How to recharge my tom tom online

By online, I'm assuming you mean connected to your computer (via the USB port).
Just power on your GPS, then connect your GPS to your computer, using the USB port, and decline the CONNECT to Computer prompt. The GPS will then still be plugged into the USB port and the battery will be charged.

My computer will not acknowledge my tomtom go 720 is plugged in to usb connector power light is on in charging cradle but computer says not connected

I had the same problem. I tried uninstalling software and re-installing it. That did not help. I reset my TomTom Go 720 with the reset button on the bottom of the unit. The computer then recognized my TomTom.

Tomtom 720 is not recharging and does not give the options when on home base

I would suspect a collapsed battery if it does not charge on its base.
Replace the battery, the life should be 2 years if used correctly. This means not plugging it to DC car power when starting engine. battery will collapse withing 6-12 months if you do
