Have you tried removing the battery from the unit? Leave it for a few minutes (or longer) before reinstalling it and switching it back on. This should clear whatever you have done before and restore the unit to its "as delivered" state.

How to find the route instruction on tomtom go


Assuming you already have specified where you wish to go, and the device shows the map (of your current location) on the screen,
you can touch the screen to see the MENU screen ... then look for (on the Menu screen) a browse map option, and you'll see the route (to your destination) displayed.
If you're looking for a list of turn by turn text instructions, e.g. turn right to XXXX street, go for NN miles, etc. you may not find it displayed on your TomTom device.

I can't unlock touchscreen panel


This is an safety features that prevents unwanted oven operation by children.

To set child lock...
Touch and hold STOP/CLEAR or 0,START until LOCKED appears in the display and two beeps are heard. If the time of day was already set, the time of day will return to the display windows. After you touch another.

If the CHILD LOCK was already set and you touched another cooking pad, the word LOCKED shows in the display.
Then you can cancel the CHILD LOCK according the below procedure...
Touch and hold STOP/CLEAR or 0,START pad until LOCKED disappears in the display.

Aftes the CHILD LOCK is turned off, the time of day will return to the display window. The oven will operate normally.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

After using my TomTom for about 10 mins. the screen fades then is black. It will come back on if I tap the screen. the voice still can be heard. Can this be fixed ? If so how!


It can usually be fixed and tends to be just an option in the preferences menu

Touch a regular map display once

Now touch the Safety Preferences once

Press Done until you see the Turn Off Map Display

Select NEVER

Select DONE

Select DONE one last time to return to the map.

Hope that was of use

No response from touch screen after reset


Hook the Tomtom using the USB cable to your computer. You should see the Tomtom drive under My Computer as a drive letter.

Backup all data from the Tomtom to a folder on your computer. Now select the Tomtom drive and right click, select properties, select tools, and then Check now. Allow the computer to fix any problems with the Tomtom drive. Once this is completed. Remove the USB cable and do a reset. Now turn on your Tomtom and it should work.
