Tomtom 510 - packed up

I left my Go 510 on the windscreen mount last week on a sunny day and it has completely packed up. It won't switch on at all. The green light oes on when charging, but nothing else. It is 3 years old but hardly ever been used. Was working fine before the sunny day. Can anything be done to rescue it?

My Tomtom 510 will not switch on


You may need a new battery as yours may be completly dead. To test this, plug it into the charger and see if it comes on. If it does, then all you will need is a new battery which are pretty cheap to replace. If it still does not come on, you may have to send it to a repair place to be fixed.

What do you use to charge the tom tom 910 in the house


In the box you have a 'desktop' mount. Looks like the windscreen mount without the ******.
Also you will have got a mains power lead.
Plug the lead into the 'desktop mount' (Left hand side) of the stick up bit.
Plug in and put your 910 onto the mount. It will 'Click' into place
The green light will shine to show it's charging.

To release the unit from the mount PRESS in the button in the middle of the screen top rim and lift off.

Remember to turn of the power at the socket to stop wasting electricity

The usb part of the desktop mount goes into your pc so you can connect to TomTom home or just plain old 'back it up'
It is ok to have power switched on or off when connect to the pc, there is no need to unplug the jackplug.

Hope this helps

Lost password


Hi,
This is a simple anti-theft system that recognises it's woken up in a different place than where it went to sleep. The simple method is to return to where it was last, and try again. You will need the password eventually, but this should get it working.

Broke screen while trying to fix to windscreen


Are you talking about the easyport mount on the XL 330S model? If so it applies fairly easily in a secure snap. When I tested out the new mount, it was fairly easy to snap on without any added pressure. TomTom has great customer service and I'm sure they'll help out to the best of their ability and if it was in fact defective, you're bound to get a replacement. TomTom doesn't want any unhappy consumers. It's a shame it broke, because it is actually a great device.

Attaching the device


YES , try EBAY , search for tomtom vent mount. You can also buy special rubber disks that have a sticky back. The disk can be attached to the dashboard or some other plastic area. These allow the normal tomtom windscreen mount to fix to the disk.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
