    Is it a TT rider1 or TT rider2? Does it power up when connected to the mains charger? Does it switch on when connected to the bike cradle? Check the fuse in the car charger.

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

Can the Tomtom recharge wheh the car is not in use - eg in the garage


No, then tom tom cannot recharge when the car is not on. You need to turn on the car before your tom tom can charge. The battery gets to charge the tom tom when in use. Once the car is turned off the gps will not charge. You can try out a practical by turning off your car and plugging the gps to see if it will work. Or the cigarette lighter, does it work when the car is turned off. Since the cigarette lighter does not turn on when the car is off, then it means it gps cannot charge once the car is turned off.
Hope this information helped you!

My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom


The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

I turn on my tom tom go 700 and the screen appears with a picture of the tom tom in a green box and then it stops and i wont turn of


If your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is frozen, won’t turn on or does not behave as it should, it can be fixed by resetting or restarting your TomTom device.
A reset will not delete any data from your device, with the exception of SMS messages on TomTom GO500/700.
  1. Connect your GO/ONE/RIDER to the power charger. If you have a power charger, use it to power your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER. If you do not have a power charger, make sure that the battery in your TomTom GO/ONE is fully charged.
    Note: You need to charge your GO/ONE for at least 2 hours using the 12-24V cigarette lighter adapter.
  2. Reset your GO/ONE/RIDER. To reset the unit, you simply have to push a straightened paper clip (or something similar) into the RESET hole on the device.
    • On TomTom GO 910/710/510, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device.

    • On TomTom GO 700/500/300, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device with the word RESET right next to it.

    • On TomTom ONE, the RESET hole is located on the bottom of the device, with the word RESET right next to it (just below the SD card slot).

    • On TomTom RIDER, the RESET hole is on the bottom of the device, behind the SD card door. When opening the SD card door you will see the RESET hole on the left, right underneath the SD card slot.

  3. Your TomTom GO/ONE/RIDER is now reset. Finally, press and hold the power button for 2 seconds.

My cigarette lighter outlet is not working and want to a dvd player this weekend. is there a battery adapter I can use


Too much of a problem to hardwire. Possible though. Most are ugly fixes. Check the cars accessory fuse. Many devices have the fuse built in to the plug. Good luck.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

Can i first charge my tomtom 330xl on the usb port of my computer


If it is plugged into the car, you use the DC charger. You can charge it using the usb port on your computer as well. In the accessories section of tomtom.com you will find an ac adaptor as well that can be purchased to charge it to an electrical outlet.

WILL NOT TURN ON


Hello LUCKYPURPLE,

The problem could be either with the charger, the battery inside of the GPS, or could be a more serious hardware failure.

You don't mention what method you are using to charge the GPS. Most GPS units can be charged three different ways: connection to the cigarette lighter / accessory jack in your automobile, connection to your computer via a USB cable, or from an electrical outlet using an AC adapter. To determine if the charger is at fault, try charging the unit using a different method. For example, if the GPS turns on after charging in your vehicle but not after connection to your computer, the problem likely lies with the USB cable or port.

If the unit does not turn on regardless of what method you use to charge it, then you likely either need to replace the internal battery or have the unit serviced by a knowledgeable technician.

Best regards,
Ken

I can't charge my GPS while I am in the car


Verify that the car cigarette lighter outlet is working. Do you have something that you could plug into the lighter like a light?

With the car running plug the Garmin into the cigarette lighter outlet. Does it come on without pushing the ON button? If the answer is no then there is either a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter outlet. It should come on by itself if the lighter is working. Also are you using Garmin cables and DC adapter?

Will not turn on


do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)
