Re: my tomtom does not turn on

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.

Why does my tomtom 300 car charger keepblowing fuse

Problem with cigarette lighter socket in the car, check fuse under dash/glovebox/bonnet. You'll have to find it, different on cars.
Replace fuse with a 3 amp and try again.

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.

Cracked touch screen on TomTom

Your best option is Ebay

Prices are pretty good and there are a lot of reputable dealers with BRAND NEW parts.

Replacing them is also pretty simple to do yourself but if you feel uncomfortable I am sure a local electronics repair shop could do it quickly and cheaply.

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!
