MIne had the same problem. Seems that there is a pin inside the machine that fits on the inside of the connector that goes in bottom of machine. That piun was broken off inside the charging end and only made intermittant contact causing machine to go flat.
Contacted TomTom and since it is over 2 years old and I cannot find my original receipt they will not fix it. They agreed when I suggested that should I throw it in the trash?
What about that for customer service No More TOmTOm products for me.
Also the power switch was so diffcult to turn on or off, often needed a coin to get it to switch.
Also my street not on their maps and its been here for 15 years!

If you can find a Torx security screwdriver of the right size you can get to the inside. Since they will not even repair mine for a charge I have no other choice.

Your battery is faulty, probably caused by the non tomtom charger.
Ring tomtom on 08451610009 as the unit is 6 months old and they will repair it free of charge. DON'T tell them about the other charger.
White lined screen is a battery problem

TomTom Rider unit wont charge. Tried mains charger, USB connector and bike charger. Swapped out the battery and the unit boots up but that is just the charge in the new battery. Any help appreciated.


Power board is faulty, repair or replace. Workshop repair required. Oh, stop plugging a charger into the USB socket. It doesn'tlike it, thats for data transfer only. The round pin socket is the charger port

I have a question concerning the tomtom 910. When plugged into the car, the tomtom goes off and on and the battery is constantly low. However,when I charge it at home, it stays on for about 4 hours. What...


Connect your TomTom to the car charger and turn it on. Tap the lower right hand cornor where the sat. signal graph is. On the screen that comes up check to see if it is chargeing while connected to the car charger. It should say charging in the upper right hand cornor where it shows the battery status. If it isn't charging then you have either a bad pin on your windsheild mount or your charger is not working. If the charger is not working it may be as simple as replacing the fuse in the charger.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +


1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.

TomTom 910 charger question


Yes, you can.
I presume the charger has an USB connector.
5v and 2A are the correct figures for a Go910.
