Want to dispose of my old SatNav in a responsible way, in terms of environmental concerns. Also...
Are there any security risks if I just take it to my local recycling depot as (waste appliances/electrical???) If someone picks it up, would they be able to get into my TomTom account, or access my routes and addresses? How do I wipe it clean as a precaution?

Any suggestions/help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Reset the device to factory values all your personal data is erased

    you can drop it off at a local recycling depot or give it to someone to fix their broken device.
