I have a Tomtom XXL...
I have a Tomtom XXL After not using it for several months the battery was dead. I recharged the battery but now it doesn't work correctly. I,ve tried holding the on off button to rest it . It makes the noise for resetting but only goes as far as the start screen. No touch screen response.
