    I'm away on vacation and my problem TomTom Go 700 is at home so I am unable at this time to try the fix but I think it just may work as it seems very thought out. Thank you. I plan on referring my friends and family to Fix Ya.

I have the xl live and after an update which failed, my tom tom has now failed. I have tried a reset but i can only get the legal notice page the i agree touch screen fails to move on. can you help.


Hello,

The TomTom is a portable GPS for automobiles that assists the driver with navigational maps and driving instructions. If the TomTom freezes up or glitches, you can reset the system back to the factory settings. Users that have the 22 Range TomTom models such as the TomTom ONE and TomTom XL can hold down the power button to reset their system. However, the TomTom GO has a manual reset button on the device.

Instructions And What You Need To Solve The Problem.

  • Paperclip
  1. Remove the TomTom GO from its cradle.
  2. Turn the unit upside down.
  3. Look for a small hole in the bottom of the unit. It will be located just behind the release button. The reset button is recessed inside this hole.
  4. Straighten out one end of the paperclip.
  5. Press the recessed button by inserting the straightened end of the paperclip into the reset hole.
  6. Hold the button down for ten seconds, then pull the paperclip out of the hole. Your TomTom GO should now be reset back to the factory settings.

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

When turning on the no maps appears on screen


If you have an SD card installed then
Remove the SD card from the tomtom
The card may need to be formatted properly first or re-formatted.
Formatting is better done in a card reader.
There are differing views but this method has always worked for me.
Insert the card in the reader,. Using my computer or windows explorer right click on it and select format
select FAT32 as the files system
Now connect the tomtom to the pc but don't let tomtom home run.
Exit TomTom Home if need be.
You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive and may even show its own special icon.
In windows explorer select tools then folder options.
Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.
then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card.
DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !
Once all the files are on your new card switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card and re-boot the TomTom
It should now work.
If not try the hard re-set in which you would use a paperclip to reset the tomtom. there should be a tiny hole on the underside of the unti.
push the paperclip in there (not too hard) while the unit is switched on
This would cause a reset to factory defaults (you may have to set home location etc)
You may also have to switch off and re-boot again for it to take effect.

Tomtom ONE XL doesnt go past start up screen


You may want to try operating your TomTom from TomTom Home. This has seemed to work for a lot of people who do not have backups, as you are connected to their site. Apparently, a file or two are updated, and you are back in business. Here's an example:

"Though not using a 720 my 500 wouldn't startup after upgrade to 7.16. Always stuck on the first splash screen.

After conncting to Home I chose Operate my Go and another file was downloaded. After this the device would boot up norammly when not connected to my PC.

Might be worth a try."

TomTom Go 300


boot up failure / switching off part way through the boot up is usually caused by corrupted data or files on your SD card.
When booting up with faulty data the TomTom has 3 options
  1. Continue to boot up and run the errored software
  2. Boot up until a file cannot be correctly loaded then shut down
  3. Try to boot up but if not possible show a RED X on the screen
The other cause for shutting down is a partly charged battery but since you are running off a charger lead this cannot be the case .
So , with the above in mind , its most likely that you have corrupted SD card . The only ways to recover from this is to format and re-install from a backup of the card. OR , it might be possible to overwrite some files or folders from a similar "friends" card in the hope that you overwrite the correct / corrupted file. This is a longshot in the dark but is a possible cure.

Good luck
