Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I red cross usually indicates an SD card problem.
With most tomtom's usually removeing the SD card and powering up will resolve the issue.
If not then a HARD reset without the SD card may be called for.
If it does prove to be an SD card error then formatting in a proper card reader using FAT32 as the file system and then copying the files back over from the tomtom usually does the trick.
Or format and restore from a back up to the card. can work too.
It may also mean that a files might have been deleted or become corrupted.
Ok check and see if your gps has memory card in a slot on the gps (about an inch long and maybe 1/8" wide)
If it has then push the card into the gps and let go
it should come out a little to allow you to remove it.
(do that with the power off !)
power up the gps again and if it works the card is a minor fault that can usualyy be fixed by you pretty easily.
If it still does not come on properly then look for a tiny hole near the SD slot
Get a paper clip and and with the gps switched on pust it into that hole keeping the paper clip straight (dont push too hard)
Hold it for about 3 seconds and release.
your gps should reset itself.
If it stays off try to power it up.
It should now power up but you may have to tell it all your personal settings again.
The tomtoms don't die too often compared to other makes
and even when they lock up they can usually be brought back to life
