Tomtom 730 stuck in loop

I've just updated my Tomtom 730 with new software from website and now it's stuck in a loop. Switches on, goes to initial image then after about 10 seconds switches itself off and starts again. Can't get past this. Connected to my computer I can get into it but not when it's on its own. Battery fully charged, still not working.

SOURCE: switch on problem

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

SOURCE: TomTom Home

I had a similar problem when trying to update my dad’s old TomTom Go300. I bought a new map and downloaded TomTom Home 2 (as instructed on the website) but found that the Go300 was recognised by the computer it wasn't recognised by TomTom's own Home 2 software.

To cut a long story short I uninstalled Home 2 and downloaded Home 1 (from http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17 Home 1 is the one on the right, listed as being the version of Home you use for Navigator 6).

Then when I switched the Go300 on it was recognised by Home1 - although the new map I had bought wasn't listed as being available for download.

However, I updated the Go300 with the available listed free updates, then switched it off.

Downloaded Home 2 again and switched the Go300 on - this time it was recognised by the computer and the new map I had bought was available to download.

So far so good - the only problem was the the postcode search facility was not the same as it had been - I could now only search the first 4 digits of the postcode. There is a fix for this on the tomtom website:

http://www.tomtom.com/support/index.php?Language=1&query=postcode&FID=9852

which I followed and which worked.

Hope this may be of some use to someone! It took me hours to figure it all out. But it's up and running now.

I read and read and re-read the TomTom website looking for any info that would help but came up with nothing. A few hours later and the air thick with torrents of language I didn’t think I was capable of I discovered that I needed to download Home1 first and let the Go300 connect to the computer via Home1 before it would be recognisable by Home2. Okay…
On the website, though, Home1 is listed as being the version you use if you have TomTom Navigator 6. It’s not even called ‘Home 1′. Confusing eh? Anyway, I downloaded that and from there found that I could get my new map onto my Go300. Once the map and other updates were installed and I had switched the thing off I then found that Home2 recognised it at last.
That had to be one of the most ridiculously long-winded things I’ve had to do on a computer, mainly because TomTom’s confusing advice on their website made the whole process so damn difficult. Perhaps they hoped I’d give up and buy a new one? Tsk.

SOURCE: 730T - tomtom home hangs when checking for updates - mac

Hi - have had the same problem - if you look on the tomtom website and support they have a list and one is flashing red cross. You need to follow the steps to format the tomtom. I did this and it worked and it included the update. i havent reconnected since i have it working now. I think its a software problem with HOME. Make sure you do a back up on home and make sure you follow step by step. close HOME before you start to reformat and also in the preferences turn off the automatically connect to home when you plug into your computer or it keeps flashing up on the screen to correct. the only solution is to format it. i bought mine two days ago and the first one stuffed up so took it back for a replacement. this one worked when i turned it on but turned out the flashing cross appeared when connected to computer (i have a mac). good luck

Do I have lifetime maps on my gps tomtom 730


If your TomTom GPS model number (when you originally purchased it new) is shown with an "M" ... e.g. GO 730M ... it indicates that the TomTom GPS unit you'd purchased includes free lifetime maps (updates) just for the map included in that unit, e.g. USA and Canada. If it shown with a T, e.g. GO 730TM ... it indicates that it also includes traffic data.
When you register the unit (on the TomTom website), and you log in to the TomTom website (using the TomTom HOME or MyDrive Connect), it will (automatically) tell you if/when you have an updated version of the map to download, to replace the current one on your device.

Tomtom free updates


You can use TomTom HOME software to connect to the TomTom website, to get updates to your TomTom GPS. The TomTom website provides free updates for the current satellite positions, the MapShare revisions and the navigation software, if applicable.
A new release of the map has to be purchased on a one-time basis, or you can subscribe to new quarterly releases.

It says "no maps found"


I had the same problem before on a TomTom GO 730. The free internal memory was too small to hold the updated map so installation failed (the download to PC was OK, the message is misleading).
It's a TomTom software bug to not check on the available free memory properly before the update process is started.
My TomTom device required a new software install from scratch. Remove any excess MP3 or unused voices before you retry the update.

Tomtom one won't connect to computer


I tried to download the update and now my is stuck. During installation it was supposed to download 7 components but it quit and gave an errorand could not continue the download. Now whenI turn it on it keeps looping to the tomtom main screen and telling me some legalities, and states it cannot find a gps signal.

I wish I could have the version that camewith it. There should be a op for me to restore it to factory default.

I don't advise updating the software at the website, it worked great at first.

Hi i have justnd just purchases tom tom 730 Go and connected it to my pc. it wont seem to disconnect. it wont turn on fully and has a big cross on the screen


That means you didn't let TomTom Home finish your update before you disconnected. You can do one of two things: reconnect update your device, but if that fails to work, you're going to need to do a hard reset of the device. It is very important to allow TomTom Home to completely finish installing any updates you select before disconnecting or the software may become corrupt.
