottom.

To reset your TomTom device, do the following:
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

TOM TOM is frozen


To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to
push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot, on the
bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on.
If this helps you plz rate this. Thank you kindly.

Tomtom xl eurpoe switching off


The switching off problem can be generaly be attributed to 3 causes:
  1. Battery is not being charged enough ( charging via USB from a PC will take days ) your charger could be putting out the correct voltage but not enough current.
  2. The battery is on its way out. TomTom batteries have a set lifetime where they gradualy take less and less charge. if your battery capacity is low then you might just have enough power in it to allow the TomTom to start up but then it shuts down again shortly after. ( You can check this becuase if powering the tomtom via a power supply the tomtom should remain switched on ). If this is the case , then it probably proves the battery is the problem.
  3. Faulty software ( very possible ) . I have found that where certain files are corrupted on the SD card the TomTom will shut down at some point in the loading up cycle. The reasoning being that if the TomTom cannot procede with boot up , it will either hang or shutdown or load up incorrectly.
If you made a backup of your SD card then formatting and reloading the files from your PC might cure the problem.

GOOD LUCK
