No, a GPS device will only receive signals from the satellites in space. A GPS will never transmit any signal to the satellites because it's a one way communication.
If you have the serial number (you can find it on the device itself or on the box) you could go to the police and inform them your GPS was stolen and provide them your serial number. If you're lucky and the police finds a gang of thieves and they find lot's of stolen things, they will check the serial numbers through the police computer to check if they're not reported as stolen. Then there is a chance you will get your GPS back.

Power board is faulty, repair or replace. Workshop repair required. Oh, stop plugging a charger into the USB socket. It doesn'tlike it, thats for data transfer only. The round pin socket is the charger port

Theory 1: I wonder if it is due to condensation? Try warming it for a while with a hair dryer.
Theory 2: The power supply chip/ battery has died and in the process caused noise which made the screen switch.
Have you tried connecting it to your computer?

Have look through the tomtom forums but sadly I think your only option is to undo it and do some measurements starting with the battery. It's worth disconnecting and reconnecting the battery to see what happens.
Not a fix but best I can do with no further info.

Reset the device.

Search for"reset" on this site, or find out how in your manual. This has worked for some.

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

Hello,

the operating system software of your unit has been affected, that's why its malfunctioning. You need to install the firmware update for your device and by so doing, it will reinstall the bad or corrupt operating system files that has been affected.

Visit the below tom-tom link and download the appropriate firmware for your device.

Good luck.

Sounds like there is an increase sensitivity of your on/off switch or an issue with your casing. If tomtom doesn't repalce it under warranty. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.

The batteries are only small in these units and only require 1 maybe 2 hrs charge, so if it has been on charge all night there is a fair chance it has cooked the battery.

You can go to a bearing supplyer as they sell O Rings as well or they can sell you the round rubber and you can make your own O Ring just use some super glue to join the rubber together.

Tomtom RIDER GPS... | Answered on May 12, 2010


Super Glue. OR contact Garmin, and get a replacement.
