STEP 1

Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

STEP 2

Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

STEP 3

Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

STEP 4

Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

Tomtom 700 dead


After checking around around the web it seems that you are not the only one to get the green screen of death. My suggestion is to hold reset for several seconds, release reset and hold the power button button for 10 seconds. If this doesn't work the only other option is to let the unit sit for several days to let the internal battery completly drain, once drained theirs a good chance it will function normally, this allows any temporary memory to be cleared. Good Luck & hope this helps L8R

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.

Tomtom 700


you might want to try:

-- plug to the electrical charger, reset for 15+ secs
-- connect to the computer, download Tomtom app and try updating the application

I had a 2006 purchased go 700 and did the above and it is working much better with latest application.

Tomtom 700 will not fully load


On the bottom of the TomTom there is a tiny hole that you stick a small paper clip into. This is a reset button. Its almost not visable you really have to look for it. I have the same problem but I hit the reset and it fixed the problem. This reset won't change or hurt any of your settings it just resets the hard drive.

Reset your device
Reset your TomTom using a straightened paper clip.

Will not stay on


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.
contact them about the problem...
