    Default Battery on tom tom 920

    I can "operate" my TT 920 through TT Home on computer i.e. see map loading , set home address, see it charging etc.
    However when it comes off cradle the TT won't load up
    Is this a battery issue or is something else wrong ?
    I have not used the TT for a couple of months

    Any help appreciated

    It maybe possible you have a battery failure.
    But will it restore to a previous time before you updated it?
    Or if you didn't update it is it really fully charged
    "if it isn't you would have to possibly do a reboot of something then do a restore maybe" I don't have this unit but maybe till someone comes along with this unit ya could post a few more ideas huh."

    A faulty or old battery can cause many problems.
    I suggest you charge the TT for at least 6 hours.
    If it still won't work without the cradle you have two options for the failure:
    a) the battery is dead - a replacement will fix that
    b) the "fuse" for the battery is faulty - this will cause the device to work as normal on external power but no charge will go to the battery for charging
