Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

TomTom ONE This TomTom did not come with an SD card as it says the information is already in it. When I start it up the screen comes up with a man putting it in a briefcase and another with a sack over his shoulder and an X over him then it just shuts down! I have no clue I have tried to reset it many times. IF you could email me with any possible solutions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Brad Meyer

Re: TomTom ONE

The current Tom Toms do NOT come with SD cards any longer. After December of last year, they began to preload the map information directly into the unit. If you had purchased a unit that needed an SD card, the main screen would be an animation of the card being put in the unit to "remind" you to insert the card. You may have a battery issue. How have you been charging the unit?

Tomtom one (4N00.012) will not load up.

Your particular unit runs it's software from SD-Card. you need to check if the card is not damaged: while unpowered push the SD card to come out insert it in a card reader on your computer and see if it reads it ok, if it ask's you to format it it means it's damaged and should be replaced ( the sd card of your tomtom should be replaced with another SD card which you should buy from tomtom for your particular device not a generic one). if it reads just fine reinsert it and start the device again..And about the reset the correct procedure is: Press and hold the On/Off button until your device restarts. This can take more than fifteen seconds.904537f.gif
You should also install Tomtom Home on your computer, connect the device and update it if al the above failed (with a verified and working SD card inserted) - link for Tomtom Home: Windows, Mac

SD Card not showing in my Tomtom go 720 to play MP3

If you want to play mp3 songs from sd card then create mp3 folder and place all the songs in side that folder. Now when you go to Juke box menu it will scan all the songs and you will be able to play them the way you want..

You cannot use a sd card from another tomtom. The sd card is coded for each individual device. About the only thing you can do is to purchase a 1 gb card (no larger because it won't be supported). Insert the blank card into your unit and connect it to your pc. Go to my computer and see which drive the tt is. format the card and then open tomtom home. This will load your operating system back onto your card. I don't know if you can download a free map or not. Check the tomtom forums for more information concerning maps.
Hope this helps

"My tom tom wonts switch on. I have reset it and still it comes on with a boom boom noise and shows the 2 hands on the screen. It also shows the loading bar at the bottom, but then it just freezes and nothing happens. can anyone help please ASAP"

Sound as though your Map data card is corrupt. Remove the SD card and check it with your computer using a card reader. Backup the SD card onto your computer. You can run either chkdsk or go to the drive letter under 'My Computer' right click and select properties, then tools, then check now. You can also try starting the Tomtom with the SD card out of the unit. It should show a picture of the Tomtom with a 'X'. You can also try copying the data on the SD card to another SD card.

Tomtom one y need help

That's funny I just had the same problem and almost went crazy. Reconnect the GPS to your computer, restart your TomTom home software, and reinstall Tom Tom home to your GPS. If it says this application already exists, then press ok to overwrite it. Something must have happened when u were writing to the SD card the first time that's why u have a frozen SD card and it is telling u to take it out. I just fixed mine this way.
