The screen is frozen.cant find reset button? tom tom one -info written on unit, maybe helpful ?canada 310, also cefc ,5vdc 12A please help me to get this working,please? my name is linda email...

Hi Linda

I had this problem also, the power on button should do the trick if you hold it down for 10 seconds, I had this fault with mine also. I was told that if you do not use them for a while this can occur. I think it is because the battery does not have enough charge in it. If you can leave it to charge up for a few hours at home. also sometimes removing the memory card can unfreeze the screen

Hope this helps, if you are still habving trouble get back to me

Our Tom Tom was working well until we shut it down. Now we cannot get past the introductory page and when we press continue it flickers but does not progress any further

Do not panic when your devices start to malfunction, it is just a minor problem that can be fixed easily. The reason it does not get pass the introductory page is because a file that supports its operation is missing.
What you have to do is to reset your device using a computer. Data transfer might not work properly if the connection to your computer is through a USB hub or keyboard.
  1. Reset your navigation device by holding the power button for about 15 seconds, then it restarts itself.
  2. Connect your navigation device to your computer, then switch on your device.
  3. Tom tom home starts, is the page you first get.
  4. If home offers new application, click 'back',
  5. Delete the tom tom application from your device and computer by clicking 'manage my navigation device',
  6. Reinstall the application by clicking 'update my device',
  7. Safely disconnect your device.
If the device still does not get passed the introductory page then you need to try backing up and restoring your device.
That should do the job.

I get address error for existing residential addresses that the navigation system cannot find.

Hi. You need just "zip" codes simply connect tom tom to computer then find zip folder on yahoo or use this link first post , unzip the folder and copy on tom tom the problem could happen still the best way will be to get new software using for example tomtom home aplication but please copy maps on computer for example western_and_central_europe or just uk that will be only one folder also please make a copy of voices folder at the end just please format tomtom device reboot connect to tomtom home get latest navcore should tell automatically that you need navcore and download it install tomtom home will do this automatically and copy back maps and folder voices with zip codes folder as well. sorry for my bad english

Tom tom cannot detect GPS signal

Install another navigation software (iGO8, Navigon, Destinator, OziExplorer, etc....) and check you problem again.

If you need help or professional GPS-consultation or unlock you PNA, update navigation maps - please ask

Tom Tom 910 software

I don't think the Tomtom 910 has a SD card slot. Check the model # of your GPS again.
