Xxl screen is frozen


Hold down the power button for around 10 seconds the device should do a full reboot. You may need to hold it in again till you get a green screen then let go and the hold down again till you get the drum sound and it should reboot. If this fails go to web site and search for the instruction to do a complete reinstall of the device. Make a back up first especially your map. This is because you need to format the device and reinstall all the device apps, the map however cannot be downloaded for free without a subscription. Also download the free zip file or postcode file from tomtom once you finish to get the latest one. Try to download fresh files rather than install from your backup using tomtom home program but remember your map must be backed up.

Tomtom troubleshooter


Search tomtom website and download the latest postcode file (it ends .zip) and using windows copy this file to your device and it should work using post codes again. Ensure the file retains the .zip extension as it is not a zip file as one would know a zip file in normal computing to be a compressed file but .zip for the american name for a postcode being a zip code. I cannot remember if this file is copied to the main part of the tomtom or the map so try main part first.

Tomtom 630 comes off the map you are on and keeps changing menues & then puts a walking map of the nearest police station , very difficult to get back to map i was on , then goes crackers again


I have seen this twice once on a GO 630 and a GO 730, the right side of the screen is being pinched by a rubber seal under the blacke trim plate, take the GPS apart real easy to do and removed the right side of rubber seal between the plate and the screen. Have done this twice and both units work perfect.

My tomtom one will only accept first half of postcode


I know this won't be of help but just to let you know I just bought a full EU map for my trusty TT ONE and now I have the same problem. If I put the old UK map card into the device the postcode feature works as it should. If I find a solution I'll let you know.

We have a problem putting in names and addresses.


Hi,
All tomtoms are more or less the same. You tap the screen to make selections.
Switch on , let it boot up / Tap the screen / Then tap " Navigate to" / then tap "address" / Then tap either "City centre" or " Street and House Number , or Postcode " ( you select one of these by tapping screen ) . Lets say you just tapped "Postcode" . A keypad will appear on the screen for you to enter a postcode. NOW, enter the postcode ... as you enter the postcode , streetnames will appear and you can either continue to enter the postcode OR you can choose one of the street names that appear. Once you have done this , the tomtom will ask you to select a "house number" . if you don't know the number then just 'try' selecting number 1 . Once you have done this , select "Done" and the tomtom will switch for that screen to the "route calculation screen" . if you now tap the screen once more your tomtom will start giving you direction both visual and audible , to your destination . ( you must begin to move before it will start ) . ....................... Once you have completed the journey , you can now cancel the navigation by once again tapping the screen , then use the "right arrow icon" to move through the menue screens. When you see an icon with a RED CROSS through it , and underneath it says " clear route" , select that by tapping and the route / navigation will be cleared. ... Good luck , hope this helps.

Tom Tom 720 keeps jumping to main menu


Well I finally figured it out for those who might run across this problem.

It seems that when it got hot and expanded the grey bezel around the screen would touch the screen just enough to activate it. I gently pried the bezel up just a bit and it seems to have solved the problem.

Go support on official TomTom site. Entery your product then search tech support for 'postcode search'. One of the FAQ returned is exactly your problem (full postcode search in UK or Netherlands). Download file and follow instructions.
