Hi, I hope you've made a back up on your computer!!
If copy and paste have worked below is the restore instructions off the tomtom site

  1. Reset your device.

  2. Connect your device to your computer.

  3. Turn on your device by pressing the power button for 5 seconds.
    TomTom HOME starts.

  4. In TomTom HOME, click Add Maps, Traffic, Voices etc. and then click Items on my computer.
    Then expand Applications by clicking the plus symbol TomTom 1 XL - homeplus.jpg and click Add.

    Yet again same problem occurred!!!! Freezing on start up screen or resetting itself when using it.
    Problem seems to be fixed by buying a new memory card, not a tomtom one though, I got a sandisk ultra 2 and its been working fine ever since

My tomtom one xl turns on by itself and runs the battery down .so when i need it it wont work unless i charge the battery ..pita!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The spontaneous poweron is a bug in app 8.01. Models with that app tuen themselves on exactly 1 week after they've been turned off. A workaround is to hold the power button forever until you see a black sceen with debug writing on it. Then shut it off and it should stay off.

HOW DO I TURN UP THE VOLUME


Users will continually need to quickly change the volume on a TOMTOM units, depending on the loudness of traffic noise, the radio or conversations. Although there are no external volume controls, the volume on the ONE can be easily accessed on screen by touching the bottom left corner of the map display. Once the volume controller appears you just slide your finger to increase or decrease volume. We found the audio levels a little softer on this unit and had to set the volume to around 60% or 70% in order to clearly hear it.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using Fixya

We want to reset the clock from am to pm or start beginning questions all over again.


1. Turn on the TomTom unit. 2. Tap the screen to bring up the menu. 3. Tap the "Change Preferences" icon 4. Keep hitting the arrow to go to the next page. Clock setting is on page 6 of the preferences dialog. 5. If the Set Clock option is greyed out, you will need to perform a system reset and then perform these steps over again.
To reset the system, start with the power off. Then, hold down the power button for about 15 seconds, until you see the TomTom logo appear on the display. When the logo appears, release the power button. After this reset, you should be able to turn the unit back on and proceed with your setup from scratch.

Last week I updated my TomTom One with the latest maps, etc. Since then whenever I use my TomTom it keeps displaying a "Shutting down in 10 seconds" screen, with follow up screens, and then it shuts down....


Make sure you have "never turn off screen" checked, To do this tap "change prferences" tap the forward arrow until you see "battery saving preferences". Tap "battery saving preferences" then tap "never turn screen off". Tap "done" and make sure that "switch off when external power is lost" is not checked. Tap "done". If you do not see this option go back into "change preferences" tap the forward arrow until you see "show menu options" it should read "show fewer munu options"

Broke screen while trying to fix to windscreen


Are you talking about the easyport mount on the XL 330S model? If so it applies fairly easily in a secure snap. When I tested out the new mount, it was fairly easy to snap on without any added pressure. TomTom has great customer service and I'm sure they'll help out to the best of their ability and if it was in fact defective, you're bound to get a replacement. TomTom doesn't want any unhappy consumers. It's a shame it broke, because it is actually a great device.
