Question about Tomtom GO 300 GPS Receiver
SOURCE: my tomtom does not turn on
Contact TomTom. They were helpful to me.
Suggest u monitor battery and get it charged up. Then reset. See if you can reproduce the problem.
They sent me an email with instructions on how to format the disk or card, then reinstall the software. Then they authorized me a new map download (don't format the disk until they assure you that you can have a new map). Perhaps it's also best to use TomTom Home software on your computer to backup the files on the TomTom incase something goes wrong.

I found this.
Question: Device shows a flashing cross when turned on.
If your device only shows a cross after you turn it on, the TomTom application is not installed or cannot be found.
To solve this, follow the steps below.
Manually remove the TomTom application:
Reset your device.
Connect your device to your computer.
Turn on your device by pressing the power button for 5 seconds.
Do one of the following:
Windows: Click Start > My Computer and then double-click the Removable Disk for your TomTom device.
Macintosh: Double-click the desktop icon for your TomTom device.
Delete all files except the following:
Do not delete any of the folders!
Do not delete the files antitheftw.bmp, lowbatteryw.bmp and splashw.bmp (if present)!
Reinstall the TomTom application:
Start TomTom HOME
Select an option:
I previously updated my device on this computer
I never updated my device on this computer
Click Done and then click Device > Disconnect Device.
Your device should now start up again. If it hasn't started up after 10 seconds, press the On/off button.

This happens because files on your card are corrupted after an unsuccessful download.
If you have a card backup at hand, put the card into a computer, format it , and restore backup.
After that the TOMTOM will restart working normally.
If you did not make a copy or backup of the original card, or you cannot reach the computer hosting the last backup.Then follow the procedure below to restore your data :
1. Uninstall the application
2. Reinstall the application
We highly recommend backing up your device before continuing.
This will preserve any maps and voices you may have purchased.
1. Connect your device to your computer.
2. Go to Computer (Vista), My Computer (XP) or your Desktop (Mac).
3. Double-click the TomTom disk drive to open your TomTom.
4. Make sure that hidden folders and files are shown. To do this:
6. Delete all files EXCEPT these map folder(s) and the folder titled ASR, if it exists (the ASR folder will not appear on every device).
7. Properly disconnect the TomTom from the computer and exit TomTom HOME, if it is open.
Proceed to reinstall the application (below):
