New Tom Tom gps with no battery, won't keep charge from auto

Lost baterry for new gps so it did not get inital 24 hr battery charge. Used it once in car and worked fine. Unplugged it from auto, took inside to prgram, and got msg that it was unconnected (approximate wording). When I charge it in auto, it will only give me inital screen-- won't do anything. Can auto alone charge it? how long to run?. Or should I purchase a battery and where to buy one? Thank you!

  • jassalone May 27, 2009

    do you mean there is no battery charger?

  • jassalone May 27, 2009

    Yes, I meant no batery charger. but in looking online, I see that some units have no battery charger. I am not sure of my model no..

    Perhaps it is one that charges by the cable...I read that some charge by connecting the cable to the computer. If this is the case, where in the computer? Thank you!

My Tom Tom XXL won't turn on when plugged in.

The GPS device runs off the battery ... so, you need to charge the battery (fully, or enough to power the GPS) before you start using it again. For clarity, if the battery is not charged, the GPS will not run when plugged into a power source.

My new Tom Tom will not start past the first screen that shows the name Tom do I get it to operate properly. If I depress the start button for about 14 seconds it goes to a green screen or...

It is likely that your battery is low or nearly-dead, particularly if you haven't used your GPS for a while and it has not been plugged in (to be kept charged). That's why it doesn't start (even if it is plugged in when you're trying to start it up again now). Don't try to repeat the startup (too often) as it will mess up your sw / data (when your battery is low or half dead) You'll want to plug it in (e.g. using your USB or wall adapter) for up to 24 hours or so, to charge the battery. Then start it up and keep it plugged in until your battery is fully charged.

My tom tom 920 keeps shuting down every 2 then give me 10 seconds to yes or no

If the battery is flat or dead it will never go on until you either charge the battery or change it. Batteries have a life of 2-3 years if used correctly.
That is charged using an AC source and definitely not starting the engine while the unit is plugged in.

1. Ensure that the battery is fully charged.

2. Try with different battery to determine whether the issue is with the battery or with the GPS device.

Hope this will help you.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

Tomtom only charges on fast charger base. Why?

if it is not charging in the car then the socket in the car is dead, blown fuse or defective socket..

Set time

Go through the menu and you will see options for time or clock. It is probably set on 24 hr clock and this is why it is 12 hours out. If you have a choice of 12 or 24 then choose 12. If you have to use 24 hr ensure that you reset the time as 1300 hrs for 1pm,1400 hrs for 2pm etx.It will be shown as "time format"

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.

Battery not holding it's charge

I worked out that the car charger must take a while if the unit is completley flat... therefore I plugged it into my laptop and it took the charge....and is holding it...laptop must charge it quicker...
