You might have configured it to save battery. One battery saving feature involves turning off screen between instructions and another always turns off screen. See Screen capture from the manual (Go 730)

    I tried to give a simple answer to ONE simple question. But it appears that questions are aplenty and problems arise randomly. You can try to reset it. There is a button marked RESET at the bottom of the unit. You will have to use a straightened paper clip to press.
    Here is the link to the Tomtom ONE (which specific number) manual.

    I have the exact same problem. I get random letters especially 'L' on my TomTom GO- 730
    I have tried reseting it both manually and also using the factory reset found in preferences.
    Also following instructions from the Tom-Tom site, I tried to clear the Flash files and also restored bad sectors, BUT I still get the same display issues.
    If someone knows why this keeps happening, could you please advise?

I PURCHASED A 335TM XL TOMTOM GPS AND AFTER FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE VOUCHER, MY TOMTOM SCREEN, DISPLAYS " NO MAPS FOUND.


You have to first load maps on the gps before you can use it. You go to tom tom website, then you update your tom tom with maps, then register your device. After doing that, I assure you will be able to use the gps.

How do I get my GPS upgrade to in clude the new routes


unless you update maps on a regular basis (once a year or) new roads may not show on screen, the Map updates are not free,Garmin charges about $100 USD, the other issue is that not all the roads in the USA are in the software, so this can happen, the system is not perfect but it is good, just wanted you to knopw that Nextar doesn't have any updates, other do like Garmin and Tomtom.

I bought it in Australia, when i got back home (UK) i went to windows explorer and deleted the Australia map and replaced it with Great Britain map from a disc i had. When i turned on the device it says...


It is possible (almost certain) that the GB map you have is licensed to be used on that particular model. It is like Apple not allowing an Ipod owner to play music not downloaded through iTunes. You should consider buying a new GB, or even a European map valid for your GPS.

The screen on my Tom Tom One fades and then goes blank the voice still is on, how do I get to battery settings? Someone told me that it might be battery savings setting


Try touching the screen instead of the power button

If that brings up the display try the procedure below.

It can usually be fixed and tends to be just an option in the preferences menu

Touch a regular map display once

Now touch the Safety Preferences once

Press Done until you see the Turn Off Map Display

Select NEVER

Select DONE

Select DONE one last time to return to the map.

You didn't say how old it was and if it has a lot of use and is coming up to 2 years old it may need the battery replacing.

If my street goes directly to main street but my map sends me the long way to that main stree, how do I correct it.


i don't think you can. just go the way you normally go and the tom tom will recalculate the route and you shall be on your way.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.

Turn the tomtom on, and then press the reset button on the bottom of the unit with a paperclip. After the reset turn off the unit and then turn it back on. Make sure you have not dislodged the sd card from the unit.
