Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver

3 Answers

TomTomGO Worked fine until connected to computer since which it has only shown picture of TomTom with red circle, white cross flashing and what appears to be a cd or something in right hand corner. Have carried out all the instructions on screen and just can't get anywhere. Tried reset button and no joy with that either. Can you help? It seems to be a common problem, looking at other peoples enquiries. Went onto computer to down load TomTom Home. We have a TomTom XL. We followed instructions and were told to disconnect the TomTom. When we did that we got an error stating we had disconnected improperly. Now we are unable to do anything on the device. There is a large X in a red circle which flashes.  ??

You have to reinstall the software in to the GPS receiver.

For that you have to check it with your dealer

730T - tomtom home hangs when checking for updates - mac


Hi - have had the same problem - if you look on the tomtom website and support they have a list and one is flashing red cross. You need to follow the steps to format the tomtom. I did this and it worked and it included the update. i havent reconnected since i have it working now. I think its a software problem with HOME. Make sure you do a back up on home and make sure you follow step by step. close HOME before you start to reformat and also in the preferences turn off the automatically connect to home when you plug into your computer or it keeps flashing up on the screen to correct. the only solution is to format it. i bought mine two days ago and the first one stuffed up so took it back for a replacement. this one worked when i turned it on but turned out the flashing cross appeared when connected to computer (i have a mac). good luck

I have a tom tom 720 after connecting it to my computer. it will not turn on a white cross in a red circle keeps flashing


Ah, another case of the Red X. No worries, it can be fixed. Most likely your connection was interrupted during an installation or removal of software features. Follow this guide to get your TomTom back up and running.

hello, The CD symbol in the corner is to show that the internal hard drive has a problem searching for or loading files. If your lucky your hard drive will be OK but somehow you have lost or corrupted data. If you made a backup copy of your hardrive sometime in the past then now might be a good time to reinstall that backup. If your'e unlucky then your hardrive is shot and the only answer will be to replace the drive. This can be done at reasonable cost by obtaining one from a defunct MP3 player or similar nano , Ipod type that has a suitable microdrive. Scrapper types of these can be found littering Ebay , but of course keep in mind the risk that these too could be damaged. Good luck , hope it all works out for you.

TomTom GO 720 - flashing red circle with white cross on screen


Hi, I am back, just got the problem solved, I called their tech support at no charge (866-486-6866, Glen) , really good service.
First turn your firewall off (if you have one). You need to go into your 720 with the TomTom Home software and erase the downloaded software (with the remove items from my device) and reset the device (little reset button under the unit keep it pressed for 5 seconds), place it back in the cradle and restart your computer and than restart the 720 , bring the TomTom Home program up, and when the TomTom Home software in your computer restarts and detects the 720 it will tell you that you need to update the application, if it doesn't than you force the update by going to the add maps option, select items on my computer, select applications and press the add button, when done, go back and to device (option in top of your screen) and select disconnect device, restart your 720 and it should be back to life with the upgraded software.
Hope this helps
Aldo
