Hi happyivan8 i know tomtoms answer to this problem is to plug it in to the computer for a few hours but thats not really a fix, just an added pain in the rear.

i have 2 of these and one worked good after i updated it but the other still has the same problem and will only start after i charge it via the usb cable or unplug and plug the battery back in.

try updating it through tomtom home but it may or mayneo solve the problem. if you have already tried the update and that didnt help, i dont know what else you can do other then use it for target practice like im going to.

you can get tomtom home HERE if you dont have it already!

SOURCE: tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on

Make sure the SD Card is formatted as FAT32 and not FAT. My TomTom One XL would not recognize it until I did that.

SOURCE: When I turn on there is only a cross over the SD card.

This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card, Connect the device to your computer. Open the TomTom Home application. Click on 'Update My Device'. This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

SOURCE: can the tom tom xl 330s get a memory upgrade and if so how. Thanx

No, what you see is what you get, there is no slot for an SD card or any other form factor, the internal memory is also not upgradable.

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

TOMTOM one XL has deleted favourite locations


I think that just means there are no favourite destinations.
Just add a destination and save it as favourite. The button should be enabled again.

It's a standard SD card that you can get from electronics or camera shops. 1Gb should be OK.

Tom tom one Xl wont load


Hi,maybe that the memory card is knackered! (tomtom ones are poor quality and slow) Have you got a spare card that you use in a camera maybe, if so format it using fat 32 on your computer and then copy and paste all your files one by one onto it. I this works I would recommend a sandisk ultra 2 as a replacement card, worked for me!

TOM TOM is frozen


To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to
push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot, on the
bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on.
If this helps you plz rate this. Thank you kindly.

Tom Tom XL


The One XL can only read from internal OR sd card...
So, if you want the device to boot from the sd card, it need system files installed on the sd card...

So, try this:
- BACKUP !!
- Copy ALL content from internal memory to sd card.
- Insert sd card, and boot the device.

It should know boot from sd card, not internal memory...

Tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on


If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.

1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore

TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

Hope this helpful

"My tom tom wonts switch on. I have reset it and still it comes on with a boom boom noise and shows the 2 hands on the screen. It also shows the loading bar at the bottom, but then it just freezes and nothing happens. can anyone help please ASAP"

Sound as though your Map data card is corrupt. Remove the SD card and check it with your computer using a card reader. Backup the SD card onto your computer. You can run either chkdsk or go to the drive letter under 'My Computer' right click and select properties, then tools, then check now. You can also try starting the Tomtom with the SD card out of the unit. It should show a picture of the Tomtom with a 'X'. You can also try copying the data on the SD card to another SD card.
