SOURCE: touchscreen not working

You may be able to go the TomTom website and download the last update programming. If the problem is software this should fix it.

My 2 year old TomTom gps Via 280 will suddenly not turn on

You will probably find that your internal BATTERY is now well past "its useful lifetime" [around 2 -3 years plus]. The same thing [and symptoms] happened with my 10 year old TOMTOM OneXL.
I was quoted $80.00 [by TT here in Australia] to possibly fix it + the cost of the battery ???
SO I purchased a new TT Via 280 with LIFE-TIME FREE MAPS for just over AU $240.00 ... Works GREAT and better maps as well !!!

Tom Tom suddenly won't turn on. It is 2 years old. Has worked with no problem. Battery continually charged as I drive. Used re-set button to no avail. Need today for a trip!


plug it in to the usb cable to your computer for a few hours, then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds or untill it starts.

after it starts run tomtom home and get the latest updates for it.

if you do not have tomtom home, you can get it HERE just follow the directions after you download and install it on your computer.

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

No power all of a sudden.


Most likely your power cable not working. check the cords for bare wiring (if any metal is hanging out of the rubber insulator). If it is bare then go and get another cord. That should work.

Tomtom GO 700 suddedenly the display was stopped


STEP 1

Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

STEP 2

Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

STEP 3

Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

STEP 4

Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.
