710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen

Updated Tom Tom Home today and now my Go 710 has frozen on the Tom Tom splash screen (picture of Go 710 with Tom tom logo).
The unit will NOT turn off and will NOT reset (either holding the on/off button for two seconds or not).
The card seems to be o.k. and the unit's charge light comes on when placed in the cradle.
Unit will Not connect to the computer.

Re: 710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen

1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

Tom tom won't turn off

if it does not proceed when the icon is selected, presume data corruption or in fact no data.
TomTom is renouned for this type of problem.
try rteinstalling the map data from the source.

try a reset first ( small pinhole on rear) put open paperclip end in and gently push the button inside) if this still fails then data installation is the go

Tom Tom 500 says memory card not installed

What I can suggest is download the drivers & software first .. Than buy another brand of memory card.. I had same issue with a Mp3 player that I had purchased.. It wouldnt recognise the card even though it was setup properly.. I returned it and baught a different brand.. Worked Like a Charm..

#2 If you for some reason cant get the software to install or work properly, I suggest you buy a new Tom Tom (( EXACT MODEL )) and than take the old Tom Tom put it in the new box and take it back with your receipt and tell them this doesnt work.. Ive done that b4 with a Speaker system and it wasnt an issue with the store...

Good Luck !
