My new Tom Tom will not start past the first screen that shows the name Tom Tom.....how do I get it to operate properly. If I depress the start button for about 14 seconds it goes to a green screen or...


It is likely that your battery is low or nearly-dead, particularly if you haven't used your GPS for a while and it has not been plugged in (to be kept charged). That's why it doesn't start (even if it is plugged in when you're trying to start it up again now). Don't try to repeat the startup (too often) as it will mess up your sw / data (when your battery is low or half dead) You'll want to plug it in (e.g. using your USB or wall adapter) for up to 24 hours or so, to charge the battery. Then start it up and keep it plugged in until your battery is fully charged.

Can the Tomtom recharge wheh the car is not in use - eg in the garage


No, then tom tom cannot recharge when the car is not on. You need to turn on the car before your tom tom can charge. The battery gets to charge the tom tom when in use. Once the car is turned off the gps will not charge. You can try out a practical by turning off your car and plugging the gps to see if it will work. Or the cigarette lighter, does it work when the car is turned off. Since the cigarette lighter does not turn on when the car is off, then it means it gps cannot charge once the car is turned off.
Hope this information helped you!

This can be a major repair if the plug has been torn from tyhe board. The cost of repair is almost as much as a new purchase.

My 300 Tom-Tom quit on me. No screen or anything. Help!!


Plug it into your computer using a USB cable and press the reset button. Once it resets, keep it plugged in and your computer turned on, until the battery is fully charged. Every so often, charge it. If the battery goes totally dead, it will create problems.

Dead


Does the cigarette lighter work in the car when you press it in? Does it get hot? If not has the fuse blown for the cigarette lighter?

If that is supplying power you may have a fault in the cigarette lighter to Tom Tom lead. Carefully check the fuse (one of the six bumps) in the plug and make sure it is still intact (use a meter).

If the fuse is OK then the lead itself may be faulty and probably needs to be replaced.

Tom tom not charging up!


Battery's probably dead. If you're within warranty you can have it replaced by contacting TomTom. Otherwise, you can still use the device, you'll just have to have it always connected to the charger.

To much voltage put into tom tom.smell of burning


when you plug in the normal cigarette liter into the socket does it pop up hot? if so I suggest trying to replace the power cord to the tom tom. your car only puts out 13.8 volts. any more than that the fuses would blow.
