TomTom Go 910

Mt unit works for about 10 minutes then shutsdown and restarts by itself and I have to reset the location I am looking for. This keeps happening until I want to throw this piece of junk out the window. Any suggestions?

Power to same, but not turning on, can't locate so-called "reset" button on bottom????


Looking at the docking area note the gold connection terminals and which end the round coaxial connector is at. You should also be able to see the green circuit board that the terminals are mounted to. Then next to that you'll see a section of the plastic casing that has a little rubber piece in it. At the end of that part of the case opposite the coaxial connector mentioned earlier you should see a small notch in the plastic. That is the reset button. With the unit on use a regular size paper clip and gently press it in and you unit should reboot.

Safety lock


Hi there,
Yes, I too have experienced a problem with locking up when I take my TomTom 910 out of the dock after being connected to my computer. I also took my TomTom back to shop and was shown how to do a Hard Re-set on it. Firstly, you have to locate the reset button (which I see you have. Why it is hidden away in such an awkward position I don't know. I carry a pin/paperclip around with me for this purpose!) Press the reset button once until the TomTom screen switches off. Then with the TomTom off press AND HOLD DOWN the On button on top of your TomTom. Keep holding as white computer script appears on the screen. Carry on holding down until the remainder of the script appears to almost fill up the screen with script info and then this stops. Then release the On button and the TomTom icon will appear. After 2 to 3 minutes the TomTom should switch to show the current location map and look for satellites. Locking on to satellites can then take up to 15 minutes by the way.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck!!!

Tomtom 910 problem


Hummm, this is a tough one...

1: Can you see the device in win explorer?
If yes, try to run "chkdsk /f" in a dos prompt.

2: Do you have a working backup?
Then you can format the internal drive through Windows or similar. Format with FAT32, the reinstall backup.

3: Run the Clear Flash tool:

One can only presume you have not yet been fully schooled in GPS navigation, and to this i say - there is no better method then to start with the good old user manual.

I have taken the liberty of looking up the PDF link for you.

  • This is the GO 910 User Manual in PDF (online version)
http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/TomTom_GO_US.pdf

  • TomTom free software updates, product manuals and installation posters which you can either read online or download.

I discovered that there was a file on the 910 called CLMDATA which was corrupt. When I deleted this in Windows explorer, the unit started up and worked OK. This file is recreated when the unit starts up
