If your device freezes at the start-up screen after you turn it on or your device is looping, the TomTom application may not be installed properly.

See some examples of start-up screens here. The image may vary on previous TomTom devices or if you have replaced the image.

It is freezing because you are not getting a good satelite signal. Rarely it is the software. It happens to me all the time. It will maintain the last good location and stick that image on the screen.

My tomtom receiver is frozen on the start screen.


Connect your TomTom to the USB cable then turn on your TomTom in that order. Go to "My Computer" and open the drive that is your TomTom. Copy and paste your map folder to the desktop. Delete everything on your TomTom (don't format). After deleting everything on your TomTom. Open TomTom Home. TomTom Home will tell you, you need an application for your TomTom. Let TomTom Home load the application. You will probably have to do this at least 2 times to get the latest application for your device. After TomTom Home has loaded the latest application for your device closer TomTom Home and copy and paste your map back onto your TomTom. You should be ready to go after doing this. Make sure you do not skip a step when doing this.

TomTom frozen


My TomTom One is acting up. All of a suddent, it has a hard time finding a valid GPS signal. Then, it sometimes becomes frozen at the first screen when you turn it on. When I try to connect to the computer, the menu page comes up on the computer screen, but the unit does not respond to anything. This unit has operated smoothly until now and I have done nothing to change it. Any ideas?
