It is a design flaw. I had the exact thing happen and TomTom advised "not to let it get warm" inside the car. I'm sorry, this is supposed to be affixed to the windshield and it gets hot. When the sun hits, it stops charging. Hold it in front of the AC vent for a few minutes, it cools down and it charges again. But it shuts off in the heat because it will not charge!

Was this a new purchase? if so you should be able to get that, but your computer should save the files when you connect too it

It is not a transmitter, it puts out no signal. It is a receiver ... As far as I know, no one has turned the satellites off.

If your receiver is not receiving a signal, I suggest you have a conversation with Tomtom. Go here: http://www.tomtom.com/, select your country, look for a "contact us" or "support" tab.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Your Tomtom's programing got corrupted. You need to have the memory re-Flashed to a good program can be loaded. Bring your Tomtom to a local electronics repair shop and have it done there.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

Try sticking a blunt pin in the reset hole in the shoe fixing plate. Let me know if works!

I had the same problem after downloading the latest maps, the unit was slow to boot up and would not find any satelites. I had no response from e-mails to Tom tom tech support and I was going to give up and buy a new device if this fix failed. I had tried paper clip resets and resetting to factory settings but they had not worked.

After reading the previous answer to this link I searched Tom tom support for 'clear flash' and the search results were more useful than the FAQ on the normal support pages.

I used Tom tom home to uninstall the current software application and then reinstalled the latest version (I had to go through several updates as my version of the software was from when I purchased the unit in 2007), I then downloaded and ran Clear flash and made sure that I disconnected the tom tom from my PC using the correct procedure (using the eject button in the bottom of the tom tom home screen as I read that this could have contributed to the problem in the first place).

After another reset the device came to life and after a few minutes searching for satelites outside the device worked as it should (try checking the configure GPS option if it is taking a while to find a signal, it could be just me but it seems to speed up the search process).

Hope this helps.
