THow to get at reset button.Tom tom not charging when plugged into 12 volt in car.

There is a small reset pin 'hole' underneath nearby the USB/Power plug.

However, if your GPS is charging when you plug it to a PC or Laptop USB port, then I would suspect that the issue is more a faulty Car Power supply/charger (could be the cable or plug if you can see the pilot light on the charger).

ps. A cheaper alternative/easier to find to an original Tomtom car charger is a generic 5V (rated at least 1 Amp) USB charger used with your Tomtom USB Cable (that is what I use myself).

Hope it helps!

Have lost manual. I need car charger for Mio P550 but Mio no longer making. Have purchased Scala AC Travel Charger Part No; SEL15305 (Input voltage 100-240VAC, 50/60Hz) and end is right but not sure if it...

The important thing is the ampage. If you have your old car charger check the ampage output. A higher amp rating charger will be ok as the p550 will only draw the current it needs. The voltage you listed sounds like a house charger not a portable car charger. cars run at 12v and the output should be something like 5v dc - 1amp (normally anyway).

We have a Tomtom XL with a cigarette lighter connector; our car does not haveone of these . Is there an alternative cable/connector?

the only alternative is to hardwire it into the car, and you must utilize the car charger to supply the correct voltage (you can not supply 12V or it will blow out your tomtom)

your tomtom will not take more then 5v @ 2 amps so you need to go through the car charger by taking it apart and attaching the power from the car to the car charger input leads.

i dont recommend you try this if you do not fully understand what im saying, because you can easily ruin your gps by hooking it up wrong.

any decent mechanic should be able to do this in less then 20 minutes.

curious as to what kind of car you have that doesn't have some sort of aux power.

have you looked under the dash or the clove box...sometimes they are put out of sight, but i dont think i have ever seen a car without one.

Where to get in car charger for evesham 7211

I just bought an in-car charger for the 7211 on ebay.
It is 5v with a 2amp flow.
It's not for the mini-USB port on the side but for the dc input hole on the other side.
I've just plugged it into my laptop via the mini-USB port to see if it will charge that way but it doesn't seem to be doing.
Hope this helps.

Have tom tom for car,need to wire it up to m/cycle

I've wired my tom tom for use on a motor bike.
you CANT run 12v straight into the tomtom, you can see on the cig lighter plug it has a 5v output.
So I bought cheap lighter socket, it looks like plastic tube with the cable running out of the back.
So the wires run from the battery (via an in line fuse) to the cig adaptors, these are hidden in my side luggage bag to keep dry and up to the tomtom. job done

Navman icn 720 gps will not power on

Poss that the battery is totally dead, and therfore will not power up even when on ac or 12v charger lead. Often the battery is part of the circuit, and if the battery is dead rather than just weak or discharged, then the circuit is incomplete.

I posted on here how to remove the battery, you can get a replacement quite easily. Also would be an idea to search out a correct output charger, or maybe borrow one just to determine if the problem was with the battery rather than a blown unit.

Good Luck

TomTom 510 Sat Nav

Most likey its not worth fixing. Look at it like this. While it may have only been 6 volts versus 5. One volt in a 5 volt system is a 20 percent increase.
If you took something that ran on 120 volts and plugged it into a 144 volt source you can figure the damage that would do.

Battery Charging Navman S90i

The problem is that most of the chargers have the output of 5V/0.5A. The charger for NAVMAN (C30 in my case) has 5V/1A. And that is causing the trouble. The GPS is undercharged and is switching off itself. Buy one which specify the output power: 5V/1A. Hope I solved your problem
