    tomtom 510 does not turn on although the green power button is on. I can swing the cradle and sometimes it turns on and shows a very low battery.

    We've tried charging the battery until fully charged, but reset button doesn't work. Where can we send it for repair.

Contact TomTom. They were helpful to me.
Suggest u monitor battery and get it charged up. Then reset. See if you can reproduce the problem.
They sent me an email with instructions on how to format the disk or card, then reinstall the software. Then they authorized me a new map download (don't format the disk until they assure you that you can have a new map). Perhaps it's also best to  use TomTom Home software on your computer to backup the files on the TomTom incase something goes wrong.

Hi i have a tomtom one classic it dont want to desplay on the screen only on my pc


Can you please rephrase that in the form of a question. When you connect your tom tom to a PC it will show a "do not disconnect unit" screen on the gps unit.

That is how it was designed. You can then update it ect. After it says it's ok to disconnect then you may turn it back on and see the display.

Battery tomtom 700

I took out the battery in my tomtom go 700 by following the information in the links below. These links are for changing the battery in a tomtom 300, but it's all I could find and as it turned out the 700 was almost identical to the 300. Also, there were some good photos that helped. The first link is the instructions and the 2nd link has the photos. Good luck!
