Transfer of live updates for a replacement unit.

I have received a replacement "Tomtom Go 1005", as the previous units screen was blank and did not switch on. I purchased new live services in October 2013 for the replaced unit. The live services on the replacement unit has all expired (Expired 06.11.2013). How do I transfer the live services from the old device to the new device? (Old serial number SP5152G01870) (new serial number SP5152G00810)

If you have the programs downloaded from tomtom home then you need to copy them to the sd card that you purchased. In the home program you can choose to install the programs and map to the sd card. It takes a bit of a search to get the tomtom home program understood. The credit card with the codes is an authorization code for the program.

SOURCE: TomTom 520 won't start

Hi all,
I got the following response to this little problem. Will try it out and hopefully my 520 will work again soon.

To ensure that your device is correctly connected to your PC, please do the following:-

STEP 1 Run the Registry Cleaner Tool

• Disconnect the TomTom and remove any USB devices from your PC, If you use a USB Hub, please disconnect that also.
• Run the RemoveRegEntries tool. You can download it from :-http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 2 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
• Connect the TomTom to a USB port on the back of your PC. We strongly suggest that you use a USB 2.0 port and not a USB 1.1 Port. (USB 2.0 ports are faster USB ports, which are standard on all modern PC's, older PC's and some laptops may still use USB 1.1 ports which are slower and can prevent some USB devices from connecting properly).

STEP 3 Switch the TomTom On.

• On your PC, open My Computer
• Now switch the TomTom On while it is connected to the PC with the green light on.
• Look at My Computer, do any disk drives appear as you switch the TomTom On? If so, which drive letter is it?
• Double click on the TomTom disk.
• What files and yellow folders do you see?, please make a note of them and reply back with what files and yellow folders you see. If possible, please provide us with a screenshot showing all the details.

If the device is NOT listed as a 'Removable drive' under 'My Computer' when you switch the TomTom On, try the following:-

STEP 4 Check Device Manager

• Disconnect the TomTom from the computer.
• It is likely that you have a Firewall on your PC, in some cases, Firewalls can prevent USB devices from being recognized by the PC. We suggest configuring your Firewall and security settings to allow all USB devices to connect to your PC. Once you have done this, we suggest trying the steps above again.
• Go to 'Start' and right-click on 'My Computer' and select 'Properties'
• Select the 'Hardware' tab
• Expand 'Disk drives'. If the TomTom device is shown there with a red cross, right-click on it and select 'Enable'
• Check under 'My Computer' to see if the device now shows up as a 'Removable drive'.

We also suggest it is a good idea to try to connect your TomTom to another PC to see if you get the same problem.

Has the tomtom go live 1000 have handsfree


I have a Go 1005 (Europe). Much to my surprise, it paired with my Nokia 5230 almost instantly and downloads/refreshes the phonebook each time I turn it on. That in itself is interesting because connection repeatedly failed with my previous Go730 and emails to TT and Nokia resulted in "Not our problem" replies from both companies (as usual leaving the paying customer up the creek with no paddle!).

Anyway, it works hands-free which means I can make/receive calls legally but despite setting the Go 1005 to display SMS text when it arrives, that does not work. The funny thing is I got the SMS to work (sometimes) on my old Go 730!

White Screen


The "White Screen of Death" was a problem plaguing the TomTom One V3 about a year ago. This was brought up in another FixYa thread here- http://www.fixya.com/support/t192218-blank_white_screen

As the solution suggests, call the manufacturer and you can easily have it fixed/replaced

Blank screen


Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.

If its NEW take it back!

contact tomtom about the problem...

White Screen on GPS after downloading an update from TomTom Home


Just had the same problem. To fix it I uninstalled the existing application and reinstalled - there were two updated applications available, one for "GO, ONE and Rider" and the other for "ONE" only - reinstalled the first one again, this time installing anyway when warning about a newer version already being installed was given. If you are having problems getting unit to talk to PC, connect the USB cable to PC, press reset, remove SD card and reinsert then switch back on. TomTom Home should then see the unit and you can try the suggestions above.

Frozen tomtom


Try the reset button on the hole in the bottom of the unit. I had a frozen unit after attempting to upgrade and this made it work. Use a paperclip to press into the hole, it will reset the unit.
