First thing is do you get the start-up screen when you turn it on?
If that appears tro be OK you may have inadvertantly changed the screen brightness.
Remove from the mount and rotate the unit in your hand to the light. Tap once on the screen and then tap where the light bulb icon is. Drag the brightness up to full scale. Also make sure it is not in night-time mode with its brightness turned way down. Not that you would probably suffer the same problem that I had but the screen will go blank and actually give you a thermometer reading if the unit overheats from being exposed to a locked car in full sun, Mine reported 52 degrees Celsius and failed to work until I cooled it down in front of the air-conditioner vents. Of course it was summer and I live in North Queensland Australia! Hope it comes good for you.

you need to open it and check the wires behind the power board sometimes those wires get loose from the solder weld the battery its ok if you have it connected to your car lighter, I had that happen to me so I opened it and found broken solder welds at the end of those wires, it is a very delicate work to get to it but I think that's what it is.

I have recently purchased a Garmin GPS and have found that the streets around my home are not showing on it. How up to date is the information provided?

well is this a new unit?

data is usually 12 months behind, due to time to collect and render for the various brands. If you think your GPS data is out of date more than 12 months return it to the seller and demand an update.

Nip into another seller and check what releases they have on their demo units, compare with yours and then make your claim against the seller you purchased from

Pioneer Avic-F700BT worked perfectly fine for 7 months but....

My pos just did this today after I got in a hot car (had windows up for security).
Briefly displayed the PIONEER default splash screen, LED lighting was the default ... light/bright pink (to match pioneer?).
Then screen goes black, then backlight gets fully dimmed and LED dims to darks white (R,01G,01B01)

Wouldn't really respond to anything... but plays CD in background.

I had a brainstorm while sitting in my car at ACC (ignition) and reading the lame online TS guide.
I turned my car to ON and put the gear shift in REVERSE.
The screen flashed to the password, and flashed black again....
Some how the system stablelized after some time and I resurrected it*.

* After tinkering I found ALL settings except the NAV data/settings had been lost.
In addition I believe corruption has occured in the memory holding the voice data. TTS... that phone thing voice command wont display when i press down on the Multi-nav? dial. Also system crashes when I try to access language settings. Sometimes a Windows CE error message bled thru reporting a fatal application error. Illegal operation request...

Hope this helps. I think my POS is going back to cartoys before my 30days is up.

My tomtom will not switch is charging up but there is no picture at all i have only had it 9 months but i cant find my reciept

If you charged it with a credit card, you at least have the date and place of where purchased. If under a year, you should be able to return it to the store from where you purchased it and they should be able to furnish you with a receipt.

You cannot use a sd card from another tomtom. The sd card is coded for each individual device. About the only thing you can do is to purchase a 1 gb card (no larger because it won't be supported). Insert the blank card into your unit and connect it to your pc. Go to my computer and see which drive the tt is. format the card and then open tomtom home. This will load your operating system back onto your card. I don't know if you can download a free map or not. Check the tomtom forums for more information concerning maps.
Hope this helps
