Device comes on but shows flashing X and nothing else.


The flashing X is usually asscosiated with a corrupt memory card or a pirate copy of a map.
if it is the later then restore the device from a backup to go back to your original map.

If it is a corrupt card then carry on reading below

This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.

This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.
You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your SD card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the SD card

It should now work

My gps tom tom turns itself on waht could be


If you search for "TomTom turns itself on", you will find that there appears to be a problem which TomTom will not acknowledge. Mine always turns itself back on exactly (to the minute) one week after being switched off and runs the battery down. Tomtom have got me to reformat and had it back for repair but the problem remains

Red x on Tom Tom


This is TomToms fix, apparently something went wrong with the software, my advice would be to make a back up of the device using the TomTom home software.
This issue can come from disconnecting the device while it is attached to the computer and software while it is busy, always make sure you use the eject device in the TomTom home software if you are connected to the PC.

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.

6. After removing applications, unplug from computer and switch off ONE XL.
7. Connect ONE XL and computer again and switch on your ONE XL.

Tomtom xl 330.s wont speek street names


Yes Nickarino is right.
When I switched on my new tom tom it gave me that option to speak street names and it vanished after selected a different voice. I checked all manuals and web references in Tom Tom - none of them list it.
Like Nick said - what you need to do is swtich the voice type to SAMANTHA and it will show the option "Read Street Names Loudly". I jumped on it and said yes ..!!!
Thanks Nick !!
