Question about GPS

2 Answers

Use tomtom go 700. On the screen it showed something like 'roads always change. Connect with your pc and press continue.' I connected to my computer windows 7 and it connected but no continued options were available. By mistake I pressed backup options. Back-up was not completed anyway. But after disconnecting from PC it's no more working. If I press switch on button, tomtom logo comes on, then map loading line goes from left to right, but no maps come up, Logo comes up again and continue restarting. If I press reset button power of tomtom goes off. Then, If I press switch on Logo comes up and shows the same things again and again. When it is on and if I press switch off button it doesn't go off at all. I guess the map has been errased!! I don't know how to bring it back to working again. Any suggestions? Thanks for help

You may need to reset your device by pressing the reset hole on the unit's bottom with a paper clip. Then try re-installing the applications with your CD.

I think, it's because the Back-Up option was stopped in the midway.

My tomtom go 700 will not connect to my pc


The moment you connect your TomTom device to a computer, your device should ask Do you want to connect to 'computer'. Once you tap YES, it should connect to the computer. TomTom HOME then starts.

If your device is not connecting, click one of the solutions below:

Tomtom 700 dead


After checking around around the web it seems that you are not the only one to get the green screen of death. My suggestion is to hold reset for several seconds, release reset and hold the power button button for 10 seconds. If this doesn't work the only other option is to let the unit sit for several days to let the internal battery completly drain, once drained theirs a good chance it will function normally, this allows any temporary memory to be cleared. Good Luck & hope this helps L8R

How can i reset my tomtom text to english language is in english but menu is different (tomtom XL classic traffic)


Do you want to change the language of the VOICE or the WORDS IN THE SCREEN? These two are independent from each other and need to be set up by separate.

1) To change the VOICE, you need to download an ENGLISH VOICE.
a) Start TomTom Home on your computer.
b) Plug in the TomTom dock to a USB port on your computer and plug in your TomTom GPS on the dock
c) Turn on the GPS and when asked "connect to computer" answer "yes" (you may not be asked if you want to connect; TomTom2_bing.gif Home amy detect your GPS and connect to it automatically). If your GPS is not connecting to TomTom Home, turn the GPS off, turn it upside down and press the "reset" button for 7 seconds, place the GPS back on the dock and turn it on. It should automatically connect to TomTom Home now.
d) On the TomTom Home software, click on the icon labeled "Add Traffic, Voice, cameras..."
e) Click on the icon labeled "voices"
f) Click on the icon labeled "computer voices"
g) Click on any of the voices that says "English" on the second ("language") column; download and install the voice
h) Go to the TomTom Home top menu and under "DEVICE" choose "DISCONNECT DEVICE". Wait a few seconds until the GPS communication with the computer is broken and the GPS restarts. You don't need the computer anymore for now
i) On your TomTOm GPS, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the menu.
j) Touch "CHANGE PREFERENCES"
k) Touch "VOICE PREFERENCES"
l) Touch "CHANGE VOICE"
m) Select any of the voices that are in English (such as "SUSAN, English US, Computer"). After this, you can TEST the voice. Check that you can hear the voice, otherwise, you'll need to adjust the volume. We'll do this later. Touch "SELECT" to select the voice. Press "DONE" on the next 3 screens until you're back to the GPS navigation screen
n) To change the volume, tap on the LOWER LEFT rectangle. You'll get a VOLUME SLIDE. Slide it to the RIGHT to increase the volume and to the LEFT to lower it. I keep mine around 85% volume. YOU ARE DONE SETTING UP A NEW VOICE

2) To change the LANGUAGE of the WRITTEN DIRECTIONS on the screen:
a) On your TomTom GPS screen, tap on the middle of the screen to bring the MAIN MENU on
b) Tap on the PREFERENCES icon
c) Tap on the RIGHT ARROW 7 times or until you see an icon labeled "CHANGE LANGUAGE".
d) Using the UO and DOWN arrows on the GPS screen, scroll up or down untill you see the langauges you're looking for. You'll get a screen with several languages available, including "English UK" and "English US"
d) Touch on the screen you want. The screen will automatically go back to the previous menu screen that shows the "CHANGE LANGUAGE" icon. Touch the "DONE" button.

YOU ARE ALL DONE. Now, your VOICE and all WRITTEN DIRECTIONS should be in ENGLISH.

If this didn't work, please report back so that I can provide further assitance

Make sure you download the lates Home software - probably availalble at www.tomtom.com

After you say yes to conect to the computer and the screen goes black - jut re-press the on button on the GPS while it is still connected to the computer - it will then work. I also try to open the GPS as an external drive which forces the identification of files while TomTom home is working.

Tomtom keeps rebooting by itself soon after being switched on


Here is a solution that worked in my case (constant reboots after voice select)
  1. Plug your tomtom into your PC.
  2. Run TomTom Home
  3. Select the option to run your TomTom through your PC (TT Home)
  4. You should be greated with the select language screen
  5. Then simply select language etc.
  6. When you get to the voice selection: select a voice (here TTHome should freeze) <- also strangely enough notice the cancel button doesn't on the screen (as it does when doing this on the device)
  7. Don't panic TT Home should start working again in a few seconds
  8. Disconnect your TomTom and that should have solved the problem, the normal map screen should show up upon starting up your TomTom
This solved the issue for me, hope it does for you good luck!

Tomtom 700


you might want to try:

-- plug to the electrical charger, reset for 15+ secs
-- connect to the computer, download Tomtom app and try updating the application

I had a 2006 purchased go 700 and did the above and it is working much better with latest application.

Tomtom 910 will not connect to computer


Had a similar problem with my GO 930, i.e. it would not connect to the PC. As several people have suggested, it appears to be a problem with the docking station connection. I found, by trial and error, that this works for my system (so far, every time):

Remove GO from docking station.
Switch on and allow to boot up.
Place FIRMLY in docking station
The Go should now recognise that it is linked to a PC and will ask if you wish to connect.
Proceed as normal.

As mentioned, my sytem is a 930, so this may not work for 910s.

STEP 1

Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

STEP 2

Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

STEP 3

Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

STEP 4

Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.
