Re: Tom Tom one

Girard, see if their support crew won't help you with your missing charger, or if you just bought it, return it to the store and talk to them there. It's worth a shot. Good luck,, Mechanic

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home

The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

My tom tom will not come on. i was driving when my tom tom lost power.and will not come back on.

hi rlorton69

hook it up to your computer for a few hours via the usb cable...then try it again. your tomtom car charger is only a trickle charger, its meant to keep a charge on your tomtom, and wont charge it when its dead.

if it fails to start after you charge it via the usb cable, just post back with your specific model and ill help you further

Been given a tom tom, with no charger apart from cigarette lighter adapter, ONCE CONNECTED WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT A RESPONSETO ENABLE ME TO INSTALL INFO. THANKS JENNY

Tom Tom GPS only brings a car charger and a USB to Mini USB cable that allows you to sync with your computer. For more info on your specific unit visit the Tom Tom site. You can also download the needed interface software for your unit at their web site. The USB cable isn't very expensive if you need to replace it. And once you have it, you will be able to update maps or download and install maps for other countries and even some fun voices if your unit supports it.
Download the software you need first and then connect your TOM TOM. Follow the prompts. Install any updates and you should be okay.

My tom tom keeps switching off as tho out of power even tho plugged in. the charger gets extremely hot as does the wire, any suggestions? it is about 3 years old

You need to plug your TOM TOM into a PC with Internet connection and go to the tomtom web site:
You will need a usb cable that has the "mini" usb standard connector that plugs into the TOM TOM unit. It should update automatically, but you will need a TomTom Home account (free) created. Then you can download the latest updates that should clear up the power issues. Otherwise, get a new power cord as they do wear out with daily use. -Greg

My tom tom one won't charge because the charging unit on the base of tom tom has lost the part that connects to the charger, do I have to buy a new one?

She charges on USB with a PC. If USB port suplies power, not all do.
Seperate home charger for sale.
Or replace original.
I hope you talk apot that cable to cigarette lighter.
Mind you I have a Go 300

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520

Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

Can i charge my tom tom at home instead of through the cigaret lighter in the car

Yes, I have an old nokio phone charger with the correct connection and it charges fine using that. It will also charge up when connected via the USB cable to your Computer, obviously when it is switched on,

thanks for using FixYa

How do I recharge my Tom Tom One?

I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.
