Well i am writing this wile I am trying this out...
I have a TomTom Go 910 that has a RED CROSS FLASHING on the bottom corner, what I have found is that if you have backed up your TomTom Go i maybe able to reset the TomTom Go on my computer but if you havent you may have to find on try finding one on google but i have a TomTom Go 910 you can download the 910 on http://rapiddigger.com/download/backup-go-910-rar-9110176/.
after you found the back-up you can connect your TomTom Go to your computer using the USB provided from your TomTom Go, replace the doggie file with the new one, then this should change it back to the FIRST update given...
(WARNING >> PLEASE scan the file befor you put it in your TomTom Go it might contain a very very evil virus<< WARNING)
Are you using a generic charger? or the official TomTom one? While they might all be 12v output (car)- 5v input (unit end) they are different ampages etc. If you are using a generic car charger then a lot of GPS units consider it to be a computer and so goes to docking/sync mode.
The unit may only sound the voice properly if you running off a tomtom charger.
Had a similar problem with my GO 930, i.e. it would not connect to the PC. As several people have suggested, it appears to be a problem with the docking station connection. I found, by trial and error, that this works for my system (so far, every time):
Remove GO from docking station. Switch on and allow to boot up. Place FIRMLY in docking station The Go should now recognise that it is linked to a PC and will ask if you wish to connect. Proceed as normal.
As mentioned, my sytem is a 930, so this may not work for 910s.
