You can get free shared updates from the users when you install the Tom Tom Home Software, but to update the map with the TomTom approved information, you will have to pay, unfortunately. So far, the people-uploaded maps have helped me immensely, though.

Do you have a route planned?? I have the GO630 and there's a powersave feature built in that turns it off when not in use, though it will stay on if I have a route set or if I'm moving in the car and it's tracking my location.

According to Kevin A who says, and thanks by the way (There is a reset button on the back at the top of the unit. It should be on the right side as you turn the unit around. Insert a paperclip or pin into this hole, and the unit should reset) at it works 100% because I tried this morning after being quoted £55 to have my GO910 fixed and now it works after the price of a paper clip.

Remove the SD card
The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,
formatting is better done in a card reader.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system
Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.
You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.
In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.
Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card
Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card
It should now work

Hello there:
1. first refer to the useres manual if you still have it
2.Make sure that the power cord is in good condition and the fuse is not blown.
3. Double check all connections to ensure that there is good contact and not loose.
4. If you can get to the battery compartment remove the battery and check for the condition of the battery and the connections make sure they are all clean and are making good connection.
5. Now try to power up and press and hold in the reset for 2 minutes and then release and see if the unit will restart correctly.
if not i would contact a local tomtom dealer to have it bench tested. ok?
best regards michael

you dont say what you want to delete, normally put your device in the cradle provided and operate it from your pc/laptop.
Good luck and please rate my response

This is usually an SD card issue. If you have one in then remove it and try again.

If there is no SD card involved then the other cause is that files may have been deleted or somehow corrupted.
In that case you would need to try and restore if you took a backup.
I have a spare card with my original tom tom software on there.

You could always try a HARD reset too !

I contacted tomtom and with in 2 weeks i have my original 910 back in full working order. AND I DIDN'T COST ME A PENNY.
My tomtom was an insurance replacement due to stupid little thieves, but i didn't have any form of a receipt. I contacted free and they went through the normal try resetting the device BUT HOLD DOWN THE RESET BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS NOT THE 15 THEY STATE IN THEIR HELP SECTION. Done that and it DID SWITCH ON only for a about 1 min due to the battery not holding its charge. So they sent me all the packaging to return it to them, did ask that i put proof of purchase in but couldn't so just wrote a quick not saying insurance replacement but checked when i activated my device on my computer it was july 2006 so expected to a repair fee thinking it only had 1 years warranty but if you brought after Jan 2005 it has a 2 year warranty. Received it back today full working order and the battery replaced. Worth contacting TOMTOM number is on www.tomtom.com/368
Hope this helps.
