hi everyone, new to here , so be kind :)

my tom tom has been going slow past few days , even putting a post code is a nightmare ,

so was wondering if taking it back to factory settings would help ?

if so how do i go about that ?

told you im a complete novice when it comes to things like this

any help would be great thanks ......Ian
 
More likely all you need do is perform a hard reset -- this will clear out current working memory, but will disturb none of your settings.

Small detail -- we haven't a clue as to which TomTom you own. Would help if you would either complete your profile or at least give us a clue in your post.

On the whole, you can reset newer units by pressing and holding the main power button for ~20 seconds, at which time you will see the TomTom logo and usually hear the 'drums'. At that point, immediately release the button and allow the device to continue its cold start boot.

oops sorry ......told you im a novice just going to nip out to the car and get it :)
 
As it's a relatively balmy 10C where you are at present (never even saw that for a high here in Colorado today), at least we haven't put you out too badly :rolleyes:
 
Yes, follow our '20 second reset' instructions above and get back to us with results.
