Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Sat nav TomTom Go 700 - The green light is on while charging but the unit will do nothing else. I have tried pressing the reset button on the underside of the unit but this does not fix the fault. When the start button is pressed the green light comes on, but only as long as the button is pressed in, and the unit will still not start up. Any Ideas ? Many Thanks Richard Fensham I have not used my unit for a while. When i connected it to my pc & turned it on, i get a picture of a hand holding the unit with a red cross. There is also an egg timer, a message saying please wait. So i waited & waitedddddddd. Pressed the reset button, charged the unit via wall socket for 3 hours, still same problem. My unit is a GO 720 Tony Harvie

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.

My sat nav xl one is off with the green light on, I cannot turn it on and there appears to be no reset button


First, check and make sure your battery is fully charged. Then try to do a "Reset" .... by pressing and holding down the ON/OFF button for 5 seconds (or a lot more) until the device powers on again. Yes, at times, it may take a minute or more ! of holding that button down.

Tomtom 700 dead


After checking around around the web it seems that you are not the only one to get the green screen of death. My suggestion is to hold reset for several seconds, release reset and hold the power button button for 10 seconds. If this doesn't work the only other option is to let the unit sit for several days to let the internal battery completly drain, once drained theirs a good chance it will function normally, this allows any temporary memory to be cleared. Good Luck & hope this helps L8R
