    Magellan will reset the password if I send the unit to them, at a cost of $125.00
    I was told this yesterday by a tech.I was told by a dealer that they have a universal password but will not give it out.
    Have let the batteries discharge, Even unplugged them, could not access the secutity screen by repeatily hitting ESC. No luck.
    Request further assistance.
    Thanks for your effort.

    Have opened a support case with Magellan. Will keep you informed.

    I find it hard to rate you when I do not have the solution that I paid for. The request to Magellan will probably go un-answered, If so I expect a solution from you are your co workers.

Magellan should be able to provide you a patch that will reset the security password. You would need to open a support case with them through their website, or call their customer support center:

    Well, if I knew the secret password, I'd give it to you. But I'm guessing that secret is worth more than just ten bucks...

    I can't speak for's owners, but I can speak for myself.

    I don't have your $10, they do. You've come to this website as a user with a question you want answered. I've come to this website as a user who wants to answer other peoples' questions.

    The answer to your question, to the very best of my knowledge, is, "Magellan charges $125 to repair your problem."

    I'm sorry it cost you $10 to find out something you may already have known, but I'm just the messenger here.

    If you came here hoping that $10 would buy you a "universal password" worth $125, I'm sorry that didn't work out. It wasn't a bad gamble on your part.

    Like I said before, if I knew it I'd give it to you. But I don't, and your typing in all CAPS isn't going to change that. The thrust of my comment wasn't meant to rub anything in your face. I simply meant that the people who work for Magellan and know that universal password probably don't frequent this site.

    I'm just trying to build a rating here by helping people with problems to the best of my ability. I'm not trying to piss people off.

My car was in the shop to get my starter fix when i got my car back i turn on my deck it ask me for my password i put a password 3 time i think its was the wrong password now my deck is lock how could i go...

It appears that that when your car was in the shop to do what ever work, they disconnected the battery, then of course now, that you tried to put in password, after the third time it locked. So, what I would try is disconnecting battery, and maybe that will bring you back to the #key pad. As far as the right password, you would have to contact the manufacturer of your deck, or maybe place like CAR TOYS, they might have a code they know to override yours to reset a new password. I hope this helped you, Mike

Tom tom XL S- lost download no back up, touch screen does not appear to have any effect

Turn the unit upside down and locate a small hole labeled "RESET". Use the end of a paper clip to keep it pressed for 7 seconds and then release it. Try to turn on again. If this works, (using a usb cable) hook it up to a computer with internet access and download TomTom Home from here:

Click on the button labeled "UPDATE MY DEVICE"

Let me know how it goes so I can offer other possible solutions

Cant reset tom tom

I have now resolved my Tomtom 1 V2 problem (posted 12th Nov 2008).
I emailed Tom tom directly, describing the problem I was having, they responded almost immediately.
Tomtom could not have been any more helpful, the advice they gave me was spot on, and absolutely correct.
Not only did they solve the error I had with my unit, but they made it work much better than it ever had.
Briefly, I was told to join (for free) Tomtom Home, then delete all of the operating system on my satnav and download the latest Tomtom operating system, plus a few other upgraded programs.
I am no computer genius, and admit to being more than a little apprehensive in doing this, but, it could not have been a more straight forward or simple procedure.
As before, my Tomtom now works so much better, faster and with far more features.
Another benefit of being a member of Tomtom Home is that you are offered many products such as map updates at greatly reduced prices.
