Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Tom Tom won't turn off, and the touch screen doesn't work either?

Should I:
a) throw it in the lake
b) reverse over it in the car
c) feed it to the food liquidiser and flush the bits down the loo
or
d) attemopt to fix it?

Worst £135 I ever spent. Why did I buy two? Because one just stopped working, though it restarted whan I had bought the second one!
I could buy a road Atlas for £2!

I would say ALL of the above as the cost of fixing this exceeds the value of the GPS Most of the problems relate to the chip on the motherboard which will require replacement. The charge depenss on how many arms or legs you can afford to lose.
Buy an new one.... Try an Altina mnuch more reliablity and service see Marbella Australia for details... great service, support and a good FAQ page for how to look after your GPS They also have maps for anywhere

Out of those options I would definitely go for b) owing to the satisfactory crunch you will hear when the wheel passes over it. I feel your frustration!

However if you want to post up some more details of the problem we could also try troubleshooting it.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Don't throw it away, what you need to do is go to the Tom Tom side and reload the software as it is corrupt, the X seems to be a common problem with some models

Seeking the repair of my tomtom Go 910


One suggestion is to plug the Tom Tom using the temporary power cord to you home circuit (not the power source from the car). That worked for me. Sometime the Tom Tom shuts down when left in the hot car requiring a reset. Then the best way is to plug in at home and restart. Try it, otherwise I can't help.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.
