On the bottom of the unit there is a reset button, depress it, if it is recessed use a paper clip end to do the reset.

Usually, the Reboot routine is done by holding down the Power ON/OFF button for a while (5 seconds or more) until it reboots. Don't be surprised if it takes a minute or so.
Alternatively, consider using the RESET button ... then do the Reboot routine. Make sure your battery is well charged, remove the SD card, and hold the RESET (pin) down for 20 seconds or so (until the screen shuts off). Then do the Reboot routine.

To reset your TomTom device, do the following:
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.
  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.
  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for at least 20 seconds. The reset button is a hole at the base/bottom of the device.
  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds or more, until the GPS starts up. It may take a minute or two of holding it down.
  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

My husbands tomtom IQ routes edition has just frozen - it shows a picture of a world. What can he do to get it back to normal?


Hello,

I will advice you reset the unit, this might help fix the abnormality with the white screen problem. follow these procedure to reset your tom tom gps.
Make sure your battery is charged before you begin. TomTom suggested allowing your device to charge for at least 2 hours before resetting it. Remove your device's SD card from the card slot.
Find the "Reset" pinhole button on the bottom of the device.
Hold the "Reset" button down for 10 to 15 seconds or until your device resets itself. You will need a flattened paperclip or another small metal object to reach inside the pinhole.
Power the TomTom back on and insert your SD Card. You have now reset your TomTom gps and this should fix the white screen problem.

Take care.

How i can reset an a lowrance endura sierra?


Hello there:
here is what you can try to do is first unplug any power going to the unit and remove the battery these units have a internal reset device that will reset it'self after a given amount of time which is about 1 hour.
during this time press in on the power button for 2 minutes and if it has a reset button it press in on this for 2 min leave the battery and the power out of the unit for the rest of the remaining time i had mentioned.
now plug in the power cord back in it and start the unit now if it works ok simply turn off and replace the battery and you are now done ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Frozen screen


If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.
 
You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
 
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this

TomTom screen frozen/won't turn off


This is usually an SD card issue. If you have one in then remove it and try again.

If there is no SD card involved then the other cause is that files may have been deleted or somehow corrupted.
In that case you would need to try and restore if you took a backup.
I have a spare card with my original tom tom software on there.

You could always try a HARD reset too !

I need more info to possibly help.
Do you have info on the SD card you need to keep?(just use a SD card reader for your computer to reformat to FAT) Be sure to copy all files to a safe place FIRST!
You could also try this combination, to clear ALL memory then reboot GPS unit.
1. Press and hold "Enter"+"Menu"+"PWR"
2. Follow GPS units On-Screen directions.
If GPS unit "locks-up" press and hold keys in this order, "Goto"+"ESC"+"Enter".(Forces GPS unit Off)
good luck
