SOURCE: tomtom

I have worked on several tomtom 710's and 910's with this problem. About 95% of the time the negative pin losses connection and needs to be re-soldered. If you have a OHM meter turn it on to check continuity. turn your unit upside down with the screen facing away from you. The docking port should be facing toward you. Next take the red (+) probe and touch the solder joint on the far left (right below the gold contact pin) then take the negative (-) probe and touch it to the go;d contact pin. If you don't get continuity you have discovered your problem. To repair you will need a number 6 torx driver and remove the 4 torx screws under the ends of the rubber strip (you don't have to remove the strip just lift the ends up). Remove the face plate. There is an indention on the case on the bottom so you can get a finger nail under it. Pry up carefully till you get it off. Next the back housing should come off ( you have already removed the 4 screws). After removing the back housing you will see 2 torx screws on the top remove them (this is the sat antenna). You don't have to remove this piece. Next remove the 4 screws holding down the motherboard remove them. Next gently pry the motherboard up but be careful, you have to remove the speaker and battery cables before removing it completely. Also be careful of the wire spring on one side, this is your phone antenna.
After removing the motherboard check again for continuity. The gold pin on the far left (with the contact pins closest to you) is the negative side. The contact pin to the far right is the positive pin. Normally all you have to do now is use a small soldering iron and and re-solder the soldering joint just below the contact pin.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: tomtom will not connect to computer

This is not a solution, it is a new problem
my tomtom was working fine until I connected it to my computer using the latest TomTom Home. It now flashes a white cross and TomTom Home says "No device connected". My TomTom is useless now and does not work anymore.

SOURCE: my tomtom charges the green light comes on I press

I have managed to fix my TomTom one.

The problem was two fold. First the diode D8 was blown and also the power supply chip was blown.

It is a tricky job, using surface mounted components so should not be attempted by a novice but I managed it.

I have a full set of photos etc if anyone cares to try it. I figured - NOTHING to loose!! so what the heck and just went for it. Taking it apart was fun! The surface mounted IC was easy to obtain and the total cost was about £10 plus 4 hours panic labour. If anyone wants the info just let me know and I will send the photos - but no promises - it worked for me.
I figured out this ongoing problem. I purchased my TomTom One second edition 1/20/07 for $395. I was 30 days past my warranty and had the problem of unit not turning on. Green light came on when charged.

I opened my unit up and found the sw2 micro switch broken. If you press too hard on the on/off button, this will eventually happen.

I couldn't find a replacement switch so I wired my own switch and it works now.

How do use tomtom

TomTom's GPS devices provide consumers with portable navigation solutions. Download maps, view turn by turn updates and listen to spoken directions on trips across town or across the country. TomTom has a variety of GPS products, but basic use and inputting destination information are almost identical across the board. If you're just taking your TomTom out of the box, you'll need to perform a few extra steps to complete set up. I am listing the 7 steps to use TomTom below;

1. Ensure your TomTom unit is fully charged. A full charge requires approximately two hours. Power the unit by pressing and holding the "On/Off" button for approximately two seconds. Make sure you are in an unobstructed area. Wait for the Tom Tom to power up and acquire a satellite signal.

2. Answer the on-screen questions to set up your device. The questions only appear if this is the first time you've used your Tom Tom. Otherwise, the driving view and your current location will be displayed.

3. Tap the center of the screen to open the main menu. Tap "Navigate To" and then tap "Address."

4. Choose the option that describes how you wish to enter the address you are navigating to. You may tap "City Center," "Street and House Number," "Zip Code" or "Cross Street or Intersection." To enter an exact address, choose the "Street and House Number" option.

5. Type in the requested information by tapping the letters or numbers on the screen. As you type, matching town and street names will appear in a list format. Choose the correct option from the list when it is displayed by tapping it. If prompted, enter the house number by tapping the corresponding numbers on the screen. When you are finished, tap "Done".

6. Select "Yes" or "No" when asked if you need to arrive at a particular time. If "Yes" is chosen, follow the instructions to enter in the desired arrival time.
Finally, follow the on screen and spoken directions to reach your destination.

    Hi, just bought a one xl, have tried to set up my home address and I pressed a wrong button, Italy instead of u.k., got up 'change home location' on the screen and selected street and house number, tapped...

    age has nothing to do with new technology,

    if the language in One XL is Italian then use google translate

    TomTom One XL manual page 33
    Tap Change preferences in the Main Menu.

    (When you first start using your TomTom ONE XL, not all the buttons will be shown in the menu. Many buttons and some more advanced features are hidden because you will not need these features very often.To see all of the buttons and features, tap "Show ALL menu options" button in the Preference menu.)


    TomTom One XL manual page 36
    Tap "Change language" button to change the language
    You can choose from a wide range of languages. When you change the language, you are also given the opportunity to change the voice.

    if your one is not One XL any TomTom manual can find here

    Hope this help

    When i type in destination, I get map view instead of arrow pointing direction and showing which way to turn ect.I've tried everything to get back to driving directions , follow the arrow in the direction...

    depends on which TomTom Go you have (maps preloaded only go700 and go910 no memory card slot)

    This is for Go910

    Tap Change preferences in the Main Menu.

Many buttons and some more advanced features are hidden because you will not need these features very often.To see all of the buttons and features, tap "Show ALL menu options" button in the Preference menu.)

    then Tap "Turn off map display" button to turn off the map. Instead of seeing your position on a map in the Driving View, you will only see information about the next instruction.

    Need to reset the touch screen

    dust can enter the tomtom membrane that sits just above the screen. if there are dust particles in there trapped then this can effect the operation of the touch screen. It normally happens only around the edge of the screen so it is possible to clean it out after removing the screen bezel.
