TomTom Go720 shuts off spontaneously

The TomTom will on occasion (and it's happening more frequently) shut off spontaneously. This happens even when the power cord is plugged in and the green light is on. It didn't use to do this at all. What is the problem?

    I couldn't get it to power up after I used the TomTom 720 through my computer. It didn't matter how long I held the power switch down. I pressed the reset button and then was able to power up the unit using the power button.

The TomTom720 is an unreliable device. I had one for about nine months. I had it replaced twice and finally gave up. TomTom, after much prodding, finally issued a refund. I now have a Dash Express.

My tomtom one xl turns on by itself and runs the battery down .so when i need it it wont work unless i charge the battery ..pita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The spontaneous poweron is a bug in app 8.01. Models with that app tuen themselves on exactly 1 week after they've been turned off. A workaround is to hold the power button forever until you see a black sceen with debug writing on it. Then shut it off and it should stay off.

I HAVE A TOM TOM GO 720 I SWITCH IT ON NO PROBLEM BUT WITHIN 30 SECONDS BATTERY WITH A YELLOW I IN A TRIANGLE COMES UP AND GOES OFF


The GO 720 charges quite slowly when attached to the in-vehicle cigarette lighter cord. If you have a USB attachment (that allows you to connect the GO720 to your computer) just insert the GO720 into the USB cradle - you don't have to turn it on - and let it sit there for about 10 hours. You should see the green light on the GO720 indicating that power is being received. In fact, I don't think you even need to turn on the computer, as power is always fed to the USB circuit. If you see the green light, then the GO720 is being charged. I think your GPS just needs a good charge.

I have a go720 and it shuts off every 20 minuts it gives a warning first and if you see it you can cancle the shutdown. any sugestions on how to stop this.


If your device is on a USB DOCK and Computer it will shut down within 20minutes so it will give your tomtom optimal charge while on computer.

If your device is doing the same but on the USB car charger, there is a problem with the USB cable, its recognizing it as connection to a computer.

Best thing to do is try another car charger and see if that works.
Also make sure you don't use the home dock in the car.

Can't get a satalite signal for tomtom XL


This can happen on rare occasions in very built up areas. Most certainly it can happen indoors.

Using tom tom home from your computer plug your device in and tell it to update. most can now accept the gpsquick fix which will allow tom toms to pick up sats a little quicker

TomTom go720 computer voice stutters street names


Hi Guys,

This is a problem with the application v8.300
if you are using a map v8.XX or higher you will need to wait for the next appilcation update which should fix this.
if you are using a map vv7.XX or lower, you can remove the 8.300 application from your device and download v7.481 by updating your tomtom again, this will revert your application to an earlier version which you can use until the next application is released.

Hope this helps.

TomTom has difficulties locating satellites.


Download the latest software tomtom home and do a gpsquickfix. THis will solve the problem and tell the unit where the satellites are for the next 7 days. May need to do gpsquickfix often.
