The unit has a slide switch on the side. If you are asking how to mount the unit, it came with a bracket that snaps on (there are indentations in top and bottom where it hooks in). Then you pop the ball mount into the receptacle on the back. The circle disc to which you refer is for PERMANENT dash mounting. It has double sided tape that sticks to the dash. You can then use the suction mount on the disc instead of the windshield. I hope this helps.

My tomtom is connecting fine to the computer, but once I get the pop up window saying my device is safe to properly disconnect and I disconnect it and try to turn it on without it being hooked up to the...


If you have a big red circle with a white X in it, it usually means that your TomTom One 'disk' is corrupted: first try a 'hard reset' , while the power is on, stick a small (tooth) stick through the hole under your unit base and opposite to were the USB connector go, for a few seconds, remove the pressur on the stick will cause a complete system reboot if possible.

Next, since you can connect to the computer, use Windows Explorer -> Properties -> Tools > Error-checking to scan and repair any problem with your Tomtom drive & check if you still have a problem.

If there is an error or you cannot reboot, hopefully you have a backup made either by copying the whole unit disk content or more traditionally via TomTom Home, I would suggest a complete restore your device content follow by a TomTom Home device update.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Unit GO 530 doesn't work after updating it.


Same thing happened to me. Connect it back to your computer again and download the upgrades again. That should square it away

I cant unlock my garmin nuvi 200.


if you bought a locked satnav without a code you are either very stupid or handling stolen goods. And dont give the **** that you didnt realise or didnt check. No-one in their right minds buys a satnav without seeing it working.
If you still claim its legit then send it off to Garmin and they offer an unlocking service

Pin number dont know it how to deactivated it


Correct. When setting the PIN the user is warned to either remember it or the secret location where it was set - as the GPS will unlock there. This renders a stolen GPS useless.

Magellan roadmate sd card error


I had a similar error and I fixed it. That is, as far as I know...

Here's my theory: The SD card is acting like it has an error on it. This often happens when it is removed improperly.

HERE'S HOW TO FIX IT:

  1. Remove your SD card from your GPS
  2. Insert your SD card into an SD card reader or connect it to your PC
  3. Wait for windows to go through it's process of discovering your the "removable storage device" your just connected (see step 2)
  4. (This step may be different depending on what version of Windows you are using or depending on how you have your OS laid out). Look at the lower right hand corner of your desktop. There should me a small icon there with a green circle and a check mark. It looks like this...877f33f.jpg
  5. Click that with the right mouse button.
  6. It will say "Safely Remove Hardware" - Left click that message.
  7. A window will pop up allowing you to select your SD card and "Safely Remove" it (it will have a letter name like "drive F" for example).
  8. Wait for the windows to tell you it is ok to remove your hardware - then remove your SD card form the PC
  9. Make sure your GPS is turned off.
  10. Insert the SD card into your GPS.
  11. Turn on your GPS
  12. That's all! I hope I was able to help.
IF THIS HELPED, please leave a comment indicating that it did! If it did not help, please let me know that as well.
