Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I've lost my tomtom, despite getting it just a couple of weeks ago. I sort of suspect my teenage son's "friend" who was around adn very interested in it but don't want to make any accusations...esp as it might equally be lurking somewhere here, out of sight. Given that it is a GPS, is there any way of identifying its current location?

Tomtom white screen

Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

I have charged it up and it will not turn on. I have held the button down for over 20seconds but it is just dead. It was working ok a couple of weeks ago before i switched it off.

hi Sandy_50

im not sure how you tried to charge your tomtom, but you should charge for about 4 hours using the usb cable to your computer. if the battery is totally drained, this is how you should charge it. for some reason unexplained by tomtom, the home or car charger wont work to get it running again.

Tom Tom sat nav takes ages to get a GPS signal now.

Think I have sorted the problem out. I read some of your readers' solutions and it was mentioned that it may be advisable to log onto the GPS update. So, I installed my disc which came with the pack and followed the instructions to download the GPS update (and also took the opportunity to download other updates which took some time). Anyway, used the sat nav this morning and so far, it appears to be working normally now and the signal comes on in seconds!

How can I locate my lost/stolen tomtom?

Unfortunately no.
Tomtom is a receiver, there is no signal sending involved.

Outside taking the serial number from the box and kicking a suspects door in there is no real chance this is coming back..

all you can do is satisfy yourself that they were too dumb to be able to do much with it..

better luck for the future.

Download maps to SD but TomTom won't read them

The OneXL can't read form internal memory and SD card at the same time.. much like a floppy disk on a computer. If it shall boot from SD card, it need the software installed as well...

How can I locate my lost/stolen tomtom?

First of all it is obivous that a tomtom has a unique satellite address to recieve information, or they really wouldn't work, right? Any search from anyones tomtom would change your destination, which is defintly not the case. A unique satallite address means the address could defintly be cloned and monitored for activity. Just as they do with computers and modems. I mean they were able to catch BTK, a serial killer, by tracing a floppy disk all the way back to the exact computer he used to make it for christ sake. Tomtom probable doesn't want you to really think about the possibilaties of tracking your GPS, as this would probably be a violation of our privacy and probably our rights. I really think they can, but why they want to waste their time with the thousands of calls everyday. They should get their heads out of their azz and make some goddam money. It is a freaking Global Positioning Satallite reciever, and it would be the stupidest thing that I've ever heard that Tomtom can't find the location of it, come on. It seems they prey off our ignorance and only care about making money.

speakers are very vulnerable on these units along with radar detectors. they get jostled around and broken or garbled. The unit needs service or you can live without voice as i had to for a while(just got new unit 2 weeks ago)
