Make sure it has a good charge on it (a few hours on the home charger if you have one) then locate the reset hole where the mount attaches ..(see picture) and use a paper clip to reset it...depress the reset for about 15 seconds...if theres nothing else wrong with it, it will restart...you might have to press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds also, after the reset.

Tomtom 510 unable to turn on.


Jun 11, 2009- Like I said before,we tried to power it up,even with the power supply hooked up, didn't start.I searched your site and found this. It worked. I pluged the charger in for power, green light on now,hold down the right hand lower corner of the screen (the screen itself) and while holding the corner down then hold down the ON button.The person who submitted this also said that it would reset the tomtom to the original setup that it was delievered with. We lucked out, our data was still there and working. By the way our battery was way way down. I wish I remembered the person who gave this solution, because he really deserves a BIG THANK YOU, and your site also THANKS. We would of throwed the thing away.How many were throwned away? THANKS BOB

Tomtom 510 will not activate. tried it with connection to electrical outlet and without being plugged into the outlet. It quit working after it was plugged into an automobile cigarette lighter plug, then...


After posting my problem, I did some more browsing and came across this on the amazon webiste:

31 of 32 people found the following review helpful: stars-4-0._v45457020_.gif Cure for not able turn on the Go 510, 16 Jun 2007 By Sirius (Essex) - See all my reviewsI like the tomtom so far the only niggle was it would not turn on once.
No troubleshooting on instructions, found cure on internet,reset button
underside. With the tomtom turned over and the card slot on top right hand
side there is a small rubber foot at the half moon shaped enterance, up at about the 10 o'clock position from the foot,but before the green circuit
board there is a small half round cut out with a hole under you need to press in this hole for a few seconds with a paper clip to reset. I wonder how many people have sent their tomtoms back that would not turn on.

Tried it & worked a treat!!! Newcastle here we come again ...

Tomtom 510 will not switch on.


Hi!
I have in my possesion 2 Tom Tom 510s both with exactly the same problem, one was used with the incorrect (Nokia) cigar lighter charger the other suffered a Voltage spike from the vehicle it was used.
Both the input transitors have blown and as they are so small they are virtually impossible to re solder. However there is a Guy on eBay who for £80 will repair it.
I bought a different system, £70 and although basic does what it says on the tin.
Sorry to bring bad tidings,

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
