Question about Tomtom ONE 3rd Edition GPS

1 Answer

My Tom Tom One 3rd edition battery will not hold a charge. I plugged it in to my computer and to my my 12V in my car but to no avail. The little light on near the on/off button on the top of the GPS turns green when plugged in. The sounds or jingle at start up are heard but no visual then it goes dead when unplugged.. Have plugged unit overnite but the same things happens all over again. Louise

SOURCE: GPS Won't Turn On

My 510 was doing the exact same thing.
I called customer support and they helped me get it working again.
866-486-6866 is the number but here is what they had me do.
I had to push down the reset button for 15 seconds (the reset is in a small cut out near where you plug in the charger on the bottom.you will need to use a pin and you will feel the pin push in the button if you have it in the right spot.)
Then release the reset and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. the screen should come right back on.
If you need more help I suggest calling the 866# they are very helpful.

SOURCE: Tom Tom 700 will not turn on.

Take a look inside your tomtom go . The photo's uploaded are of the GO and Go 300 / 500 / 700 10676aa.jpgseries so yours might not look exactly the same but will be similar to these. SEE PHOTO of the IC's highlighted RED. U24 is on the same side of the circuit board as the card reader. U25 is on the same side of the board as the power socket. These are the 2 chips / IC's that will be blown if reversed supply or more than about 6 volts has been applied. The blown components are usually blown due to attaching the WRONG charger or a faulty charger. ( the tomtom cigarette lighter leads often go faulty ) These IC's are very very small ( just 3.5mm across ) and the 10 pins ( 5 on each side ) are even smaller and very close together therefore normal soldering ability will not allow a novice to replace them. Special soldering irons are needed , magnifying glass or special microscope for electronics + a steady hand and good light. Its highly unlikely that a home repair is possible. Besides that , even engineers with years of soldering experience have great difficulty replacing these components and it often takes me 30 minutes just to replace one of these IC's and I have a steady hand. Most normal electronics repair companys cannot repair this type of component as they will normally deal with bigger things. So unfortunatly, your "corner of the street" TV repair shop won't be able to fix it for ya either. As far as I know TomTom don't repair these IC's either as its too fiddly and time consuming and for them not worth the effort. Your only hope is one of the repair people offering this service on online . Try a look on ebay under "faulty tomtom" .

Battery's probably dead. If you're within warranty you can have it replaced by contacting TomTom. Otherwise, you can still use the device, you'll just have to have it always connected to the charger.

Can you tell me where is the reset button on tom tom 1 IQ


I'm a little confused about which unit you have, but the answer is simple enough..... If there isn't a small hole on the bottom of the GPS, then simply hold the on/off button for approximately 15 seconds -- until the unit restarts. The small "hole" that I'm referring to will be in the same vicinity as the connector that the cable plugs into. It should say reset right by it, if the reset button is there. If you do have a reset button on the bottom of the device, you'll need to use something to press the button. A paper clip straightened out a bit works perfectly.

The following lists are from Tom Tom's website. I hope this helps:

Sounds like your battery not charged fully. Check your charger unit , possibly fuse in plug faulty or cigarette lighter fuse in car blown.

Have tom tom for car,need to wire it up to m/cycle


I've wired my tom tom for use on a motor bike.
you CANT run 12v straight into the tomtom, you can see on the cig lighter plug it has a 5v output.
So I bought cheap lighter socket, it looks like plastic tube with the cable running out of the back.
So the wires run from the battery (via an in line fuse) to the cig adaptors, these are hidden in my side luggage bag to keep dry and up to the tomtom. job done

try charging the tom tom fully and then reset while it is charging. a tom tom will not reset unless the new battery is fully charged which may take some time if you only have a car charger.

I experienced the same thing. The battery was fully discharged. Plug the GPS into your USB port or car charger to provide power. Wait about 5 minutes for the battery to get a little charge, then try turning it on.
