When I try to turn on my Tom Tom it comes on briefly then turns off, when I connect it to my computer it comes up with an error which says something about antitheft .bmp,
Can anyone tell what is wrong and how to fix please.
Re: My Tom Tom one 3rd edition wont stay turned on
I had this same problem and I did a reset on the device and then downloaded the newest version of the device software from TomTom. This brought the unit back. I still needed to download maps because mine came up with just Guam maps.
Hope this helps.

Unplug your Tomtom device, batteries should be fully charged.
The tricky thing to Tomtom devices is the ROM put into the device. It needs to be reset once in awhile. The soft reset is like formatting a hard drive but leaving the system files alone. At the bottom of the device, there is a reset button. You'll need to use the end of a paperclip to reset the unit. After it's reset, reinstall the Tomtom application only by using the Tomtom Home application. Let it reset itself and come back to the original screen, then go to menu and set your preferences. Also if it's connected to Tomtom home and if you backed up your data to your computer, reinstall your maps. The only time your Tomtom device gets bogged down and won't finish a reinstall is when all 1 GB of memory is used up.
Hope this helps.
