My tom tom has gone blank without warning.

Try these 3 things - wait at least 20 seconds before trying the next step:
* Reset the device, you may need to use a paper clip to do this, then try the power switch.
* Remove the SD card and re-insert it, then try the power switch
* Hold down the power button for about 5 seconds.

Tomtom Rider GPS won't turn on

My Rider 1 is showing the same sympton. Was working fine now I can't get past the initial "Tomtom" screen.

Does it power up when connected to the mains charger?- No, need to prod reset and then turn on manually.
Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? - No, only sign of life if by manually turning on but only get as far as the Tomtom screen, not the main menu.

Any ideas welcome

Remove silver face plate by prying with your fingernail. Remove 4 screws, open and unplug the connector that the battery and speaker wires connect to. Wait 30 seconds and replug. Problem solved. Put back together and turn on. If this dont work, you have bigger problems.

Make sure that the bike's electrical connection to the GPS unit is actualy not having power once you turn the key off in the bike. This GPS turns on with external power. It is inherent in to its design.

In the case were you cannot have the bike's power source to the GPS turn off with the key, see if you can wire a small in-line switch in series with the GPS unit so that you have an external power switch. This should be easy to do.

The models I have used from Garmin have their own power switch. You should be able to use its power switch to turn it off.

Power Switch

This is a common problem with the Nuvi series. The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.

The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down the button, the solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually break off the main PC board. This is a design flaw and could have been easily prevented by wedging a small piece of plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support.

Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.

I have repaired many of these before and the repairs I make prevent this from happening again.

If you would like for me to reasonably repair your GPS, please email me at KS3R at sharc dot net.

"unit turns on and off with the ignition switch, sometimes."

There is something wrong with your power cord or the connection to the cigarette lighter. Your unit should turn on and off with the ignition switch. If the unit is on and doesn't turn off with the ignition switch then your unit is running on battery. If your unit doesn't turn on with the ignition switch then the unit is not getting power from the cigarette lighter.

Stuck power on button.

There are three ways to turn on your Nuvi
1. Press the Power On Switch
2.Connect it to a USB port on a Computer via the USB cable 3.Plug it into the Accessory Outlet or Cigarette Lighter receptacle in your vehicle
There is a good possibility that the Power On Switch has been depressed so far that it might in fact cause the unit to short out when powered up via either option 2 or 3 in which case it could cause Major Damage to your computer as well as your Nuvi In Option #3 you may just blow a fuse in your vehicle but toast the Nuvi. The Safe Route and the one which I would highly recommend is Return it to Garmin for Repair.
