To my experience, battery capacity and life is very poor for the GO 730.
If brand new, the battery can last up to three hours but this degrades quickly. If its cold, the electrochemical process in the battery is slower, adding to the problem.
Also, switching off the TomTom does not really switch off, it goes to standby, still using a little power continuously. After a day or two this completely drains the charge.
I have my GO 730 since mid 2008 and battery is down to ten minutes of use after a full charge. In my car I use the provided car DC adapter, so I do not mind the bad battery too much.

Hello, I have tomtom 730. I got a problem cause, my tomtom after turning on shows battery sign with exclamation sign and it turning off itself. what does it mean, battery is bad or tomtom needs repair.


Hello,

The battery with exclamation point means the battery is not charged. Check your car charger fuse and the fuse box fuse for the power outlet. Next check the TomTom connected to your PC with the data cable, it should charge that way too. Let it sit for about 1 hour and then try to power it up and see if you get the same thing. If you do get the same thing then most likely the USB jack on the TomTom is broken off from the board. If that is the case you will need to have it serviced, you can either send it to TomTom or find a local repair company. If you are interested we do repair TomTom units with these issues. Contact us at tech@ccl-la.com if you need any more information.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Tomtom GO 730 and SMS reading?


The N95 is probably still not supported for your GO730 at this stage.
Some of the other N9x Models cannot send SMS.
