My tomtom was dead so I changed(on 1xl) the battery £10.50 + £1.49pp. Changing battery is just very easy(I have done it first time).Just undo the 4 screws and take care not to mark the body.
Take the flat screwdriver and pinch the semi circle (round side ) and it will just come from its grove.

They are about £10
Has anyone changed the battery on a Tom Tom Classic
as I would like the details on how to do it.

Ther is a tiny hole in the socket conectoin, this is a hidden reset switch. You will need to use a paper clip or wire to reset it. Good Luck.

Connect your device with TomTom Home and access the memory (like if it was an external disk)
Create the following 2 files without ant extension in the root:

I am in Australia, have used tomtom xl first time last week. I am going to USA in 7 days does it have usa maps in it, if not where do I download them from.

Install the software that came with the TOM TOM then connect it with the USB cable that came with it. It will automatically take you to, then you can buy and download maps directly to your Tom Tom.

Attempting to download Did not load automatically, so did as suggested and searched for Google asks if I want, etc. Do not have broadband. What do you...

have you tried setting your home address on the tomtom itself? I was having the same problem until I did that and then it downloaded. But it wont download by itself. You have to go into your "my computer" file and find the tomtom device and select installtomtomhome

Display show ANT Test Mode...will not respond to anything

I did not solve the sort of just solved itself which is still extremely aggravating. Don't get me wrong, I am happy it is now working for the most part but to spend this kind of money and have it not work all the time is frustrating. This is not the first time I have encountered issues but I am generally able to reset it on my own. This last issue was just so bizzare that I cannot even begin to tell you all of the things the just popped up on the screen without me even touching it. At one point, it showed ANT Test Off, then it showed a huge X across the screen. Another time it simply read -1.00. After it was done displaying these random bits of data, I tried to reset one last time and had success. However, the data is not uploading to Garmin/connect. So my frustration continues.

TomTOm Go 720 turns itself on whilst in the case and without being moved or touched at all. What can cause this?

There is no solution and TomTom does not car. I got a XL325 for Christmas. It turned itself on and if we didn't catch it in time it runs the battery down. Went through all sort of repairs with customer service (haha) uninstall and reinstall, repair scans, etc, Finally in April they had me send it in for repair and I got a XL320 refurbished one in return. Well, guess what it did the same thing and I had to go through all of the same things, I've spent hours on the phone with them. Well in June they told me to send it back and this time I got a XL310 in return. I think each time it is a cheaper model. Well, you guessed it this one turns itself on also. It doesn't matter where it is in the house or car, if it is not used it turns itself on. DO NOT BUY A TOM TOM, DO NOT BUY A TOM TOM.
