Wehave a tom tom go 530 (refurbished). Its

Wehave a tom tom go 530 (refurbished). Its initial set up was fine. Then the first time I tried to set up to navigate it went off and it would not re set. I left in on charge on the computer alnight. Still would not come on, although the charging light was on. I have just tried plugging it into the car and it came on with poor signal. Is there something wrong with it?

Let's hope there's nothing wrong with your TomTom. Here's some information that may assist you with your Go 530.

Your TomTom GO must be outside to locate your current position. The first time you start your GO, it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position.

If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.

In the future, your position will be found much faster, normally within a few seconds.

Once your GO has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full color and shows your position on the map.

Finding your position faster:

To find your position faster, use the home dock in combination with TomTom HOME on your computer. When connected to the Internet, TomTom HOME
automatically downloads information which helps your GO locate your position faster.

click here to download TomTom Home.

Note: Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield that may prevent TomTom GO from locating your current position. If this is a problem in your vehicle, use the TomTom External
Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks.

My tom tom display is in a foreign language how do i fix this


Best to reset to factory settings and then reconfigure the unit as per instructions in the attached manual. All the maps and data will be lost and you will have to re-install. So make sure you have access to the map files which can be reloaded after the settings are complete.

Reset button is shown in diagram on page 2. Good luck. http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/one3rd/refman/TomTom-ONEv3-en-GB.pdf

5 MPH DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAR AND TOMTOM GO 530


The TomTom is being tracked by upto 11 satellites, therefore the speed on your TomTom is correct. Generally a speedo in a car is around 5-10% inacurate.

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

My tom tom keeps looping on the start up menu


I to had this same problem. I just about pulled my hair out. The way I fixed mine was to use Tom Tom Home to operate the Tom Tom. It was able to get past the loop and finish the initial set up. I then unhooked it from the computer and it was working by itself.

My speaker did the same, brand new out of the box, but I ran TomTom Home and it upgraded my firmware. Since then, no issues, and perfect clarity
