Question about GPS

1 Answer

Tried to download Tomtom Maps but failed twice. As the battery was down a little, I decide to charge it, at the end of which, switch the GPS on again. It came on for about 30 seconds - but showing only - the rear view of a Go GPS, then lost that picture. The 'ON' green light still showed but the device would not activate. When disconnected from a power source - car or house supply - the green light does not show. I tried another limited charge - with the light showing of course - but still no activation. I'm wondering if it may be an internal battery failure? Email:

    Hi Muzzi 123

    While we both thought it might be the battery, it is, after upgrading, working at the moment. I followed the text and it seems to have done the job. Mind you, the Go 700 looks a very different now. I have entered a new route okay, so thanks for your help. But keep everything crossed.

    it looks like there update was not correctly installed, if it is working now that's good, but to be on the safe side you need to install the same update again to ensure that there are no files missing.

I have a new TomTom Go 2535 that is reading No Maps Found! I have tried a hard reset with no luck. The TomTom seems frozen. Can you help me...

Usually, you'll want to connect a new TomTom GPS to your computer, and (using TomTom HOME), register the device and get the latest maps (downloaded and) installed on your GPS.
Then, you'll have maps on your GPS.

My TT One is a couple of years old and I reciently have been given wrong directions. Twice I have been out of town and it has lead me to an open lot. Wsa very scary since it was at night and I was alone...

At couple years old you should look for new upgraded maps for your device. Go to TomTom web site and search for maps.

For little more than the cost of new map, you might want to buy a new GPS (with newer maps and more features) as costs have gone down.

TomTom 910 - when I turn the deice on the logo

Letting the battery run down will not fix it, so recharge it. I suspect your maps have become corrupted or at worst deleted. Reinstall your maps from the CD or by contacting TOMTOM and quoting your licence number for a download.
Leaving GPS in car subject to extreme heat will danage the card and often the maps. Gloveboxes are not exempt either as they often reach over 50C when car is left in the sun. ( assuming it is summer wherever you are)

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I dont know how to update my GPS to down load maps on it?

TomTom has probably the easiest solution -- you can update and download maps via their TomTom Home software, which works on both PC and Mac. or you can check this link ... hope this helps appreciate by rating it

Tomtom fault

Having upgraded my Tom Tom ONE Europe with the latest application download and the latest Europe Maps, the device will not now switch on using battery power. The battery is fine, but the device will only switch on when power is present at the USB port. As I performed the two upgrades one after the other I do not know which introduced the change (poor practice by me I'm afraid!) No solution as yet.
