I am glad to HELP YOU!

Definitely after the impact your device became LESS SENSITIVE on the lower left side.
So as a replacement you will need
FIRST - the digitizer
SECOND - the display [but ONLY if the older display has cracks or other damages].

GOOD LUCK!

Probaly you're still within the gaurantee periode, go back to the store and don't tell them that it is you're own fault that you've bricked your tom tom, they only need to know that it stopped to work without anny reason, that this happend with normal use, they should replace it for you or send it back to tom tom to fix it for free.

Next thime don't unplug you're tom tom when it is updating, be patient,
the software tells you when it is finished updating.

Succes.

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.

The touch-screen on my Mio Digiwalker c310 pocket GPS navigation unit is mostly broken. Some regions still respond properly to touch, but most of it barely responds if at all. Looks like it got water in...


The connection to the glass is usually through a series of small conductive rubber strips around the perimeter (like a gasket). If the pressure on the rubber is released slightly, it may not touch the glass or the circuit board on the other side. The pressure is held mechanically when the assembly is clamped together.
Liquids could short the rubber strips causing unpredictable display and touch screen operation. It would need to be dismantled and cleaned.
Another possibility is the ribbon wire to the LCD assembly is loose or even cracked so the traces are broken apart in the ribbon.
The LCD assembly is difficult to repair by dismantling. I wouldn't recommend it.

Tom To Rider


Unfortunately I have encountered the same issue with my Tom Tom Rider. I have worked out the problem is between the mounting bracket and the GPS unit. There are 4 little metal pins that spring in and out on the mounting braket that are supposed to be in touch with 4 metal cylindrical metal surfaces on the rear of the GPS head unit. This looks good in design and theory, but the GPS unit does not always make contact with the metal pins, hence allowing no charge to GPS unit and automatically turns itself off whilst riding. I have sort to overcome the issue with building the rear of GPS head unit cylindrical contact points with solder. It is a fiddly fix, but to date this has overcome the issues you have named up. A small drop of self fluxing solder is all that is required. No more than 2mm projection off GPS unit. Allow the solder to adhere to contact and move soldering iron towards the base of GPS unit. The reason for doing this is to allow the pins extra contact surface. I found my pins on the mounting unit did not line up with GPS head unit when fitting together from new. It's not easy to see this, but shine a torch light as you bring 2 surfaces together and you will see what I mean. The mounting braket pins were slightly lower than the GPS contacts. This is what causes the problem. Hopefully Tom Tom will redsign these on the next model or allow more contact space and tolerances to eliminate this frustration. Regards, Nicky (fellow Tom Tom Rider)
