I red cross usually indicates an SD card problem.
With most tomtom's usually removeing the SD card and powering up will resolve the issue.

If not then a HARD reset without the SD card may be called for.

If it does prove to be an SD card error then formatting in a proper card reader using FAT32 as the file system and then copying the files back over from the tomtom usually does the trick.

Or format and restore from a back up to the card. can work too.

It may also mean that a files might have been deleted or become corrupted.


Ppush the card into the gps and let go
it should come out a little to allow you to remove it.
(do that with the power off !)

power up the gps again and if it works the card is a minor fault that can usualyy be fixed by tou prettyy easily.

If it still does not come on properly then look for a tiny hole near the SD slot

get a paper clip and and with the gps switched on pust it into that hole keeping the paper clip straight (dont push too hard)

Hold it for about 3 seconds and release.
your gps should reset itself.

If it stays off try to power it up.

It should now power up but you may have to tell it all your personal settings again.


The tomtoms don't die too often compared to other makes

and even when they lock up they can usually be brought back to life

Tip

Red X flashing when starting up TomTom


This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card
  • Connect the device to your computer.
  • Open the TomTom Home application.
  • Click on 'Update My Device'.
This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

Hi , My tom tom has been great, all of a sudden it registers zero sats but when i go into sats configure it says that it is reading them by the individual signal levels but back on the map screen it still...


Try resetting your TomTom.
To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to
push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot on the
bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on.
I have attached the link to the manual which shows a picture on how to do it.
Thanks for using FixYa

I have seen this before on my TomTom as well.
Do you have a backup save? The was I fixed this was to plug a 1Gig SD card into a card reader (not the TomTom) and copy the backup file directly to the card and then plug in into the TomTom while turned off and then powered it on.

if you do have a backup, you should be able to find it under you My Documents folder under the TomTom folder.
