Question about Tomtom GO 510 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

TomTom 510 Sat Nav

Dear Sir/Madam,
I accidentally connected the wrong mains charger my Tom Tom 510. (but only 6V dc as opposed to the correct 5V dc charger) This resulted in a smell of electrical burning and a bright white screen which I was unable to switch off. After several hours the battery was drained and the screen returned to the normal off state. It it worth mending?
Thank you for your help.
Paul

Most likey its not worth fixing. Look at it like this. While it may have only been 6 volts versus 5. One volt in a 5 volt system is a 20 percent increase.
If you took something that ran on 120 volts and plugged it into a 144 volt source you can figure the damage that would do.

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home


The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

Where to get in car charger for evesham 7211


Hi.
I just bought an in-car charger for the 7211 on ebay.
It is 5v with a 2amp flow.
It's not for the mini-USB port on the side but for the dc input hole on the other side.
I've just plugged it into my laptop via the mini-USB port to see if it will charge that way but it doesn't seem to be doing.
Hope this helps.

Is there a reset button? See this from PocketGPSworld.com: Reset hole The Reset hole is hard to find, you need to first remove it from the mount, turn it upside down, and within the mounting base area of GO you will see two interface slots (currently only one is being used) and towards the front of the unit on the base you will see a little hole marked reset. This is just like soft resetting a Palm or Pocket PC, it requires something small like a paperclip, and nothing was supplied with GO to enable you to easily reset the device.
