There it is, sitting on the book-shelf in the spare room, not connected to anything - no 12v supply, no TMC(?) radio add-on (that's in the car) and fully charged when it was put there a week or so ago. For some reason my TomTom Go v3 turns itself on and just sits there wasting its battery.
OK, so I turn it off and leave it where it is. Some few days later it does the same thing - turn itself on.
It does it every now and again - no pattern to it from what I can see. It just turns itself on by itself and sits there on the shelf.....waiting.......
Why does it do this? Any ideas?
Thanks in hope....

This problem has been brought up before in the forum. Try this link::http://discussions.tomtom.com/t5/TomTom-ONE-Start-
There also was a post elsewhere which had another fix, but I could not find it. I believe it was a software fix.

Many thanks to one and all who responded (both here and in other posts re this problem), including Holly in Support.
I've not had another self-power-on since removing the ONE Application and re-installing it - this is 3 weeks since this action was taken.
I feel I can consider this solution was the fix. I hope I'm not speaking too early as this problem was random and intermittent - but so far so good.
PS Thanks to the forum for simply being there and available!

have had the same problem with my tomtom one XL330. It has been replaced two times by tomtom and it still has the same problem. Tomtom has no fix for this problem it is a factory default and all tomtom products should be recalled and taken off the market

I've had the same problem with my V3 for over 2 years. I contacted support and they could not fix it.
Unexplained switch ons, or .... in the middle of the night being woken up by a female voice telling me to turn right.
Eventually, I just gave up and bit the bullet, as I'd had enough ......
So today. I just ordered a new 550.
I hope that works better.
