Have you had the tomtom sitting too near the vents? Sounds like you have overheated it and the touch screen is coming away from the screen

Touch screen on tom tom go 930 not responding pressed reset button but no success


Could be there is something wrong inside the TomTom. But I'm afraid you need electronic skills to solve that.
You could look on ifixit dot com, to see if anyone before opened one before.
I did open one before, but I do have some drawings, I can't share over here.

When I started my tomtom the first time, it started just fine. I conneced to my computer and installed tomtom HOME and it said I needed some upgrades, so I installed them. Now, on power up, tomtom says...


Same problem here. We used a Mac instead of Windows, if that matters??? Have you tried calling Tomtom support? We can't get through and are VERY frustrated! In the last three days, we've called about 10 times and have been on hold forever... like up to an hour! They also have not responded to emails we've sent!
Any help from others out there on this would be appreciated.

How do i set 530 tomtom back to first settings


Resetting factory settings does just that it resets the operating system it does not reset or fix map problems

preferences. Obviously you can't do that now.

To do a soft reset on a ONE 530, just hold down the power button for about 15 seconds. You'll see the tomtom reboot and it will play the little drums sound.

You might need to reinstall the application on your tomtom. Refer to this link for help with that: http://www.tomtom.com/support/index.php?…
Be careful when you follow the instructions. Where it says not to delete the folders, it also should say not to open the folders and delete anything.

Not speaking street names


To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:
  • Connect your TomTom to your computer
  • When the TomTom asks do you want to connect to the computer, choose Yes
  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device.
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

Not too computer literit. Tomtom has taken me to a bridge that has been closed for a year. Tried an address and it took me to an open field(twice). Purchased it in Dec. '08 i would think it would have...


From the navigation screen (first one you normally get after power on) touch the map part of the screen; more options (right arrow); Map corrections; Correct a map error; (Un)block a street; On Map; find the bridge on the map and touch that location; Done; touch Eastbound; touch Westbound (or similar words) so they now indicate as blocked; Yes (confirm change is permanent).

The Satnav should no longer use that bridge in attempting to calculate a route.

Hope that helps.
