    u mean connection is not getting established..
    may be software problem..
    try a new driver downloaded and installed

  • dewan nafees ahmed May 14, 2008

    try a soft reset and see if it works..
    if it works then

    You may be running into a DB cache overflow problem. GPS mapping
    programs are pretty memory-intensive, and need lots of room to work
    properly.



    This is why it seems to work after a Soft Reset - the DB cache gets cleared when you perform the task.



    You might want to try a program like "Flush It" (remove the space when
    searching for it. I can't type it correctly here as it looks like a
    curse to the Forum software!).



    Flush It! can be set to clear the cache several different ways (app
    start, app stop, when memory falls to a certain point, etc.).

When I switch on my TomTom, SD card has a red cross?


This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card, Connect the device to your computer. Open the TomTom Home application. Click on 'Update My Device'. This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you update.

I have a tom tom 720 after connecting it to my computer. it will not turn on a white cross in a red circle keeps flashing


Ah, another case of the Red X. No worries, it can be fixed. Most likely your connection was interrupted during an installation or removal of software features. Follow this guide to get your TomTom back up and running.

TomTom GO 720 - flashing red circle with white cross on screen


Hi, I am back, just got the problem solved, I called their tech support at no charge (866-486-6866, Glen) , really good service.
First turn your firewall off (if you have one). You need to go into your 720 with the TomTom Home software and erase the downloaded software (with the remove items from my device) and reset the device (little reset button under the unit keep it pressed for 5 seconds), place it back in the cradle and restart your computer and than restart the 720 , bring the TomTom Home program up, and when the TomTom Home software in your computer restarts and detects the 720 it will tell you that you need to update the application, if it doesn't than you force the update by going to the add maps option, select items on my computer, select applications and press the add button, when done, go back and to device (option in top of your screen) and select disconnect device, restart your 720 and it should be back to life with the upgraded software.
Hope this helps
