Tomtom not turning on


It sounds like the dreaded green light of death. The TomTom car chargers for this model and older had a inherit problem with sending more than the requaired amount of power to the TomTom 3rd edition and older models. When the extra power is supplied a diode in the TomTom burns out, but the green power light will come on.

Won't switch on


Connect it to the computer, then try to switch it on by pressing the button for 1-2 seconds. If it switches on, connect to tomtom home, update, and then switch off. Disconnect, then switch on again. You may have to reset it again by pressing the button for 10-15 seconds. I onl had this problem once, after my first download from tomtom home - I think I crammed too much info into its memory!

Tomtom 510 will not activate. tried it with connection to electrical outlet and without being plugged into the outlet. It quit working after it was plugged into an automobile cigarette lighter plug, then...


After posting my problem, I did some more browsing and came across this on the amazon webiste:

31 of 32 people found the following review helpful: stars-4-0._v45457020_.gif Cure for not able turn on the Go 510, 16 Jun 2007 By Sirius (Essex) - See all my reviewsI like the tomtom so far the only niggle was it would not turn on once.
No troubleshooting on instructions, found cure on internet,reset button
underside. With the tomtom turned over and the card slot on top right hand
side there is a small rubber foot at the half moon shaped enterance, up at about the 10 o'clock position from the foot,but before the green circuit
board there is a small half round cut out with a hole under you need to press in this hole for a few seconds with a paper clip to reset. I wonder how many people have sent their tomtoms back that would not turn on.

Tried it & worked a treat!!! Newcastle here we come again ...

Doesn' t turn on


1. Connect the TomTom to the USB for power (green light should be on).
2. Hit the reset button on the bottom of the device - you should feel it depress slightly.
3. Press firmly and hold the power button and count to 10.
5. Try this a couple of times if it doesn't work the first time.

Even if your battery is ****, the power connection has a pass-through, so you can still use the device as long as its connected to the charger.

Tomtom one repair


If the green light does not even come on when you plug in the charger you must have an issue with the logic board. Did the GPS get wet or did it drop, was there anything else the preceded the moment it stopped working? There is a company that sells GPS logic boards for TomToms : GPS Repair
