Question about Tomtom GO GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My TomTom occasionally will not turn on. I have had it for a couple of months now. I took it back to the Radio Shack where I bought it and they said it was normal. I know you sometimes have to hold down the on key for a few seconds but sometimes, I have to go for a couple of days before I can get it to come on. Any suggestions?

Plug it into your computer and download all the software updates. That has fixed it for me. In fact, it will probably find your location faster than ever after that

This is a very common problem with ANY brand of GPS. Even if you have the most current and updated map, there are some mistakes in the GPS addresses. It should only happen occasionally, maybe once every couple of weeks. As I said before, it's not unheard of for TomTom, Garmin, Magellan or any bradn of GPS

How do you get up to date maps for navman my55T


Start at the navman website.

I should pre-warn you that they are not very friendly. About 4 years ago I bought my mom a Navman ICN 620, after 6 months I tried to get updates and called and emailed them for about four months finally when they responded they just said they were not updating US maps for any of their previous products. Looks like they are more an international company that sells in limited quantity in the US through Radio Shack stores. I have gone back to their website about 5 times since then to see if any updates were ever added and they never did.

If its an older unit I would replace it Tomtom makes a nice unit and Magellan even has a few units with free traffic updates (depending on area)

I finally just replaced the unit for her this christmas bought her a Magellan roadmate 1470 for $150.

Just FYI most GPS manufacturers want you to pay YEARLY for their map updates and if you skip an update you may have to also pay to do a firmware update. I have a Tomtom go 720 which is 2 years old they wanted $49 for a firmware update and $99 for the map update.

Charger


I had the same exact problem! It should plug in to the back of the unit, but it wouldnt charge there either.

What i had to do was goto Radio Shack and buy a Universal Charger for my cigarette lighter that cost $14.00. It has multiple plugs and 'pins'. Find the right one, and set the volt/amp switch to 4 or 6 amps, whatever it says on the bottom of your TOM TOM. The person at Radio Shack helped me, they should be able to help you too!

Thanks,
Mark

Tomtom 3rd edition


I think it has to do with hooking up your unit via the usb cable to the computer. I got one from Radio Shack and it worked fine for a day, drove with it and shut it on and off a couple of times. Then I hooked it up to my emachine computer, and all I got was a white screen. Took it back got another one, drove with it, turned it on and off a couple of times, worked fine. Then I hooked it up to my computer, and again the same white screen until I reset it. I noticed all these posts are in the last few days, so I would say it is a bad batch of units. I purchased one for my wife 3 weeks ago and no such problem.
