Hi, for a reset you dont have to open the case. go tomtom.com, select support, search reset, and read all possibilities. i suggest to go first for a soft reset. good luck.

Tom tom go 710 will not switch on


I guess that you have already made sure the battery is charged enough to power the Sat Nav.... In the back of the Tom Tom where the cradle attaches, there is a tiny hole at the top where you can insert a small object such as a sewing needle in order to press the reset button; However, you may find that like mine the hole doesn't line-up with the button and therefore you can't reset the unit unless you remove the casing. if this is the case it's best to search You Tube and watch the short video as to what exactly to do! (it's really not hard)

Hope this helps

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

When I try to connect my tom tom 720 to my lap top a message says usb connection is not recognised


Have you tried to connect to a desk top through the USB port to isolate the laptop or GPS issue.

If you get the same problem with a desktop than I would suggest that you perform a hard reset to the GPS. This is done through the pin hole in the case labled "Reset" insert the tip of a paper clip into the reset hole and reset the device.

If this fails try reloading the GPS software, there are instructions on the Tom Tom web site

I have brought this device 2 months back in october 2009,but now it is not catching the satellite,and not showing further route..i have tried couple of time .its not working


You're asking about a Tom Tom, right?

Try hitting Reset.

1) Find the Reset button (in a hole on the bottom of the unit). Press and hold it using a paperclip or a dull pin.

2) Turn the unit back on. Does this solve the problem?

If not, try:

Reset Factory Settings. To do this, first Show All Menu Options (this is from the Preferences menu).

Then, again from the Preferences menu, tap Reset Factory Settings.

Have you made a backup of your Tom Tom? You do this from Tom Tom Home on your home computer.

My tom tom is stuck on opening page. cannot do anything with it.


Most TomTom GPS have a small reset button underneath. you will need a paper clip to activate the reset button. This should start it up and clear the locked out state you described

Tom tom one not turning on used 3 months


I had some problems with the 920. It started to not turn on. The it just died completely. After opening the case and testing the battery. I concluded the battery was dead and Un-chargable.

Which is most likely the case with yours.
Try this first. Then contact customer support.
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card

Unless you are good with electronics. Then id change the battery myself. I used a cell phone battery.
It has worked for the last year.

Regards and I hope this helped.

To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay).
Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.

Turn the tomtom on, and then press the reset button on the bottom of the unit with a paperclip. After the reset turn off the unit and then turn it back on. Make sure you have not dislodged the sd card from the unit.
