TOMTOM 510 locks up

My TOMTOM GO 510 keeps locking up. Only the backlight in the LCD is illuminated. You cannot reset the device until all the battery power is exhausted. Once is has totally discharged you can then reset the device and it will continue to work for an indefinite amount of time. Then it will lock up again.

Is there a reset button on a go 510 live


Yes, the reset button is actually a small hole at the base/bottom of the unit. You'll want to use a straightened-out paper clip or something similar to put into the hole and press it for a few seconds (until the unit powers off) .... after you've fully charged your battery.

MY TOMTOM GPS NEED TO BE TO RESET


Hello,

I will advice you reset the unit, this might help fix the abnormality with the white screen problem. follow these procedure to reset your tom tom gps.
Make sure your battery is charged before you begin. TomTom suggested allowing your device to charge for at least 2 hours before resetting it. Remove your device's SD card from the card slot.
Find the "Reset" pinhole button on the bottom of the device.
Hold the "Reset" button down for 10 to 15 seconds or until your device resets itself. You will need a flattened paperclip or another small metal object to reach inside the pinhole.
Power the TomTom back on and insert your SD Card. You have now reset your TomTom gps and this should fix the white screen problem.

Take care.

Tomtom 510 doesn't reset


Before you keep resetting your tomtom I would intall a new battery. Call your closest "batteries plus store" or "radioshack store" and then try to reset it, it might be only the battery and nothing to do with the reseting.....

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!!!

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.
