The device can be run from the lighter plug without being charged first. The obvious answer is: plug in the device again; when the car is key is in and electricity switched on, it should charge again.
Most Tomtom devices also come with a standard USB cable or charge cradle with non-standard connector on device end (but USB on the other). It plugs in a PC for use with the Tomtom HOME software and also for charging.
The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug.
The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.
I've wired my tom tom for use on a motor bike. you CANT run 12v straight into the tomtom, you can see on the cig lighter plug it has a 5v output. So I bought cheap lighter socket, it looks like plastic tube with the cable running out of the back. So the wires run from the battery (via an in line fuse) to the cig adaptors, these are hidden in my side luggage bag to keep dry and up to the tomtom. job done
there are ways u can charge your gps 1 is to buy extension for your lighter i know that the plug is very big adapter is about 6.00 to 15.00 dollars. also battery life after full charge is about 45 min not long at all your lap to will charge it ha hope u and your tom tom are very happy ps keep it pro k bye bye get it
My daughter had this problem and it actually turned out to be the cigarette lighter connection. The fuse needed changing and bingo all working well now! Check you have a green light on the charger cable going into your cigarette lighter - if you dont its probably the fuse.
