    reset for 510

  • Anonymous Nov 06, 2007

    my tomtom GO 510 will not turn off. I tried loading Australian maps onto it and it did not work

  • Referee Nov 28, 2007

    I am having trouble with my 510. The machine fires up and gets stuck at the tom tom page and will not go any further, I have tried the reset button and it turns the screen black and nothing else happens, if I turn it off again it then resets itself and goes through the same process.

    For other tomtom its under the bottom of the tomtom , look for a very little 1mm hole in the plastic near to the multipin connector ( its a small hole only 1mm diameter ). Use a paper clip to push the button. It clicks when you press it . Do not press too hard or you can jam the reset button permanently in , and you don't want to do that ! Contrary to what other solutions say , you do NOT need to have the charger connected.

My tom tom go stopped working. green light is on car cigarette lighter bit and on tom tom unit but screen wont come on it stays blank. it had just fallen off windscreen onto dashboard. memory card in...

Not sure which model year you have but check for a small reset button on bottom press and hold it with a paper clip or similar. Also try holding the power button for a minute to see if it reboots, try removing the memory card first. If it starts don't insert the memory card until the unit is off. If that still does not work click on the link below which will explain the reset in detail.
Thanks for using FixYa

My tom tom is over 2years. I am not getting a signal. Asks if I am in a building

Mainly the problem with this tom tom one is that it comes up with this problem frequently. The solution to this problem is for you to reset your tom tom by holding the reset button for a while, after doing that, it will reset it and it will be able to receive signals.
Solution: Reset the tom tom by holding down the reset button for a while, it will reset it and then it will be able to receive signals once again. To reset: check that your battery is properly charged, by plugging it for at least two hours, make sure the charging light is on. Then you press and hold the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, then it will restart the system for you.
Be sure to have your tom tom in a car or in a outside position where it can receive signals from the satellite.
This should do the job.

I downloaded the US-Canada map update and now i turn my TomTom on and it says i cant us that map and now i cant even use the device is there someway i can restore the device back to default?

You could try reseting the device

1) Turn the device off.

2) Press the Reset button located on the bottom of the device (you'll need a paperclip to do this).

3) Turn it back on. See if it works now.


1) Do you have Tom Tom Home set up on your computer?

2) Did you ever make a backup?

If so, now is the time to restore from backup.

To restore factory settings:

1) Turn on Show All Menu Items in the Preferences menu.

2) Tap the Reset Factory Settings button (it's on the last screen of the Preferences menu).

Best of luck to you.

My tom tom won't turn on. While charging it, the green light goes on, but pressing the power button does nothing. It's just dead. Is there a solution?

I had the same problem with the go 920, I thought it was broken, 
Solution was to insert pin into reset hole for 15 Sec, after which hold the power on button for at least 5 Secs

Will not turn on

do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)
