My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?

It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

I require a mains charger for Tomtom 4n00.001. I need to charge it from home

You can buy a Tomtom main charger but they are fairly expensive.

You can use a Main powered USB charger along with your normal PC Tomtom USB cable: it should ideally be rated at 1 Amp or more.

You might even have a suitable main USB charger on hand now as they often come with generic MP3/MP4 players and some mobile phones: I use my Huawei U8150 or E585 modem charger for that purpose myself!

Hope it helps.

My tom tom keeps switching off as tho out of power even tho plugged in. the charger gets extremely hot as does the wire, any suggestions? it is about 3 years old

You need to plug your TOM TOM into a PC with Internet connection and go to the tomtom web site:
You will need a usb cable that has the "mini" usb standard connector that plugs into the TOM TOM unit. It should update automatically, but you will need a TomTom Home account (free) created. Then you can download the latest updates that should clear up the power issues. Otherwise, get a new power cord as they do wear out with daily use. -Greg

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on

My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

Tomtom rider will only switch on whilst under mains power and on

If it will switch on when connected to mains or car charger then perhaps your battery has had it. My battery no longer retains charge even when not in use. Suggest try new battery.

Tomtom one xl usb socket broken off main pcb

I have gone around this problem by removing the internal battery, and soldering a female power connector to it.I now it on 3 aa batteries, alkaline cells givbe me an autonomy of about an hour, maybe duracells will give a bit more duration.

When i have time ,I will work on splicing the wires on the cigar plug adaptor and use that as a permanent power source. The wires for the Lipo cell are Red positive, solder this to the yellow wire( probably a battery gauge wire) and black ground.

Hope this helps

Very poor workmanship from TOMTOM
