Question about Tomtom XXL 540S GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Good morning, I was given a tomtom xxl 540 TM for Christmas and when I press the power button the tomtom logo appears but the device just seems to freeze. When I try to turn the power off, the only way I can is by holding the poower button down until the screen turns light green and then it shuts down. Any suggestions as to how I can get it working? Thanks for your help, Pat

    I brought mine back to where my wife had bought it and was told that it was a defective model. So I now have to wait util their next shipment arrives in the hopes that when I exchange it, the next one will work well.
    Can you turn your unit off? Or do you have to hold the power button down as I had to? When I plugged the unit to my computer, it was recognized as the 540 S, so I could not even register for the lifetime maps!!! This is my first tomtom, might it be my last?

I have a tomtom xxl 540s and it just loads tomtom logo on screen and freezes

First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.

I am unable to get the spoken street names function to operate on my tomtom xxl. The function is listed on box.

The solution was a hidden menu of options, there was no info provided on how to find it. When selecting the computor voice {on the device} keep pressing the selected voice and the menu of options will appear. Good Luck.
