Question about Tomtom ONE XL GPS

I have a TOM TOM one XL GPS and it will not power

I have a TOM TOM one XL GPS and it will not power up. For the past 6 months the unit was difficult to turn on or turn off but now it will not turn on at all. When you put it on the charger the green light comes on. Any suggestions.

If you where having difficulty with the on/off button, it sounds like the microswitch under the plastic. Unless you can do micro soldering you can not fix this yourself. You should get a quote from tomtom.

My Tom Tom XL 325 wont hold a charge while left off


Hi, leaving the unit in the cradle exposed to the sun during hot days has been known to fry the battery causing loss of battery capacity. perhaps this could be your problem. I replaced the battery in my last GPS 4 times because of this before I analysed the problem. This will most likely be outlined in your user manual too. You might also compare the output capabilities between your blackberry and tomtom charger - it is entirely possible that you are starving the unit of a decent charge if the blackberry charger is not to the same current capacity as the tomtom charger.

I have a tomtom xl that was bought 2 months ago and working perfectly until today! it will not turn on or do anything!


If iIf you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.

You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.

Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release

You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.

Seeing a few start up issues around at the moment but am not sure if it is a tom-tom update issue or just the tom-tom itself.

If you do a hard reset you may have to set some of your preferences back too.

Dont forget to charge it for a few hours first before trying to use it !

Tom Tom One XL has frozen and will not switch off (or do anything). When in Tom Tom Home it keeps telling me to switch it on. Any solutions?


Try holding down the power button on the unit for a good 10 seconds or so, this should force it to power down. If it does not please reply and I will see if I can find further information.

I have a Tomtom XL and lately its taken forever to find gps signal, i tried everything like resetting it which works for a bit but then has that problem again. Can someone help. thanks in advance


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.

Tomtom not finding gps satellites


i had exactly the same problem, i dont really know how i solved it but first i thought it could be a memory problem slowing the gps signel so i reset the tom tom to factory settings then downloaded the updates from the tom tom home program of corce i lost all my destinations but i didnt want to do a back up just incase one of the updates had a virus or something so if u want to keep them i sugest u write them down first.and then i got a safty pin and pressed the reset button underneath where the memory card goes twice the second time i held it down for about 10 seconds then i looked for updates again from tom tom home. after that in tom tom home there is an option where u can operate your tom tom on your pc so i tryed that and i put in a destination on the pc and clicked on demo tour so i watched the route first it was a bit slow but started to speed up a little. after it had finished i un plugged the sat nav and went for a walk with it around the house soon as i went out side and set a destination it found 6 gps signels,make sure yhe battery is charged to at least half. well i hope anyone who follows my steps gets the same results, thought i lost 200 quid cos i have had it over two years and its only guarenteed for 12 months. well good luck.
