After inserting the sim card you need to restart your tomtom to make the X go away! At least that’s what they say on the tomtom web site!

Your only option is to purchase another Home dock for your TomTom GO 510. The 510, 710, and 910 all use the same dock. The cheapest place to purchase a home dock is ebay. The answer to the second part of your question is no, you cannot purchase a usb cable to connect your TomTom GO 710 to your pc. The TomTom GO series uses a proprietary dock.

This unit should take an SD card and there is no reason you can not use a 4GB card. There are many makers that make this size card so just shop for a good price and a reputable dealer. Good luck!

Using a OHM meter set it to check for continuity. Turn the unit upside down with the charger contact pins closest to you. Using the red (+) probe touch the solder joint directly below the gold contact pin on the far right and the black (-) probe to the gold contact pin directly above. Next do the same thing to the solder joint and gold contact pin to the far right. If you don't get continuity on either pin there is your problem. This can be fixed but it requires taking the unit apart and having some solder skills.
Hope this helps.

Try doing a reset with a straightened paper. Insert the paper clip and press down for 20 seconds6e09252.jpg

Replace the SD Card.

Unfortunately not all card makes are compatible. ie: Tesco own brand being one

Good and reliable make is KINGSTON

Put your dodgy card into a pc card ready, copy and paste the data onto the new card.

If that doesn't work then I would say you have a tempromental card reader in your SatNav and need a replacement.

Let me know how you get on.

Hi there
i would refer to your users manual and make sure that you are not using something that is not compatable with your system so you dont damage the unit

Did you run out of memory? Just it have an SDHC slot? If so install a 16GB card. Try again.

The screen shows an X when the navigation software on your TomTom is corrupted ... and it will not start (boot) up the device.
Have you tried contacting TomTom Support, to have them walk you through this problem ? assuming you recently bought your TomTom and it is still on warranty.

do a google search for tomtom then connect it to your computer after installing tomtom home and it should automatically update, you will firstly need to set up an account with tomtom though. (free i think)
