Question about Tomtom GPS

1 Answer

When the tom tom is fully charged and plugged into the car after a few minutes it just closes down and when I switch it back on , it continues again as though there was not a interuption. It then closes down , showing the shutting down logo.It just keeps doing this everytime I switch it back on again.When I switch it on I do not have to fill in the destination , post code etc , it just carries on from where it shut down. I have connected it to my computer to get the latest down load in case that was the problem.

    I'm looking into it. if it was a setting you can reset that setting by resetting it to factory settings. Also the Tom Tom is plugged to a charger and is not on battery power when this happens?

    Reset factory settings
    This button may only be available if all menu options are shown. To show all
    menu options, tap Show ALL menu options.
    Tap this button to restore the factory settings to your Tom Tom ONE XL. All
    your settings, including Favorites, your Home location, warnings for POIs
    and any Itineraries you have created, as well as recent destinations and
    recent calls and callers, will be deleted.

Why does my tom tom keep going the shut down page every 10 seconds I have pressed reset but makes no difference I ride bmw r1200rt

One possible cause is that your battery is low or the battery can no longer hold a (good) charge. In this case, the TomTom is shutting down because there's not enough battery to keep it running, even though it is plugged into a power source.

To determine if the battery is the cause, try to charge the TomTom battery .... using a (USB) connection to your computer, or a direct power source (i.e. while the TomTom is not being used). Let it charge for a few hours until the batter charge indicator shows that it is fully charged (or just leave it charging overnight).
Then, unplug the TomTom from the "charger" and power it up. If the TomTom (battery) doesn't hold a (good) charge, the device will shut down within a few minutes, e.g. 10 mins or much less.
When you (then) plug the device into a power source, and it doesn't stay on (i.e. it keeps shutting down after 10 seconds), you can safely conclude that the battery is the cause of your problem.

My tom tom one starts then shuts down. Can I fix this?

Sounds like your battery not charged fully. Check your charger unit , possibly fuse in plug faulty or cigarette lighter fuse in car blown.

Does it have reset button not coming on but is charged

You need to use a safety pin to reset the TOM TOM.

The reset button is on the bottom of the unit. It is a very small hole.

Put the pin in there, hold it for a few seconds and that should enable you to turn it back on.

It won't turn on

I just had the exact problem as you did. On the TomTom website mentions that you can press the Turn-on button for 15 seconds to reset it. I tried that and it worked. Maybe it'll work for you too.

Tom tom will not switch on

try charging the tom tom fully and then reset while it is charging. a tom tom will not reset unless the new battery is fully charged which may take some time if you only have a car charger.

please give me a fixya! rating if this helped.

Tom tom one

I experienced the same thing. The battery was fully discharged. Plug the GPS into your USB port or car charger to provide power. Wait about 5 minutes for the battery to get a little charge, then try turning it on.
