    Hi and thanks for the reply. The Tomtom i have has its card built in and would have to remove the back to get at it. I have a mains charger that i use and the usb cable has been tried. I have now been in contact with Tomtom and they want it sent to them for repair !! Looks like its going to cost me. Will post back when I know more

    Couple of questions:

    1) Do you have an SD card installed in your TomTom? If so, is it an SDHC (secure digital high capacity) card?

    The One XL doesn't support SDHC card, although it may seem to at first; after awhile it will begin acting erratically, rebooting, freezing, searching in vain for satellites, etc. Just replace the SDHC card with a regular SD card and it'll be as good as new.


    2) Have you tried plugging your TomTom into your computer via a mini-USB cable?

    Don't ask me why, but I have found that a computer connection sometimes has the "oomph" needed to jump-start a finicky TomTom.

    Good Luck

My TomTom One V3 won't switch on. The green light shows it as charging but it won't power up. Tried reset as discussed with TomTom


If reset not worked, then must open up, take out battery and then reset, then you must hook up USB and upgrade software, also maybe need to get new battery too, often battery seems OK, but not,.

Tomtom One 3rd Edition will show green light but will not turn on


If you have an SD card in then remove it and try to boot it up.

It is possible that the SD card is corrupt or faulty.

If it does not power up with no SD card then it may well need to go in for repair.

Should you get it to boot without the SD card then back it up straight away.

Reformat your card (preferably in a card reader) and then restore to the card . You should then be able to put the card back in

TomTom will not charge with car charger


Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.

Doesn' t turn on


1. Connect the TomTom to the USB for power (green light should be on).
2. Hit the reset button on the bottom of the device - you should feel it depress slightly.
3. Press firmly and hold the power button and count to 10.
5. Try this a couple of times if it doesn't work the first time.

Even if your battery is ****, the power connection has a pass-through, so you can still use the device as long as its connected to the charger.

Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.
