My Tom Tom was dropped and now will neither switch off nor give any directions. I have asked Halfords for advice and they tell me to contact customer support at Tom Tom. Can you advise (by phone on *********** how to get it working again? Thank you.

This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the unit and hold the power button to off for 60 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the device.
Let me know the results please
Thank you

I have don e what you suggest and the result is the same (ie the tomtom logo is displayed with the little ;picture with two outlines of hands)
And it does not load past this correct? You cannot get to the main page or menu.

I have now reconnected to the charger and the Tomtom is working so you clearly have a longdistance ability to 'sort things out at arms length'. Thank you.
