    Appears to not accept charge

    Hi there Thanks for the replies. After posting, last night I did remember the current being an issue and connected the unit to a mains charger. After 10 minutes or so it accepted the soft reset ('drums') and seems to have powered up OK. Fingers crossed and thanks again.

    1005 dropped / very unhappy

    When carrying various items to my car, frustratingly, my Tomtom slipped out of my grasp. It was in a proper case and fell about 2 feet, maybe less. Despite what was a relatively small impact, it may have been exaggerated since it was one of the 'ends' that landed rather than spread across the...

    TomTom 1005 - weird problem

    I tried the reset as suggested and used the device last night (its my wife's) and - good news - it worked fine. Hopefully, that's it.

    TomTom 1005 - weird problem

    Hi, I'd appreciate any guidance on this please - just started happening: The unit accepts the destination when entered, and moves to show the route summary - but when it should start, it seems to freeze - with the location signal staying stationary and the speed indicator showing 0mph. It is...

    Adapting GO1005 for Motorcycle Use (power feed?)

    Hi, I'm trying to find the spec of the sockets on the bike (it is a 2012 Ducati Multistrada). Thanks

    Adapting GO1005 for Motorcycle Use (power feed?)

    Yes, you've got the picture. In fact I can pull the lead out of the dock and it looks like this. Presumably, with the correct fitting I can run that straight from the bike's 12V outlet (similar too but smaller than the cigarette lighter type) - assuming there would be no protection from the...

    GO910 Powering Off

    I've not wanted to try a hard reset for fear of losing favourites, etc, but since I haven't used the 920 for a long while, I guess its not such an issue, now. Do you think that might do it? Or definitely a new battery? thanks

    Adapting GO1005 for Motorcycle Use (power feed?)

    Hi I have a handy carrier from motorcycle accessory firm GIVI which allows me to use the 1005 on my 'bike. It is however unpowered so I am constrained to the internal battery life. Any tips on how I can power it? I'm a competent home mechanic and can run the wiring....but the 1005 sits in a...

    Looking at a Rider 400

    Hi there, I've just read a complimentary review on the Rider 400 in "RIDE" magazine. It does however criticise the lack of live services - but adds you can get them if paired with a smartphone. Anyone have experience of what's involved / how effective this is? Also, as well as motorcycle use...
