Broken glass behind touch screen on tom tom one

Could you please give me a quote for the replacement of the touch screen on a tomtom one – the glass has broken [but not the video screen itself] and 90% of the touch screen is un touchable!
as an engineer, is it possible to purchase a replacement screen and fit as a diy job?
Thanks in advance

Re: broken glass behind touch screen on tom tom one

The cheapest replacement touch screens can be found on Ebay for less than $20,
There are four very small solder connections on the ribbon cable which will have to be resoldered, but as long as your LCD is good, its much cheaper to replace the touch unit.
Using a stanley knife blade or similar, you can remove the touch panel from the LCD whereas it is affixed using 2 sided tape. Be carefull not to damage the main ribon cable which plugs in to your board. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the main ribon cable from the unit.
Good luck

My GPS only shows a "non" English language. How do I fix this?


You did not mention which gps systems do you have. Anyway giving you details of tom-tom gps language change instructions.

Change the language settings on your TomTom GPS device. If your TomTom GPS receiver is set to the wrong language, change the current language to the language of your choice. Perform a reset on the device as described in Step 1. When your GPS unit turns back on, tap the button in the lower right corner of the screen to continue. Tap the next screen to access the GPS receiver's main menu. Tap on the wrench icon to access the "Change Preferences" setting screen. Scroll through the "Change Preferences" screens until you see the "Change Language" icon, identified by three flags. Tap the "Change Language" icon and choose your desired language from the list. Depending on which language you chose, you may be asked to choose a new voice for turn-by-turn navigation.

For Garmin device:-

Try this below

Touch the Wrench icon which is located on the screen with the Magnifying Glass and Map icon
Touch the Wrench icon
Touch the down arrow
Touch the Lips/Mouth icon
Touch the top right blue box
Touch the up arrow until you see American English
Touch American English
Touch OK
This should now be in English.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

I need to reprogram my tom-tom one and change who it belongs to as well as the address.

On the map display touch the screen once

Look for the spanner / wrench icon and touch that once.

Kepp using the Right arrow until you see RESET FACTORY SETTINGS

Touch YES.

That should make it as you bought it.

Tom Tom Go 920 jumping screens

There is little or no support for TOMTOM unfortunately. They want you to send it to them so they can extract your teeth in costs.
reformatting may not fix it as its a fault on the main board, (loose screen ribbon connection) openin unit voids warranty and there are many tiny pieces that fall out if you are not exceptionally skilled or careful.
So there is not a lot of choice here

Screen continues to go out,touch it ,it reappears,every 20 second

Hello megbert, I own a TomTom also. I have listed the procedures from TomTom Home and hope this will work. First try a soft reset (Reset button is located at the bottom of the TomTom device next to where the DC plug plugs in). Make sure your batteries are fully charged up or the USB cord is plugged in.

If your device is not starting up properly, follow the steps below: 
  1. Soft reset your device. *

  2. If your device still does not start up, then reinstall the TomTom application using HOME
If you have backed up your TomTom to your computer, then you can reinstall the TomTom application from your backed up data. *    In rare cases, your TomTom device may not start correctly or may stop responding. If this happens, try resetting your device. A reset does not delete any data.
