Tom tom will not switch on when i try to charge it the led light does not come on i have hardly used my tom tom


What is your charging method? In car or house hold plug? Suggest that charger is not working (Green) if light on Tom Tom (at bottom near charger lead) is not lighting. Check your charger and see if you have an indicator light on it showing it is on. If yes, plug in Tom, then press and hold the "on" button for 15 seconds constinuously. Tom Tom should reboot.

Possibly from leaving the gps charging too long the battery may not be able to hold a charge. Best suggestion would be to always use with car charger when you travel with it.

My Tom Tom XL 325 wont hold a charge while left off


Hi, leaving the unit in the cradle exposed to the sun during hot days has been known to fry the battery causing loss of battery capacity. perhaps this could be your problem. I replaced the battery in my last GPS 4 times because of this before I analysed the problem. This will most likely be outlined in your user manual too. You might also compare the output capabilities between your blackberry and tomtom charger - it is entirely possible that you are starving the unit of a decent charge if the blackberry charger is not to the same current capacity as the tomtom charger.

My Tom Tom will not charge up...there is no light showing


you could just have a defective charge cable. take tom tom with when you go to purchase new charger and ask it you can test before you buy to see if it is truely the cable. That is probaly all it is. if not you could possibly have a defective tom tom but I really just think its just the cable.

Tom tom xl does not turn on. been on charge all night and using car charger still makes no difference


try the usb cable to your. this is the recommended method to charge a tomtom when it wont power on. for reasons unexplained by tomtom they do not recommend the car or house charges.

plug it in via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours(make sure the green light is on and nice and bright) then press and hold the power button(this could take up to 20 seconds)

TOm TOM bluetooth GPS receiver can not charge in the CAR


This can be a major repair if the plug has been torn from tyhe board. The cost of repair is almost as much as a new purchase.

Tom tom will not switch on


try charging the tom tom fully and then reset while it is charging. a tom tom will not reset unless the new battery is fully charged which may take some time if you only have a car charger.


please give me a fixya! rating if this helped.
