My tomtom one has started flipping between a variety of demo screens during navigation instead of showing the map. It continues to give voice directions and if I touch the screen, it will briefly show the map but go back to demo screens within 5 sec. I've pressed the reset button and turned off/on numerous times, but nothing has changed. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: Tomtom One screen problem
Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.
If this doesn't help.

I found this article online, and it may work for you:
"Ok this has worked on at least four tomtom one’s
And one xl’s that i have tried,
First of all connect your tomtom to your computer.
making sure your online,Go to log on.
if you’ve not created an account create one now.
If you’ve had to create an account restart tomtom home.
You should have the tomtom home screen in front of you,
Now even if tomtom home is showing you logged in, ignore
this click your email adderss in the top right hand side of the screen
and log in again and click continue.
Then click Device/disconnect device.
Now your tomtom will update itself and your maps will be restored"
1. open your tomtom as a folder 2. copy all info from tt to a new folder on your computer 3. format tt in fat32 4. download tomtom home and run it 5. make all upgrades that the tthome sais 6. copy the folders with maps and voices from saved ones 7. if restarts or freeze on logo, open tt as folder and delete the file MapSettings.cfg from map folder 8. say thank you
change screen settings. here's how to; goto change pref, -safety pref- (ignore first screen)-done-- done--done--then it will come up with---turn off map display, select never option then done , you will also need to check to see if your screen saver option are set to slide show and turn these off as well.
It was the first time I loaded uppdate maps (for free, because new navigator) and then it was blocked with the message:no maps found, when trying to start it...My last try was to put the navigator on his usb support and opening" TomTom HOME" program, connected to "map share" and loaded some tips, removed it "safely" from the usb connection and it showed the right view again...Puhhh. Thanks anyway, your site gived quite som motivation.
tomtom one doesnt have the fm transmitter, try clicking on the navigation screen ie, where it shows the maps, menu 1 of 3 should come up, select the spanner icon, which is change preferences, you should be presented with preferences one of 7, which the lower middle one should show a speaker, if the speaker says turn sound on, click on the icon, if it has a red cross saying turn off sound, then leave it alone and click the arrow to get up preference menu 2 of 7, this has volume preferences,, you can slide it to 100% and do a test. select done to return to navigation screen.
