Tomtom One screen problem

My tomtom one has started flipping between a variety of demo screens during navigation instead of showing the map. It continues to give voice directions and if I touch the screen, it will briefly show the map but go back to demo screens within 5 sec. I've pressed the reset button and turned off/on numerous times, but nothing has changed. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: Tomtom One screen 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...

I have Tomtom one. I have entered SW 93 Place Gainesville 32608 but the device fails to show the address. why is that

You entered the address as a destination? Tap Navigate to and select Recent destinations. Select that address and tap details. It will give you the choice to show demo. Select the maximum demo speed and (virtually) navigate to that place.

Screen reads"no maps found"

I found this article online, and it may work for you:

"Ok this has worked on at least four tomtom one’s
And one xl’s that i have tried,
First of all connect your tomtom to your computer.
making sure your online,Go to log on.
if you’ve not created an account create one now.
If you’ve had to create an account restart tomtom home.

You should have the tomtom home screen in front of you,
Now even if tomtom home is showing you logged in, ignore
this click your email adderss in the top right hand side of the screen
and log in again and click continue.
Then click Device/disconnect device.
Now your tomtom will update itself and your maps will be restored"

Continually returns to demo mode

I had to contact TomTom to answer this, their advice was:
On your device tap the bars that show the strength of the satellites. Then top right tap the clock and hold for 30 seconds.

I tried this but it didn't make any difference to me, but I thought it may help other users. I'll let you know when I get any further advice.

Just freezes at the start up screen, i have followed the steps on the tomtom site. I am usung the usb that came with it Tomtom 1 3rd edition

You probably have a wrong Navcore or Navigator version for your map. Navcore and Navigador are the operational system for your TomTom, depending on the model you have you use one or the other.

Tomtom go 730:no maps found...

It was the first time I loaded uppdate maps (for free, because new navigator) and then it
was blocked with the message:no maps found, when trying to start it...My last try was to put
the navigator on his usb support and opening" TomTom HOME" program, connected to "map share"
and loaded some tips, removed it "safely" from the usb connection and it showed the right
view again...Puhhh. Thanks anyway, your site gived quite som motivation.

Have a nice 2009!

TomTom One No Sound

tomtom one doesnt have the fm transmitter, try clicking on the navigation screen ie, where it shows the maps, menu 1 of 3 should come up, select the spanner icon, which is change preferences, you should be presented with preferences one of 7, which the lower middle one should show a speaker, if the speaker says turn sound on, click on the icon, if it has a red cross saying turn off sound, then leave it alone and click the arrow to get up preference menu 2 of 7, this has volume preferences,, you can slide it to 100% and do a test. select done to return to navigation screen.
