Leave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.

Tom tom go 710 will not switch on

I guess that you have already made sure the battery is charged enough to power the Sat Nav.... In the back of the Tom Tom where the cradle attaches, there is a tiny hole at the top where you can insert a small object such as a sewing needle in order to press the reset button; However, you may find that like mine the hole doesn't line-up with the button and therefore you can't reset the unit unless you remove the casing. if this is the case it's best to search You Tube and watch the short video as to what exactly to do! (it's really not hard)

Hope this helps

710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen

1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

Tomtom Go 710 continually trying to shut down,still plugged in to car adapter or mains power, but comes up with 10 second warning continually, shutting down.

I have had the same problem. unfortunately I have been told that it is the cradle connections to the main unit. they are at fault due to wear and tear and causes the shutdown. Try wiggling the cradle when connected, if there is some slack play then you may also have the same problem.... by the way, Tom Tom are not interested unless within warranty and they dont sell replacement cradles!

Tom tom won't turn off

if it does not proceed when the icon is selected, presume data corruption or in fact no data.
TomTom is renouned for this type of problem.
try rteinstalling the map data from the source.

try a reset first ( small pinhole on rear) put open paperclip end in and gently push the button inside) if this still fails then data installation is the go

My tom tom 710 is dead the green light is on but nothing on it!

Change the motherboard, green light on and nothing happening is quite common, you can find motherboards on ebay for £22 +p&p.

Its quite easy to do and worth while as the 710 and 910 are still very good units.
