Question about GPS Devices

1 Answer

My tomtom 510 was working fine until this morning when I set it in it's windshield dock. The green light to show that it's charging came on but nothing else. It's been on the charger all day but won't come to life. The screen stays black on or off the dock when i hold the on/off button and my home computer doesn't recognize that it's plugged in. Any help would be appreciated

Remove the docking foot from the unit and expose the docking connectors. The reset button is at the bottom left of the body next to the connectors. It's hard to see but a paper clip will do the trick. Push just hard enough to here it click. Now it is reset.

I lost the dock that connects to the computer


Your only option is to purchase another Home dock for your TomTom GO 510. The 510, 710, and 910 all use the same dock. The cheapest place to purchase a home dock is ebay. The answer to the second part of your question is no, you cannot purchase a usb cable to connect your TomTom GO 710 to your pc. The TomTom GO series uses a proprietary dock.

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

My tomtom doesnt turns on. It shows the green led when pressing the power button, but doesnt show anything. It doesnt charge and doesnt show any led while on charge. I tried the reset for 10 sec (and 15...


Remove the micro sd card from your TomTom. Look at the bottom of your unit, where the copper contacts are (where the unit mounts to the windshield mount). You will notice a "cut-out" in the plastic case, just above the contacts. The reset button is there. Use a paper clip and depress this button for 15 seconds. Now press the power button, and it should turn on. Now replace the sd card.

TOMTOM GO 710


Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.

Will not take a charge


I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.

Will not charge


I have a similar problem and I think I solved it (orr found a way to work around it). It looks like the contacts are not connecting firmly so even though the green light may be on, the charging conneciton is not made. With the tomtom on your home dock from the front page on your tomtom, touch near the lower right of the screen on the satellite strength indicator, this should bring up a screen where it shows (among other things) your batter status at the top right. If it is charging, the word charging will be under the battery strength indicator. Just play with it until you get the word "charging" to appear under the picture of the battery.then HANDS OFF until it is charged. I doubt this will be successful with the car charger since the movement of the car will likely jar the connection loose. Good luck.

TOMTOM 510 not reading SD card


I did find out how to solve the problem. I can't remember exactly where I found the solution but I think it was on TOMTOM website. You have to connect to TOMTOM home and reinstall the application. I put the TOMTOM disc in the computer (which came with purchase) and reinstalled the program. Which I thought was weird as everything appeard to be fine with TOMTOM home). Anyway, it worked. Good luck.
