    Yay TomTom. I'll never buy another.

    My Tom Tom has stopped working as well, I used it to go to a location but it stopped when I was on the way home. I found the reset button and I pushed it but nothing happens. I hold the power button down and the green light comes on but I hear something that sounds like a hard drive starting and stopping. Is there some other way to get this restarted?

  • porschebabe Aug 21, 2008

    Tom Tom fully charged, worked yesterday - today nothing. Green light but no screen.

  • athornton Aug 26, 2008

    Tom Tom was working fine. Turned it off when I arrived at me destination. When I returned 45 minutes later it will not turn back on! It won't even urn on when I try to connect it to the computer charger. Before it went dead it had a prolonged telephone ringing sound (about 1 hour befre I initially turned it off).

SOURCE: tomtom wont turn on

If the green LED comes on OK and you have tried a re-set with a paper clip through the reset hole and it still won't switch on then the most likely cause is a blown chip inside the tomtom. This can be caused when you start your car. The extra strain of turning the engine causes voltage spikes to arrise in the cars wiring , just as your starter motor turns. Unfortunatly this extra high voltage , called a "spike" can damage the tomtom. Only solution is to take it to a specialist repairer or to return it to tomtom for repair. Don't let your average electronics shop have a go they are more likely to make a mess inside . Its a specialist job !

Tomtom sav nav 910 wont turn on even after pushing reset button with paper clip as recomended. It is fully charged. Any other suggestions


Hallo! Try this: press reset +poiwer on for 20 secs, release reset but keep pressing power 20 secs, it should power the light on, very fast to connect to computer in this time, because it stais on 10 secs, open it like a map, backup ALL data in a new map, format the device, connect to TomTom Home, make the upgrades, copy the maps Maps and Voices back to your GPS.

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of


If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.

    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.
      tomtomgox00.jpg
    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).
      tomtomone.jpg
    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.
      tomtomrider.jpg
  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

Have TomTom 910 Having Problems Charging it.


The 910 satnav/mounting interface is dreadful- it is the cause of half the problems on this site! You can order the battery on the net. Google VF5 or Samsung ICR18650-24. To replace, strip off rubber strips. You need a mini star screwdriver, carefully pull unit out of cover gently levering at the side. Carefully observe plastic carry through which acts as button on the front and base clip underneath- this must be reinserted correctly. It is a vital part of the structure- observe it carefully! Remove upper small PCB and large PCB after removing 2 electrical connectors. Battery located under PCB. Dispense with rubber mounting. Reassemble carefully battery holder (loosely until you have placed previous plastic carry through). Tighten battery holder to hold plastic strip which must be located over mounting bracket, carefully reinsert both electrical connectors (different sizes), reattach large PCB then small one, then screw back in cover. It is likely you will then be stuck on initial screen with unit not booting correctly. You must then do software resets (opened paperclip inserted into invisible hole next to connecting strip at back). It is likely that you will have to connect to Tom Tom HOME to do this. I failed here as the darn unit will not connect to my computer.

An awful piece of equipment- I have gone Garmin!

When i turn it on it freezes.


Hello, I own a TomTom also. I have listed the procedures from TomTom Home and hope this will work. First try a soft reset (Reset button is located at the bottom of the TomTom device next to where the DC plug plugs in). Make sure your batteries are fully charged up or the USB cord is plugged in.

If your device is not starting up properly, follow the steps below: 
  1. Soft reset your device. *

  2. If your device still does not start up, then reinstall the TomTom application using HOME
If you have backed up your TomTom to your computer, then you can reinstall the TomTom application from your backed up data. *    In rare cases, your TomTom device may not start correctly or may stop responding. If this happens, try resetting your device. A reset does not delete any data.
