It is my understanding that a fine layer of corrosion can form over the contacts on the mounting dock and/or the TomTom itself after a period of outdoor exposure. A white course rubber eraser is the perfect instrument to remove that corrosion without excessive wear to the contacts. This is an old computer repair trick that I used on various computer cards. This is just an inexpensive trick to try. Hope it helps.

No, if the dispay is missing then either the dispaly chip is cooked or the plug has disngaged from vibration. TomTom are not much good on a motor bike at anytime

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on


My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

Pls describe the size and type of security screw on tomtom RIDER


I have tomtom rider 1.
There are 3 sizes of Torx screws; 3 sets of 2 screws each.
The largest is at the top back. I watched a fellow on YouTube take the back off. That was very helpful.
Someone called that T6 screw. I found a little set of security torx drivers for this.
The 2 bottom corner screws are smaller and then inside that on each side of the door are 2 more (smaller size but longer) screws.
Then carefully take the back off. There are wires connecting the back to the main board.
Take the card out before you try to take the back off.
Hope it works ok for you.

Tomtom rider1 connection problems


Put two pieces of tape on the bit of the unit that slides onto the bike mount thus bringing the unit closer to the pins. Worked for me.

Tomtom rider 1 not charging when on bike


TOMTOM are VERY aware of this problem. but deny it is an issue!
I had the same problem, they sent me a new shoe after weeks of emails. I told them that the shoe is not the problem, it's the connector on the back of the TT1. Because of the springloaded pins fitted to the shoe and the poor quality connectors on the TT the normal vibration on a motorcycle causes the pins to wear holes in the connectors on the TT causing intermittant connection.
As the cost of repairing or replacing these connectors is very high and there are a large number of units that would require this repair TT are ignoring it.
I'm now looking at a way of bypassing the connector altogether.
A temporary solution appears to be to smear the contacts on the back of the rider with a little petroleum grease or WD40 - seems to work for a couple of weeks at a time.

Tom tom rider version not charging via bike cradle either via direct connection to the bikes battery or when connected to an aux power socket. There is also no sound while attached to the car cradle /...


I recently had a bit of success with TomTom. My TomTom Rider 1 did not charge on the bike cradle, there is a known problem with the early cradles. TomTom have developed a TomTom Rider 1 replacement cradle (updated) and if you push hard they will wend you one in the post free of charge.
