    TomTom 720 has the feature that it will turn off upon losing external power supply. Is it possible to do the reverse? Have TomTom 720 turn itself automatically on when it's connected to an external power source?

    Thanks!

    Nope. A much earlier software version allowed for units to be turned when when, for example, they were plugged into a cigarette lighter in the car and the car was then turned on.

    That feature was removed in later Navcore software updates.

    So do I. Is there an avenue for getting TomTom to do something about this?
