Sounds like you tried to upgrade and something went wrong.
If there is a reset button on the bottom or back that'll be your best bet. The red X means it cannot find the operating system but usually a hard reset will fix it.

When your tomtom is flashing a red cross on it, then it means there is a problem with the unit. The problem mainly is that the device did not start up properly. And that is because it did not find the application.
What you have to do is to reset the device for it to start working again. For your type of tom tom, to reset it, to reset it.
Check that the battery is fully charged or you charge it for about 2 hours, remove the SD card, then straighten a paper clip or something similar to push the reset button, then you press the on/off button for about 5 seconds to power on the device then you insert your SD card. The reset button is at the bottom of the device where you have the USB connection port.

The moment you connect your TomTom device to a computer, your device should ask Do you want to connect to 'computer'. Once you tap YES, it should connect to the computer. TomTom HOME then starts.

Ok, there are a couple of options that may or may not work. The problem with TomTom units is that they do not like being used with universal chargers and sometimes they can be damaged when using one. The hard disk drive inside them in particular is very sensitive.

Try these options first before thinking about having the unit repaired -

Try holding the reset button for anywhere between 1 and 20 seconds.

Try holding the power button for at least 3 seconds

Lastly hold down the reset button for 10-15 seconds and then while holding the reset button, press the power button and hold that for around 5-10 seconds.

If you are unsure of where the reset button is, here is an image showing its location -

If none of the above steps work then it is highly likely that your unit has suffered damage that needs to be repaired by a specialist.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
