Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Have a TomTom One XL. Freezes when switched on. It won't reset (even if i hold the reset button down for 15 seconds). And it won't connect to the computer. Have allowed the batter to drain and then recharge and it does exactly the same. The device is completely unusable. Any help would be gratefully accepted.

How to change language from Spanish back to English?




When you first switch on your device, you have to answer a few questions to set up the device. When these questions appear in the wrong language, it's best to soft-reset your device.

Devices which are reset by holding the On/Off button:
Press the On/Off button and keep holding it until you hear the TomTom start sound. This takes at least 15 seconds. Also keep holding down the On/Off button if your device switches off or shows the start-up screen.

Devices which are reset using a paper clip or pen:
Press the reset button using a paper clip or something similar for 15 seconds. Then press the On/Off button for at least 5 seconds.



To change the language on your navigation device, do the following:
  1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main menu.

  2. Tap Change preferences.

  3. Tap the arrow in the bottom right corner until you see the Change language button. Tap Change language.

  4. Tap on a language to select it. 1381_select_language_uk.gif

    Follow the instructions on the screen to confirm your language selection and choose a voice.

I have the xl live and after an update which failed, my tom tom has now failed. I have tried a reset but i can only get the legal notice page the i agree touch screen fails to move on. can you help.


Hello,

The TomTom is a portable GPS for automobiles that assists the driver with navigational maps and driving instructions. If the TomTom freezes up or glitches, you can reset the system back to the factory settings. Users that have the 22 Range TomTom models such as the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL can hold down the power button to reset their system. However, the TomTom GO has a manual reset button on the device.

Instructions And What You Need To Solve The Problem.

  • Paperclip
  1. Remove the TomTom GO from its cradle.
  2. Turn the unit upside down.
  3. Look for a small hole in the bottom of the unit. It will be located just behind the release button. The reset button is recessed inside this hole.
  4. Straighten out one end of the paperclip.
  5. Press the recessed button by inserting the straightened end of the paperclip into the reset hole.
  6. Hold the button down for ten seconds, then pull the paperclip out of the hole. Your TomTom GO should now be reset back to the factory settings.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

I have tried to connect my tomtom to my apple computer and some of the downloads failed as it said the device wasn't connected. Know the tomtom has frozen with the 'tomtom' screen and logo. you can...


It seems that some versions of the Apple OS are a problem. I had this issue with my tomtom. I managed to solve it, eventually, and only by a chance remark, by connecting to an older Mac. Avoid OS X 10.6.5 and 10.6.6 (at least).
TomTom support got their in the end - but only after about 5 weeks!

Where is the reset button on the Tomtom xl340s


The TomTom XL 340-S uses the power button as a reset. With the unit turned off, hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds, until the TomTom turns on. As soon as the unit turns on, release the power button. The unit is now reset.

Try to hard reset the unit press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds and then if still not work check if there is a latest firmware update and also make sure to properly charge the unit for 3 to 4 hours.

Won't switch on


Connect it to the computer, then try to switch it on by pressing the button for 1-2 seconds. If it switches on, connect to tomtom home, update, and then switch off. Disconnect, then switch on again. You may have to reset it again by pressing the button for 10-15 seconds. I onl had this problem once, after my first download from tomtom home - I think I crammed too much info into its memory!

My Tomtom XL won't turn on. No reset button apparent


The reset button is on the bottom of your device. On my older model XL it is just above the sd card slot. If you have the newer model XL 330 then you have to hold down the on/off switch for 20 seconds to do a reboot. If you have not used it in a while let it charge for 30 monutes before doing a reset.
Hope this helps
