Re: tom tom 1 4n00.012

Is the unit connect to a power cable while you're using it? Sounds like the battery just runs down. Check your power cable, is it properly connected to the cigarette lighter adapter? Maybe your cigarette lighter is defective and the unit is not gettting power, therfore running on battery all the time

My tom tom gets stuck once I press yes for the voice that I want. Then it goes and resets and continues to reset. I can't get it to start.

Then you will have to connect it to a computer, back up your files, format the tom tom gps device and restore the software and try to turn it on to see if it will do the came. That will do the job for you. After doing that your gps device will be in good condition and work properly once again.

Hope this information helped you.

Tom tom 1 will not switch on

Charge it through the computer using your USB cable for a good 2 hours and try switching it on again. It happened to me and it seemed to work fine after that.

Won't stay on

Have you installed anything lately? Do you have any sd card installed? Usually this is the cause for it to crash. There is a reset on the bottom of the nuvi, when it locks up blank, press the reset button and see what happens...

Tom To Rider

Unfortunately I have encountered the same issue with my Tom Tom Rider. I have worked out the problem is between the mounting bracket and the GPS unit. There are 4 little metal pins that spring in and out on the mounting braket that are supposed to be in touch with 4 metal cylindrical metal surfaces on the rear of the GPS head unit. This looks good in design and theory, but the GPS unit does not always make contact with the metal pins, hence allowing no charge to GPS unit and automatically turns itself off whilst riding. I have sort to overcome the issue with building the rear of GPS head unit cylindrical contact points with solder. It is a fiddly fix, but to date this has overcome the issues you have named up. A small drop of self fluxing solder is all that is required. No more than 2mm projection off GPS unit. Allow the solder to adhere to contact and move soldering iron towards the base of GPS unit. The reason for doing this is to allow the pins extra contact surface. I found my pins on the mounting unit did not line up with GPS head unit when fitting together from new. It's not easy to see this, but shine a torch light as you bring 2 surfaces together and you will see what I mean. The mounting braket pins were slightly lower than the GPS contacts. This is what causes the problem. Hopefully Tom Tom will redsign these on the next model or allow more contact space and tolerances to eliminate this frustration. Regards, Nicky (fellow Tom Tom Rider)
