GO 910 keeps freezing every step of the way. Deos not switch off.

Halfords tell me software is corrupted and needs offloading and reloading. Is that correct? If so,how would i do that?
On switch on the sreensaver comes on and stays on a long time before it moves on and no matter which button is pressed it does not respond.

1- Right click on your Desktop select New > Folder. Name this folder Backup.
2- Connect the GO 910 to the computer, reset the device using the reset hole on the bottom, and then turn back on.This following link will allow you to locate the reset hole on the GO 910
3- Click on Start > My Computer > TomTom Drive which should be under Device with Removable Storage.
4- Once you double click on the TomTom Drive, you will then be able to see all the files and yellow folders which you have on the GO 910.
5- I want you to select and copy all the files and yellow folders, go to the Backup folder you created and paste there.
6- Once that is done successfully, Click again on Start > My computer and this time I want you to right click on the TomTom Drive and select Format (FAT or FAT 32).
7- Once you have formatted, I will then need you to go back to the Backup folder and select the following 7 yellow folders: Western Europe Map, North America map, Guam map, Canary Island map, Zip, Loquendo TTS and Voices.
8- Copy those 7 folders and paste them back onto the GO 910 (Start > My computer > TomTom Drive, and click on paste into the TomTom Drive).
9- Once that is done, you can now download TomTom HOME (if you do not already have HOME installed) to re-install the application back on your GO 910. Could you please click on and select the first choice downloadable choice, which is Download (EXE). Download and save this to your desktop.
10- In TomTom HOME, if pop-up window does not appear notifying you of updates, then simply click on ''Update now'' which is on the top right hand corner.

TomTom 910 freeze, long turn on

It is possible that the map data(base) and/or the navigation software is corrupted.
Have you tried running a (fix) disk utility against your (internal or external) storage disk for the GPS ?
For instance, connect the GPS to your PC (Windows), and select (highlight) the (internal) "disk" on the GPS device. Under File - Properties, go to the Tools (tab) and run the "Error-Checking" option.
This utility may fix your data error.
If not, consider doing a restore (from backup) of your GPS disk storage.

Deos my acer kav60 hold 3gsim


It appears that the Windows is corrupted on your computer, you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction.
NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.
If the above steps are not working then I am sorry to say that it is going for repair as the Hard disk might have corrupted.

Thanks and regards,

Freeze, reboot cycle

Just had this problem with my Tom Tom XL IQ Routes. Screen freezing and then rebooting exactly every 3 minutes just after I had done an upgrade to maps and application software. After trying a software reload and getting nowhere I solved it by simply doing a factory reset using the factory reset option in the units menu. No problem since. Couldn't believe it was that simple. I will however be keeping a very close eye on it!

Garmin screen freeze

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Not starting, getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

My phone keeps freezing on the Windows Mobile page as soon as I turn it on and the only way to turn the phone back off is to take the battery out. Any reason why this is happening.

Sounds like you have to have the software reloaded. PDA phones are like computers and when they start getting tons of errors or resets its time to reload or check for updated software. Your local cell phone can tell you if there are updates and reload software

Tomtom go 910

I have seen the green screen problem a few times before and this was caused by corrupted data / software or an error in booting up.
If you can't turn any TomTom off then perform a reset by inserting a paper clip into the rest hole and give 1 short press of the reset button ( it's a tactile switch so you should feel it click ) then try switching the TomTom on again the normal way. ( reset buttons are normally found through a small hole underneath the TomTom ).
If the TomTom does switch on but continues as before with the loading up problem , then it's best to format and reload all files from your backup copy.
A RED CROSS indicated a loading fault / corrupted files / incomplete files / corrupted or damaged media . ( media , meaning SD card or hard-drive )
