Question about Tomtom GO 520 GPS Receiver
I have exactly the same problem as Peter588, has anyone got to the bottom of this?
It sounds like your mini usb connector is damaged. If you're handy you can buy a replacement and solder it in. You will need a very fine tip soldering iron and a magnifying glass. The repair can be quite challenging as the components are surface mounted.
Otherwise I can fix it for you for a small fee.
I've repaired about 20 tomtom units with similar problems. I charge around £35 for this including return postage

Try soft resetting the unit by holding in the reset button (bottom of unit) with the end of a paper clip for 15 sec and switching on again holding on switch for 5sec. If the PC (XP?) fails to see the 520 as a drive assigned under "my computer", then it may be a mechanical fault as described. Take out any SD card for the moment. Does TTHome program see the 520?
