If the battery went flat and the device switched itself off, plug into power supply and press and HOLD the power button for a few seconds until the unit powers up again. Can take 3 - 4 seconds

Tom tom dont want to turn on


Did it overheat? or is just the battery dead?
If the LED, comes on, when you connect it to the power, even when the battery is bad, the tom-tom should start working, when you press the power button. Make sure it is getting power. If that does not work, perhaps you should replace the battery.

I have a Tom Tom XL IQ Route/XL Classic which is 1 month old. When I switched it on it came up with a blue screen , picture of Tom Tom in left top corner and on the right a white cross flashing on a red...


the problem it has is the software seems to either have a problem or the mapping itself is the problem, if you bought the device brand new from a shop like halfords, then you will have the TomTom 1 year warranty, but you need your reciept for it to be authorised.
if you have done a back up of the device previously on tom tom home then you can format it and it may back up ok.

alternatively go into any Halfords or other store and speak to the specialists and they'll give you any info they can give.

What do i need to do when i hook up my tom tom for the first time and try to download the map. i dont want mine to crash like some other ones did when they tried to download. im getting a tomtom 340s in...


It is a good thing that TomTom more or less functions like a computer. Start with downloading the TomTom home from TomTom website.
Then follow the link below.
http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_us.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7954&p_created=1194036534&p_sid=lhLt3NZj&prod_lvl1=&prod_lvl2=&cat_lvl1=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTI2LDEyNiZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9bmV3IG1hcA**&p_li=&p_topview=1
Then comes the tricky part. If you are in US or Canada, you will see that the new map will not install properly. Reason? not enough space in your Tom Tom for 2 maps simultaneously.
Solution : Connect the GPS to computer via USB cable . copy every thing to a folder in your computer. Make a second copy as a precautionary method. Now go back to the GPS (drive) in the file manger. (delete the maps-USA-Canad-Mexico folder. This is an example, if you are from a different country find the map folder and delete it. ) You will see that you have freed approximately 1.6 GB space. Go back to TOMTOM home and use the latest map guarantee feature. This time around you will see that the map updates completes without failure.
Check it out by driving around through some roads you know.
Good luck

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

I have a Tom Tom 340S XL and I cannot get it to speak the street names as advertised. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks,


You solved the problem for me. I switched to a "computer voice" and the Tom Tom began calling out the street names. As many times as I read the 340S manual I never saw the requirement to use only a computer voice to speak the street names. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names


hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try
