There is a reset button on the bottom of the device, press and hold it for a few seconds and that should resolve the issue, I had one that did the same thing.

I push start button and hold this more than 2 seconds but the starting screen is not opening i also connect to battery charger from car and then pushing again to start but no reaction i have tomtom...

The issue could be a low power in the Tomtom and that is the reason it is not switching on. Now here the problem could be with the charging cable/wire from the car charger which might not be giving power to the GPS. Check for the fuse at the connector.
If the fuse is blown off the power wont goes into the GPS and it wont get charged and wont swich on. Look at the tip of the connector which has that spring like contact. You will be able to turn that to open it and find a fuse. Replace it with the right "amp" as the existing one. You will get one from Radioshack.
If you have already checked it and sure it is charging could be issue with Tomtom itself..Good luckKris..

I have a TOM TOM one XL GPS and it will not power

If you where having difficulty with the on/off button, it sounds like the microswitch under the plastic. Unless you can do micro soldering you can not fix this yourself. You should get a quote from tomtom.

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton

look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

My tomtom wont start and its been charged for 16 hours of a house charger

  • If the unit won't power on there is a possibility that there is a problem with the battery. call tech support of tomtom if they are accepting for trade in for a cheaper price.

We have a Tomtom XL with a cigarette lighter connector; our car does not haveone of these . Is there an alternative cable/connector?

the only alternative is to hardwire it into the car, and you must utilize the car charger to supply the correct voltage (you can not supply 12V or it will blow out your tomtom)

your tomtom will not take more then 5v @ 2 amps so you need to go through the car charger by taking it apart and attaching the power from the car to the car charger input leads.

i dont recommend you try this if you do not fully understand what im saying, because you can easily ruin your gps by hooking it up wrong.

any decent mechanic should be able to do this in less then 20 minutes.

curious as to what kind of car you have that doesn't have some sort of aux power.

have you looked under the dash or the clove box...sometimes they are put out of sight, but i dont think i have ever seen a car without one.

Green light on but will not switch on

plug in your xl via the usb cable to your computer and let it charge a few hours, then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

do not use the car or home charger to intially charge your xl. they are to maintain the battery, not a rapid charge.

let me know if you need further help.

I have had my tomtom one XL for almost one year. The car adapter (charger) cord went bad and they were backordered on the tomtom website so I purchased a radio shack universal adapter for navigational...

More than likely the generic charger sent more than 5 volts to your tt and burned a few rectifiers. You could try and tell tt the original charger did this but if they say no you are out of luck. You could put it on ebay and get something for it.

Can i plug my tomtom 1 xL in to a 24v cigerate plug

Hello callan_1,

The USB car charger which TomTom makes for the One XL GPS receiver appears to support cigarette lighters with voltage from 12 to 24 volts. If you have this charger you should be able to use it power your GPS.

Best Regards,
