Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS Receiver
I think It is all about charging. When the green LED is on TomTom should be charging. But quite often it isn't (even if green LED is on) as it is not shown on the batter status (should shown charging on the right top corner of the screen). So when the battery is empty it switches off. I tried to use car mount kit or stationa car kit. It worked only if I slightly pressed the unit to the Mount Kit. It must be sth with connection between unit and mount kit - i.e. conncection has many pins.
I think it can apply to many other users, when trying charging or reseting theri TomTom
Have you guys tried cleaning the pins with some contact cleaner or alhcihol

It isn't heat related, mine is doing the same thing as is my Dad's. I have used mine in the heat, but my Dad's hasn't been used in about a month. I think it has to do with the last software update. That is when my problems started

I have had problems with my TomTom720.
First for the past 2 weeks it turns itself back on after I turn it off... sometimes I have to turn it off 2-3Xs until it finally shuts down.
Now... it just quit working. It won't turn on at all.
I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be heat related. It has been over 100 (in the car over 110) and I think the heat may mess with it.
