SOURCE: tomtom one xl freezing on start up screen

OK... I found an amature solution;

- Do a soft reset of the system, with the paperclip (see tomtom site)
- Put the device on the docking station and connect it to power as well as to your computer. While it's turned off
- Turn on the TOMTOM while connected to the computer
- Start the TOMTOM Home software
- And it made connection again
- Disconnect the device via the software
- Take the device out of the docking station
- Turn it off and on once

This worked for me, my next step would have been the support desk. Grtz Derk

SOURCE: My Tomtom XL won't turn on. No reset button apparent

The reset button is on the bottom of your device. On my older model XL it is just above the sd card slot. If you have the newer model XL 330 then you have to hold down the on/off switch for 20 seconds to do a reboot. If you have not used it in a while let it charge for 30 monutes before doing a reset.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: tomtom xl says no maps available after installing

when your registered it with tom tom they take note of your maps

I you backed it up to your computer you can also restore the maps from there with the tomtom home software

The green power light on my tomtom XL is on and is fully charged however the screen wont turn on and remains black, it also makes no noise.


First you need to check if the battery is okay, try it on another tom tom gps receiver, if it is working and the screen wont turn on, then it means there is a hardware problem, probably the flexi ribbon that is connected to the screen is either loose or bad, this will require you to disassemble the tom tom and check for the flexi ribbon that connects to the screen, then you resit it or change the ribbon, that should do the job.
You can also try to reset the tom tom first before disassembling it. By pressing and holding the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, if that does not do the job, then you can go ahead and disassemble the tom tom.
Hope this solution helped

One xl freezes on tomtom startup screen


It is because of you just upgrade your device.
Not to worry. If you can't switch on/off, try harder.
Press on/off button for on/off purpose until on/off.
After that, the device works properly.

Green light is on when plugged into car cigarette lighter but cannot switch it on and the screen remains black


hook it up to the usb cable to your computer for a few hours (but not more then 4 hours) then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

once you get it started, hook it up to tomtom home and see if it has the latest updates.

if you do not have tomtom home, you can download it HERE

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational...


More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

Hi, just bought a one xl, have tried to set up my home address and I pressed a wrong button, Italy instead of u.k., got up 'change home location' on the screen and selected street and house number, tapped...


age has nothing to do with new technology,

if the language in One XL is Italian then use google translate


TomTom One XL manual page 33
Tap Change preferences in the Main Menu.

(When you first start using your TomTom ONE XL, not all the buttons will be shown in the menu. Many buttons and some more advanced features are hidden because you will not need these features very often.To see all of the buttons and features, tap "Show ALL menu options" button in the Preference menu.)

then

TomTom One XL manual page 36
Tap "Change language" button to change the language
You can choose from a wide range of languages. When you change the language, you are also given the opportunity to change the voice.

if your one is not One XL any TomTom manual can find here


Hope this help

V9 Bluetooth activation


My suggestion:

First take your BT device (Not the phone), and hold down the pwr button until the light stays on constant (this is "find me" mode for most BT devices like headsets).

Next on your V9 goto your Settings/Connections & select Bluetooth, then scroll righ (or select options) to search for your device.
Once your device shows up in the screen selct it by hitting the center of the nav key and it will ask for a passkey wich is normaly "0000".

You should then be paired.
