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

My tom tom 710 is dead the green light is on but nothing on it!


Change the motherboard, green light on and nothing happening is quite common, you can find motherboards on ebay for £22 +p&p.

Its quite easy to do and worth while as the 710 and 910 are still very good units.

Tom tom go 710 wont switch on


Press the tiny reset button...

You'll need the pointy end of a paperclip or a pin.

Turn your TomTom upside down and look at the underneath, with the screen facing away from you.

Starting at the back and moving towards the screen, you'll see a small traingular-shaped piece of rubber, then a plastic area with a small hole to the left, then the circuit board with all the little gold connectors.

It's that small hole that's the reset button, push your paper clip or pin in there. Your TomTom should reset straight away, but sometimes it takes a few tries for various lengths of time.

Enjoy your newly restored TomTom!

My Tom Tom don't work at all


TomTom had a similar issue with another model the past year. Contact their customer support at 866-486-6866. It may require a patch or another solution, but their customer is great, and I wouldn't throw in the towel on your device yet.

Try giving it a full charge. I used different model Tom Tom that would not turn on even if plugged in until after the battery was recharged.

Tom Tom Go 710 Manual


best place it to get one is by emailing someone whos selling faulty ones on ebay. They will probably have some scrap tomtoms they have to put in the bin and the manuals will be surplus. Ive got many manuals here but its a long way to send them from UK to down-under.
