Tomtom ONE XL doesnt go past start up screen


You may want to try operating your TomTom from TomTom Home. This has seemed to work for a lot of people who do not have backups, as you are connected to their site. Apparently, a file or two are updated, and you are back in business. Here's an example:

"Though not using a 720 my 500 wouldn't startup after upgrade to 7.16. Always stuck on the first splash screen.

After conncting to Home I chose Operate my Go and another file was downloaded. After this the device would boot up norammly when not connected to my PC.

Might be worth a try."

Start up screen


I had this same issue on my 930. You need to edit the bitmap with paint and make sure the dimensions are the exact same as the splash file. Rename the new splash screen with the same filename for the old startup screen and delete the old. That should fix it

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen


1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

Whereas:
GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

Try the reset button on the hole in the bottom of the unit. I had a frozen unit after attempting to upgrade and this made it work. Use a paperclip to press into the hole, it will reset the unit.
