This is a problem with early TomTom CLA (cigarette lighter adapter).

Call TomTom if the unit is still under warranty. Next time Buy a Garmin.

It debends on how badly it blew up. Probably more than the price of a new one, contact a repair man and get a estimate.

Tom tom will not switch on when i try to charge it the led light does not come on i have hardly used my tom tom


What is your charging method? In car or house hold plug? Suggest that charger is not working (Green) if light on Tom Tom (at bottom near charger lead) is not lighting. Check your charger and see if you have an indicator light on it showing it is on. If yes, plug in Tom, then press and hold the "on" button for 15 seconds constinuously. Tom Tom should reboot.

Been given a tom tom, with no charger apart from cigarette lighter adapter, ONCE CONNECTED WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT A RESPONSETO ENABLE ME TO INSTALL INFO. THANKS JENNY


Tom Tom GPS only brings a car charger and a USB to Mini USB cable that allows you to sync with your computer. For more info on your specific unit visit the Tom Tom site. You can also download the needed interface software for your unit at their web site. The USB cable isn't very expensive if you need to replace it. And once you have it, you will be able to update maps or download and install maps for other countries and even some fun voices if your unit supports it.
Download the software you need first and then connect your TOM TOM. Follow the prompts. Install any updates and you should be okay.

For some reason, I didn't get a home charger for my Tomtom One 130 when I got it for Christmas. Will my Motorolla phone charger work? Also, I cannot understand the diagram for installing it to the...


The plastic suction cup attaches to your windscreen. You can see more of the device in www.tomtom.com

Your Motorola phone charger will not work and it may even damage your GPS! In the package you have a cigarrette lighter adapter for your car - the home charger (AC-charger) you have to purchase separately.

My tomtom will not turn on. I have had it plugged into the car charger for several hours. Help?


try a reset first, i will assume you cant do this, get a clip or pin switch off the unit and remove the sd card, then push the tool into the small reset hole underneath and hold for 15 seconds, then turn your unit back on and replace the sd card, it should then work if not it could be the battery has worn out as they are attached to the charger all the time when driving, hope this helps

Nuvi charger voltages for 360 vs. 2xx/7xx


They are compatible. There is no difference. They all take +12VDC and convert to +5VDC. The pin out of the mini-USB is the same. This is a standard port on all Garmin units.

Sounds like your battery not charged fully. Check your charger unit , possibly fuse in plug faulty or cigarette lighter fuse in car blown.

I've had my Tom Tom for about two years though haven't used it all that much. When I plug it into my cigarette lighter, it starts to 'power up' but then before long it just quits on me. Nothing after that....


make sure the light is on, on the charger unit. if not then check the lighter plug. ifplug is good then you will need to change the charger

Tomtom only charges on fast charger base. Why?


if it is not charging in the car then the socket in the car is dead, blown fuse or defective socket..

Screen is blank, shorted out?


If you had the prongs backwards, you probably blew the input diode. I don't know of anywhere other than Tom Tom for service on these.

Charger


I had the same exact problem! It should plug in to the back of the unit, but it wouldnt charge there either.

What i had to do was goto Radio Shack and buy a Universal Charger for my cigarette lighter that cost $14.00. It has multiple plugs and 'pins'. Find the right one, and set the volt/amp switch to 4 or 6 amps, whatever it says on the bottom of your TOM TOM. The person at Radio Shack helped me, they should be able to help you too!

Thanks,
Mark
