My tom tom will not activate


try to reset the unit. There is a small hole on the bottom of the unit, insert a small pin on the hole and hold it for a couple of seconds and it will reset it, you might loose the addresses saved so you might want to copy them before resetting it.

TOM TOM GO 910 TROUBLE SHOOTING


There is a tiny reset button on the back of the device where the mount goes. Its hard to spot so `go to the tom tom web site to get help with this if you can't spot it. Use a paper clip and press it in this recess hole for 30 seconds. This will reset the device and should work after that. make sure you back up your device and keep a paper clip in the car!

My Tomtom 910 is having charging issues.


Hi Evan,

The rubber bungs often come out but it doesnt usually effect the charging although the rubber bung is there to help reduce vibration when used with a mount in a car. I have had many 910's here in the past with the bungs missing but never had any problem with them latching into the mount. I would think your problem is either some other plastic part is worn or broken. However , if you feel that the problem is the bung then I would go with your instinct but you might have to find something else to fit in the hole as parts are not readly available for TomToms unless you buy a whole unit thats faulty to use as parts / spares. Im'e sure something could be made to fit possibly part of an eraser or similar rubber part. You might also be able to use a small rubber cable grommet or similar.
As far as I know , it isnt possible to get a virus on to the TomTom as such but it is possible to get corrupted data on the hard drive ( or SD card with other models ) especially if you download things such as voices etc. I have had TomToms here were owner has downloaded comic voices and the files have caused very strange things to happen with the TomTom. I even had one where a voice file was making it look like the screen was damaged , so , your'e correct in thinking that way. In your case though , I doubt if the dowloaded voices have effected the charging , its more likely the poorly fitting mount thats casuing your problems.
If you manage to get the green light on ( this only shows power is going to the TomTom , it does NOT confirm charging ) then leave it for a few hourse before attempting to turn the TomTom on as that will ensure a resonable amount of charge especially if you battery is very flat.

Hope this helps . ( please rate the above reply if you think its helpful in any way )

Good Luck

Freezing on start up


I have had a aproblem with my digiwalker Mio, which also was freezing up. The only way to sort it is a HARD RESET. The problem in my case appears to be due to the start up program initiating GPS/Tom Tom at the same time. good luck
