Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver
Why does my device switch off when it is connected to my computer via USB?
when i connect it asks me if i want to connect. i say yes. then a still picture appears with timtom Go 720 and a white & yellow background and a picture of the device. nothing else happens. i dont know if its charging or not. i press the on/off button but nothing happens. i hit the screen and nothing happens. there is a green light on the bottom of the device sitting in the desk dock, but how do know when it is charging.
i can see on my pc that it connects to tomtom home ok and downloads the updates etc. But i thought while it is connected to the pc i would be able to play around with the device or at least see that it is charging.
please help me.
you can call me on 0413163658. email: email@example.com

Just followed the lead above and got it sorted straight away. Many thanks. Just one thing though. When it says look for the little arrow in the bottom right hand corner.It means the blue arrow that is the bottom right of the six symbles displayed. I was looking for an arrow in the very corner of the screen. Duh!! lol.

I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.
