Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tom Tom one Will not perform setup, locks up at voice selection.

Device was working fine for 4 months, until the 23rd. Used it to navigate to an address, worked. Turned off. When I turned it back on to navigate to a different address unit did some sort of reset turned itself off, rebooted and came on in the setup mode. Performed setup steps but will not go pats voice selection. Tried different things but when a button is selected in "voice selection" -Cancel, -Select, the device freezes for about 60 sec then restarts again in the setup mode. You can cycle through the voices and "test" them but you can't save a voice.

To change language:
See my other post on this subject: the steps are also applicable for your device.

Basically: 'Change preference' (look for Spanner image Icon) -> Scroll right Arrow until 'Change language' (look for Flags image Icon) -> Select English -> Select an English Voice
To set Home address:
''Change preferences' -> scroll right to get 'Change Home Location' -> use 'Adress' to enter new address or 'Recent destination' to select a recently entered 'navigate to' address. Hope it helps. Let me know how you go and good luck.

My Tom Tom One unit works OK but I cannot get any sound. There is a red cross on the Turn Off Sound but I cannot change it. When I try it flags 'You did not select a usable voice.'


You have not set a (male or female) voice to be used by your Tomtom One device:
use 'Change preferences' -> use Right arrow to get second creen for your preference 2 of 5 -> 'Change voie' -> scroll to 'select a voice' -> Click 'Test' to hear selected voice sample dialog -> Finally, click 'Select' when you are happy with the selected voice.
If you need additional voices, use TomTom Home to download them.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Tom Tom clicks constantly


Unfortunately the device is not very user servicable. Your best bet wuold be to find a repair shop and get a quote on repair vs. new.

Not speaking street names


To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:
  • Connect your TomTom to your computer
  • When the TomTom asks do you want to connect to the computer, choose Yes
  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device.
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

Cannot select computer voice on Tom Tom 930


I eventually found out that pressing the reset pin and re-starting allowed me to access the computer voices.

Tom tom gps speakers not working.


I have had the same problem. I bought my gps used.I soon found out sound would not come out of the gps untill I taped on the back of the gps. I solved my problem. The voice coil in the speaker becomes detached. Their are 4 screws in the back of the gps once you open up the gps the speaker is attached to the back of the inside of the gps. You have to carefully detach the speaker from the back of the gps ( I used a small flat head screw driver like one from a eye glass repair kit ) then press lightly on the center of the speaker wile the gps is trying to talk (hopefully when you do this the speaker will make noise). I stacked 2 dimes in the center of the housing of the speaker then reatached the speaker to the housing thus sandwitching the 2 dimes between the housing and the center of the speaker. For my unit this put enough pressure on the center of the speaker for the system to work. Then I reassembled the gps. It was about 4 or 5 months ago and the speaker still works fine. Some times the easy solution works just fine.

No Sound


1) First check the mute.
2) Make sure there aren’t headphones plugged in, that will disable the speakers.
3) Check the audio setup
4) Check your Volume lock

Changing Volume Lock
The remote comes preset to allow independent volume control of each selected device (Global Volume Unlock).
However, you may change the Volume Lock setting to Global Volume Lock so that one device’s volume will
control volume in all other modes. After that, you can perform Individual Volume Unlock on a selected device to
set its volume control for independent operation or Global Volume Unlock to remove all volume locking.
Locking Volume Control to One Mode (Global Volume Lock)
1. Press and hold SET until the red LED blinks twice; then release.
2. Enter 9-9-3 and then press the mode key for the device you want to control volume (for example, TV).
The LED blinks twice. Now when you press VOL+, VOL-, or Mute, the selected device (for example,
TV) will control the volume regardless of the current mode.
Unlocking All Volume Control (Restoring Global Unlock)
1. Press and hold SET until the red LED blinks twice; then release.
2. Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL+. The LED blinks four times. Volume is now
independently controlled for all programmed devices.
Unlocking a Single Device’s Volume Control
1. Press a device key (TV, VCR/DVD, CBL/ SAT, or AUX).
2. Press and hold SET until the red LED blinks twice; then release.
3. Enter 9-9-3 and then press VOL-. The LED blinks four times. Volume is now
independently controlled for the selected

MY TOM TOM WILL NOT TURN ON. THE GREEN LIGHT IS ON, AND IT'S CHARGED. WHERE CAN I GO TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL, REPAIR IT FOR ME RIGHT AWAY? I'M GOING ON A TRIP IN 2 DAYS. THANK YOU. [email protected]


I solved this problem by finding an answer on the Tom Tom website. Using a paper clip end insert it on the reset button and press for at least 10 seconds. The reset button is difficult to find; it's located close to the connector at the base of the unit. It is an annoying problem as it happens without any rhyme or reason. I now carry a paper clip in the car!
