My tomtom is connecting fine to the computer, but once I get the pop up window saying my device is safe to properly disconnect and I disconnect it and try to turn it on without it being hooked up to the...


If you have a big red circle with a white X in it, it usually means that your TomTom One 'disk' is corrupted: first try a 'hard reset' , while the power is on, stick a small (tooth) stick through the hole under your unit base and opposite to were the USB connector go, for a few seconds, remove the pressur on the stick will cause a complete system reboot if possible.

Next, since you can connect to the computer, use Windows Explorer -> Properties -> Tools > Error-checking to scan and repair any problem with your Tomtom drive & check if you still have a problem.

If there is an error or you cannot reboot, hopefully you have a backup made either by copying the whole unit disk content or more traditionally via TomTom Home, I would suggest a complete restore your device content follow by a TomTom Home device update.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

I discovered that there was a file on the 910 called CLMDATA which was corrupt. When I deleted this in Windows explorer, the unit started up and worked OK. This file is recreated when the unit starts up.

eave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out (if it has one) hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.
STEP 1
Connect your TomTom to your
computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).
Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.
You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.
STEP 2
Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.
STEP 3
Copy the Yellow Folders from the
backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.
STEP 4
Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.
Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.
Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

Tomtom 910 will not connect to computer


Had a similar problem with my GO 930, i.e. it would not connect to the PC. As several people have suggested, it appears to be a problem with the docking station connection. I found, by trial and error, that this works for my system (so far, every time):

Remove GO from docking station.
Switch on and allow to boot up.
Place FIRMLY in docking station
The Go should now recognise that it is linked to a PC and will ask if you wish to connect.
Proceed as normal.

As mentioned, my sytem is a 930, so this may not work for 910s.
