So long as it is a 12 volt negative ground system then yes. Plug ins are designed for cigarrette lighters in cars.

SOURCE: Tomtom 510 will not activate. tried it with

After posting my problem, I did some more browsing and came across this on the amazon webiste:

31 of 32 people found the following review helpful: stars-4-0._v45457020_.gif Cure for not able turn on the Go 510, 16 Jun 2007 By Sirius (Essex) - See all my reviewsI like the tomtom so far the only niggle was it would not turn on once.
No troubleshooting on instructions, found cure on internet,reset button
underside. With the tomtom turned over and the card slot on top right hand
side there is a small rubber foot at the half moon shaped enterance, up at about the 10 o'clock position from the foot,but before the green circuit
board there is a small half round cut out with a hole under you need to press in this hole for a few seconds with a paper clip to reset. I wonder how many people have sent their tomtoms back that would not turn on.

Tried it & worked a treat!!! Newcastle here we come again ...

SOURCE: Yes i just bought a tomtom navigation system

Yes, It will charge the unit but I would leave it plugged in for about 2 days if you are going to use it when it powers up. I plugged mine in immediately after purchase and used it about 20 min later. the battery should read full charge after a day or two with continued use. Enjoy it!!

SOURCE: My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom

The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home


The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

The Tomtom XXL was unplugged from the cigarette lighter overnight. What do I do to recharge it?


The device can be run from the lighter plug without being charged first. The obvious answer is: plug in the device again; when the car is key is in and electricity switched on, it should charge again.

Most Tomtom devices also come with a standard USB cable or charge cradle with non-standard connector on device end (but USB on the other). It plugs in a PC for use with the Tomtom HOME software and also for charging.

TomTom GO 910 won't turn on.


Two possibilities:
- if someone has used the wrong charger, and connected it to a 12V supply, the mainboard may be damaged. In that case, you need a replacement.
- the battery may be discharged. Even if the green light is on, it doesn't necessarily charge up. Try pushing it hard onto the mount for a few minutes, then see if it will turn on.

Can i first charge my tomtom 330xl on the usb port of my computer


If it is plugged into the car, you use the DC charger. You can charge it using the usb port on your computer as well. In the accessories section of tomtom.com you will find an ac adaptor as well that can be purchased to charge it to an electrical outlet.

Can i plug my tomtom 1 xL in to a 24v cigerate plug


Hello callan_1,

The USB car charger which TomTom makes for the One XL GPS receiver appears to support cigarette lighters with voltage from 12 to 24 volts. If you have this charger you should be able to use it power your GPS.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do I recharge my Tom Tom One?


I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.
