Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer


It worked fine on my first little test run. Next day I set it to go a greater distance. We got there and I turned off the car, but did not unplug the GPS. When we got back in the car it was totally dead. When we got home I took a paper clip and tied to do a reset but nothing changed.

Is the battery not flat maybe... be aware also that you need to hold the power on button for a few seconds sometimes!

Clicking type sound coming from front left (tire), only hear it when i am driving and gets LOUD, tires are new and do not hear this sound from engine. I was told that a CV(?) joint was bad. I need this...

Short distances become long distances as the defect is ignored every day . It will take less than 2 hours in an accredited work shop to replace the CV joints but if you let it go for what ever reason the cost and time off the road will be very much greater.. This matter must be fixed asap

94 4.0 dies while driving will start after sitting a while

Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

Car won't turn over randomly

When it will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the clutch safety switch, and the key switch.

I have a 2007 Sportster XL1200C. I turn the key and have full power. Lights, signals, etc. I hut the power switch to the RUN positios and try to start the bike and it does nothing but click. Battery is new...

It sounds like the battery to me. I know you said it is "new" but then you said that it would drain from fully charged to dead in a short distance and die. A good battery should run your bike all day long even if the charging system is not working. I'd take the battery out and take it to an auto parts store and have it load tested. This service is usually free.

If the battery checks good, charge it up fully and test your charging system. You'll need a good DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Put the meter's function selector switch to DC VOLTS with a range of 20 volts or greater. Connect the red meter lead to the positive post and the black lead to the negative post of the battery. Start the bike up and bring it to a high idle. Within a minute or two, your meters should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts,

If not, follow the two wires coming out of your voltage regulator. There are three wires coming out of the voltage regulator, one to the battery and two to the alternator. Follow the two that go the same way. You should come to a round plug. Unplug the plug and look into the engine side of the plug and you'll see two contacts. This is where we're going to test the voltage. This is an AC voltage so it makes no difference which lead goes where as long as they don't touch the engine case or each other. Put your meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 volts or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert the meter leads into the contacts in the engine side of the plug. You should read at least 25 volts. If not, your stator is bad and your alternator is not generating voltage. If you have 25 volts or more there but not the 14.5 volts at the battery, your problem is likely the regulator.

Good Luck

If the dsi xl has gotten wet is it completely lost?

Let it dry out for about 3 days. One way is to put it in a container with uncooked white rice. The rice should soak up some of the moisture. It should work fine after its been dried out.

Loss of signal

It is most lkely the battery, chane the battery and recharge it. batteries collapse after about 2 -3 years depending on use and abuse. If you have it plugged in when starting the engine the battery will deteriorate quicker and eventuslly fail. resting the battery can cause some charge to return, often sufficient to run it for short periods before it once again fails due to output being greater than the chrging rate.

Range finder does not register distance 99.9% of the time

I had the same problem, rangefinder would work only sometimes and only at short distances. Called customer support and was ready to send it in. Tech guy told me to turn off "First Target" ( or "last target") and turn on"LOS" (line of sight). Range finder now works perfectly at all distances. Apparently the first target feature doesnt work properly.
