Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Navigation screen switches to menu screen w/out touching it

My GO 720 randomly swithces from the main navigation screen, to the menu screen while I'm in the middle of a journey. Sometimes this happens repeatedly, and I have to keep tapping the 'Done' key in the bottom right to switch back to the navigation screen. Very dangerous & annoying when you're trying to drive. Any solutions?

    I don't want to switch off any icons....I don't think you understand what my problem is. The TomTom is automatically switching to the Main Menu screen w/out my touching it during navigation.

    Today is Tuesday, May 26,2009. Yesterday, I was navigating through Groton,Mass.
    when my screen kept changing from navigation to Menu-multiple times!
    I agree this is very dangerous and aggravating. Earlier that day, I had just completed a software upgrade. My Go720 had been working fine up till that point.

My samsung juke phone won't work. If I take out the battery and charge it, the screen will flash. The second I press the prongs together, it stops working.


You may need to reset the phone, but it will delete everything on the phone. You may follow the steps below:

  1. From the main screen, press the center of the navigation wheel to choose Menu.
  2. Select Settings & Tools then press the center of the navigation wheel to choose OK.
  3. Select Phone Settings then press the center of the navigation wheel to choose OK.
  4. Select Security then press the center of the navigation wheel to choose OK.
  5. Enter the lock code then press the center of the navigation wheel to choose OK.

  6. Select Restore Phone then press the center of the navigation wheel to choose OK.

I want to play Dvd's from Europe so I want a region code free.


1. Power ON the main unit (some unlocks work with, some with no disc inside)
2. Press the SETUP button (on the top of the player) to open the setup menu
3. Navigate to the PREFER menu using the button below the screen
4. Press NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, NEXT>, aPREVIOUS

(NEXT> and PREVIOUS are on the top of the player next to the SETUP button. Don't use the menu navigation buttons below the screen for this.)

5. The current Region of the player should be displayed on the screen

6. Use the menu navigation UP/DOWN buttons (below the screen) to change the region. Region 0 is region-free.

7. Press PLAY/OK (below the screen) to confirm the region selection

The player should now be unlocked and able to play discs from all regions - it worked on my PD9012/37 that was region 1

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking the DVD player is attempted at your own risk.

The navigator 6710 won't work as a phone only the navigation switches on. When you switch it on the screen does not show the menu or the contacts. Noen of the keys work except the start for navigation.


amazingly the auto zoom in out is not a software problem.. it's hardware problem nd that's is why nokia is not getting in to help as its gonna cost it alot. the problem is that the upper portion has become touch sensitive. the acceot key , hang up key,the two selection keys and the navigation keys are made touch sensitive "delibrately" or intensionly.

Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.

Pioneer AVIC-D1 Touch Screen Recalibration

If your pioneer AVIC car navigation unit does not register your touches or the wrong button is “pressed”, you need to re-calibrate your screen’s digitizer.

1-Hold the Eject button down until the face of the unit drops all the way
2-Using a pen hold down the reset button (just above the joystick) and the navigation disc eject simultaneously.
3-Release the reset button.
4-Release the dvd eject button next. The display will read “press reset”
5-Push the joystick up two times.
6-Push the joystick down twice.
7-Press the joystick in.
8-The service menu will appear after a short pause. You can navigate the service menu using the joystick.
9-Chose the first menu option and press in on the joystick.
10-Trace the screen with a stylus.
11-"P.ADJ" is the back button
12-Chose the second menu item in order to calibrate the touch screen. Use a stylus again and tap the "+" sign on the screen. (You may have to touch slightly off center if the digitizer is damaged. In which case things will still be off but it will be much better.)
