Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

I just updated my Tom Tom One to a Tom Tom XL

I did the updates and when it was done, all I get on the screen is a flashing red X and it wont go off. There seems to be no reset button anywhere.

    I just updated my One XL and all I got was the hands symbol with a big red cross over it and nothing else! Now I cannot use it at all. I even bought a new chip but the same thing happened.What do I do now?

I thought I could update my TomTom one XL - but after the update I have the flashing red X and can't get rid of it. This gps does not have the memory card and you can't reset unless it's showing the main...


You may also want to try the hard reset.

Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.

Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release

You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.

This sometimes works whilst powering up as well but the moment you see any sort of screen releasy the pin !

When I turn on there is only a cross over the SD card.


This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card, Connect the device to your computer. Open the TomTom Home application. Click on 'Update My Device'. This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

Tom Tom XL stopped working after plugging in USB


You need to reset it, by holding in the reset button for 15 seconds. If there is an SD card or memory card of any kind, take this out first. sometimes you have to use something sharp like a paper clip, and push it into a small reset 'hole' in the back of the unit.
then put the memory card back in. then look online for step-by -step instructions, usually from the vendor, on how to update the software, if indeed it is at all necessary. Also, try doing the update on a PC instead, there's a chance it's not supported for Macs. I know this is controversial.. i hate Windows too.. :)

hopefully the reset button will resurrect yr tomtom though.
good luck
