    it would be on the bottom where is reset button is, yours might not have one.

    when you push reset does it cycle the unit and comes back to the welcome screen or doesn't even cycle?

    have you upgraded the firmware?

    Cary Farah Jan 16, 2008

    STEP 1

    Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows
    Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some
    other drive letter).

    Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

    You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

    STEP 2

    Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

    STEP 3

    Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

    STEP 4

    Open TomTom Home

    Click on Upate Now.

    Install the latest update onto your TomTom.

    Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

    Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

    Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

Well i am writing this wile I am trying this out...

after you found the back-up you can connect your TomTom Go to your computer using the USB provided from your TomTom Go, replace the doggie file with the new one, then this should change it back to the FIRST update given...

(WARNING >> PLEASE scan the file befor you put it in your TomTom Go it might contain a very very evil virus<< WARNING)

Tom Tom go 910 screen get frozen every time I turn it on

Sounds like your firmware is corrupted. I have fixed a few 910's with this same problem. If you have the Tom Tom Home program installed, try to reinstall the firmware using Tom Tom's website.

Make sure you always select to disconnect the device before unplugging it. You might have unplugged it from the PC while it was still writing data. This will certainly corrupt the firmware.
