How do i charge Tomtom

Can anyone help me please. Only had Tomtom for a day and it is telling me battery low. Saw in manual that it takes 2 hours to charge fully in car. Does it charge while giving directions?

Hi,

if it is connected to your cars 12V power supply it'll usually charge but much slower than if it is turned off and connected to your computer.


Regards
Lars.

Hi Lars,

 

Thank you for replying. Oh brill, I can also charge it through my computer? I will do that then. As you say it doesn't charge very quickly via car. Do you think i need to buy a plug charger, or not necessary?

 

With regards

The gps is normally operated (giving directions) while plugged into the car charger.  The gps will only run for about 1.5 to 2 hours on just the battery alone.
