When the system is on I can't hear the device the voume is so low that you have to hold the system to your ear to hear it, nothin happend that should have caused this to not have the original level of sound. when it was in the car in the adapter it had a message that it was charging, please help, I've only has it since April, never dropped not kept in the car exposing to sun, only thing that was any different was I had not ued it for almost a month, at which time it was sitting on my dining room table. That's as much details as I can give you.

Re: Extremely low volume
Some versions of TomTom software have the option to automatically adjust the volume depending on vehicle speed, which is detected by GPS . Perhaps this may have something to do with your problem ! Try the settings menu to locate this option.
Below is a link to the TomTom Support downloads section. you can find Manuals + Updates + PC Drivers + Support . TomTom Support Site
Hope that this at least helps you a little to fixya problem !!

Totally serious, and not kidding.
Do other people also have trouble hearing it?
I'm wearing hearing aids now and it is amazing how much I did not hear before I got them.
Please double check the problem. If it is your ears it's best to find out sooner rather than later.
All the best.
Dynamike Gain Control varies the microphone sensitivity. When set fully clockwise, it is very sensitive - and will be able to "hear" background noises easily. This position also can cause your voice to be distorted or garbled when approaching maximum under the right conditions as well as causing "bleed over" to adjacent channels. When set to minimum, you will need to speak clearly and directly into the microphone to be heard. Most people find a setting somewhere in the middle works best.
You should adjust the level to suit those that are listening to you by asking them if it sounds OK. This prevents them from having to turn their volume down whenever you speak. In a "one-to-one" conversation it is not as noticeable. The trouble comes when 3 or more are conversing. The third person's audio may be low or normal - and the listeners set their radio's volume so that they can hear that person easily. Then you transmit with booming mic audio and everyone scrambles to turn down the volume to save their ears / speakers. This can be very frustrating for the others having to constantly adjust the radio volume whenever you speak.
I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.
If your like me and a little bit hard of hearing or you have the window down with road noise, you might never hear the gps unit. You have one or two small (less then one inch or 2.5cm) speakers in the back of these units.
Try changing the voice that you use, sometimes just that can help or you can try using an ear piece or aux cable if your unit has a speaker out line, you can maybe tie that into your stereo in the car.
Other then that i would suggest that you get into the habit of eye sweeping your gps unit every few seconds. Hope this helps.
Well mine, (760) has a external plug to be use with ears plug, the cord should be long enough and it should not interfere with drivings conditions, but it sound real good loud and clear. The other solution could be the matching on the fm radio station, it could be auto or manual, but they have to match in order to hear propperly.
Hope this will help
I like to help if i can. On your Tom Tom one there is whole at the bottom, this hole is to reset the Tom Tom in case of if it does not work properly. Put a pin (not a sharp one) into the hole and push it couple of times till you feel button is being pressed. That will reset the whole of your Tom Tom and try it then to see if it works fine. If it works good if not you need to check all your volume settings by going into the volume control settings. I hope it works for you. Good Luck.
