You can hook it up to a USB charger or use a USB to charge it from any phone type charger. You can buy the charger for the GPS on eBay.

Battery losing charge whilst plugged in to cig lighter

I have the same problem, when the battery goes dead, it seems to do so instantly vs. just holding the charge for less time. You can replace the battery, but with the prices coming down and the fact that the map upgrades cost what they do, I'm thinking it's more cost effective to just buy a new GPS.

I have a question concerning the tomtom 910. When plugged into the car, the tomtom goes off and on and the battery is constantly low. However,when I charge it at home, it stays on for about 4 hours. What...

Connect your TomTom to the car charger and turn it on. Tap the lower right hand cornor where the sat. signal graph is. On the screen that comes up check to see if it is chargeing while connected to the car charger. It should say charging in the upper right hand cornor where it shows the battery status. If it isn't charging then you have either a bad pin on your windsheild mount or your charger is not working. If the charger is not working it may be as simple as replacing the fuse in the charger.

Tomtom rider will only switch on whilst under mains power and on

If it will switch on when connected to mains or car charger then perhaps your battery has had it. My battery no longer retains charge even when not in use. Suggest try new battery.

Lack of Battery

First make sure it is your battery. Check to see if when you are charging your device and wiggle the USB cable a little if the green charge light starts blinking. If it starts blinking on and off you have a loose USB connector. This is an easy fix if you have some soldering skills. Your device should not turn off when it is hooked up to power even if you have a dead battery.

Charging tomtom XL GPS

Hi Jill,

It all depends on your computer. The charging current via USB is limited by the computer. Some restrict this to 500mA, others (lap-tops mainly) to 200mA. If the TomTom is turned off, you should get the battery charged in 3 to 6 hours. With the unit on, it can take many times longer as the unit will take almost 200mA from the battery.

Will not take a charge

I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.
