Question i have to ask is 1- how much do you kno9w about electronics and 2- how brave are you. The following WILL void your warranty if you still have one.
READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE YOU EVEN START
1- Based on a poor picture of the unit that i found it looks like two screws in the back of the unit need to come out, might be four screws in there but pic only shows two.
2- With your small precision flat screwdriver push under the seam in the plastic and gently pry the two halves of the case apart, be careful as these units have snap taps under the plastic that you can't see till you get it apart.
3- DO NOT PULL ON THE TWO HALVES OF THE CASE YET. Look under the back of the case since the picture shows what looks like a button or a speaker in the back, this means wires running to something on the back half of the case, Look and see what it is and see if you can find the connectors to these things, should be small white connectors that you will have to GENTLY pull out of the connection bed.
4- Now that you have done that you should see something that looks like a cell phone battery, that's your prize, again look for the connector and gently remove from the connection.
5- replace with new battery and reverse order to install and reassemble your gps device. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Tom Tom Go 720 battery replacement - how do I do


Replacing the TomTom Go 720's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:

The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TOMTOM+GO+720&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Go 720 is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this Helps, aaron

I have a tomtom720 that is now refusing to go past the start up screen. Pressing reset or holding the 'on' button does not do anything. How might I reboot or reload software?


Try to restore the firmware first. If that fails, there may be a motherboard issue. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.

Tom tom go 720 frezes


Your tomtom needs a new battery for starters as a bad battery will do this trust me or not. Now if its new and i mean straight out of the box return it as its going to have more issues in the long term. You also might try reloading the software on it but I am sure its the battery. Thanks please do leave postive feedback for my advice.

I HAVE A TOM TOM GO 720 I SWITCH IT ON NO PROBLEM BUT WITHIN 30 SECONDS BATTERY WITH A YELLOW I IN A TRIANGLE COMES UP AND GOES OFF


The GO 720 charges quite slowly when attached to the in-vehicle cigarette lighter cord. If you have a USB attachment (that allows you to connect the GO720 to your computer) just insert the GO720 into the USB cradle - you don't have to turn it on - and let it sit there for about 10 hours. You should see the green light on the GO720 indicating that power is being received. In fact, I don't think you even need to turn on the computer, as power is always fed to the USB circuit. If you see the green light, then the GO720 is being charged. I think your GPS just needs a good charge.
