Customer Question

My Tomtom 1515 will not turn on. It is a replacement for a 1535 that I purchased in April.
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?
Customer: It is not a TV it is a gps TOMtom 1515
JA: What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It kept showing me I was on the wrong road and the speed of my vehicle kept showing that I was going a lot faster than I was, etc.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I cannot do anything because when I plug it in on the Tomtom app on the computer it tells me that it is not connected.
JA: Anything else you want the GPS expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I even tried the direct plug in that came with the gps on the 12 volt plug in my car, and it still won't turn on.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I need to ask about a few points first:
Are you using the same power adapter that you used previously with the 1535 that was replaced, perhaps?

Or, how are you charging and powering the 1515, please?
