Reset it. If that doesn't work, you need to have it repaired or replaced. If you have had it longer then 5 years, it is past its best by date. Having said that, you say it works fine to start with, so it can't be much wrong. If the sound comes via Bluetooth, delete the entry, reboot all devices and re-pair them.

Possibly from leaving the gps charging too long the battery may not be able to hold a charge. Best suggestion would be to always use with car charger when you travel with it.

The difference in capacity between 1320mAh and 1300mAh is minor (we are talking about a 1,6% difference, this is below production variance anyway). If the voltage and battery type is the same and the new battery fits inside your device, there will be no problem.

Note, the 1300mAh is the capacity of the battery (how much energy it can store). The main information this value gives is how long a device can work without the battery needing a recharge. You need to be concerned only about the output voltage of the battery (measured in Volts, abbreviated V, and the chemistry type of battery like NiMH, LiIon, LiPo, NiCd). The voltage should match the original so that your GPS device works properly without getting fried or underpowered; the chemistry type must match so the battery and the charging electronics do not get damaged when the external charger is connected.

Normally the voice commands are only available in the "Computer generated voice" mode. If you select any other voice, the feature is disabled. Hope this helps

Built-in FM Transmitter to transmit sound over own car stereo and lets not forget Best hands-free calling> Best guess is that your computer is finding and trying to connect to the blue tooth connection since Toshiba has blue tooth capabilities, also you could be losing the wifi signal just because the FM transmitter is overpowering the the wifi signal. If i had to guess though i would go for the blue tooth connection as being the problem. Hope this helps

GPS devices often won't start at all if the battery is too low and need a full charge before you can see anything happen. Try it again once making sure you have leads that can charge it.

It sounds like your mini usb connector is damaged. If you're handy you can buy a replacement and solder it in. You will need a very fine tip soldering iron and a magnifying glass. The repair can be quite challenging as the components are surface mounted.
Otherwise I can fix it for you for a small fee.
I've repaired about 20 tomtom units with similar problems. I charge around £35 for this including return postage
