The TomTom One GPS has three versions--the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Edition. Each will fail to power on for the same reasons--either there is a problem with the battery or power outlet, or there is an issue with the device's internal software. Before attempting to reset the device, charge the battery for at least two hours. Try charging the battery using a power outlet other than the one last used to make sure the problem is not the power outlet.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Remove the SD memory card from the bottom of the TomTom One. This step is only necessary if a memory card is inserted. To remove, just pull the card out with your fingers.

  2. 2

    Insert a straightened paper clip into the "Reset" hole at the bottom of the TomTom One. Push and hold the Reset button inside the hole for about 15 seconds.

  3. 3

    Hold down the "On/Off" button on top of the TomTom One for at least five seconds. The device will reset and power on. Reinsert the memory card, if applicable, after the device has powered on.
