My tom tom is stuck on opening page. cannot do anything with it.

Most TomTom GPS have a small reset button underneath. you will need a paper clip to activate the reset button. This should start it up and clear the locked out state you described

Tom Tom Go 710, There is a password set on it and

TomTom say that you will need to return the unit to them to unlock it, but there is an independant prog download available that costs £40. How good that is I don't know, so I suggest you mail TomTom Service dept to see what they say. I reckon it is the cheapest alternative.

Frozen tomtom go 910

Hi, Not a nice problem that. Try connecting your tomtom to PC ( not through home ) so the tomtom will look like a USB drive in "My Computer". if TomTom Home tries to load up , cancel it. Look in "My Compuer" If you do see the TomTom as a drive , open it up and copy the folders and files to your PC. If that works, now you have a backup and you can have a mess around knowing that if you mess things up , at least you can put things back as they were and you won't have made anything worse than it was before. Once thats done , try a harder reset in normal way but also hold the ON button in whilst doing the reset . Many people press too hard on the reset button and also hold it too long so just give one single press , only hard enough to feel it click in , then out. Thats all it needs for a reset and it avoide damaging the switch ( yes , I have seen many reset switched stuck in or broken ). I think theres 2 possible causes for your problem . 1/ You now have a corrupted file on your TomTom preventing the boot-up continuing. 2/ Your Tomtom is still trying to perform the last function ( backing up through TomTom-home ) and has somehow got stuck in that loop. For the moment , try the above and see how you get on and if you donn't solve it please post on this forum again .

Good luck .
