The power outlet / 12V socket of my car was broken because of the high power demand of my TomTom, my mechanic said. I have a TomTom START 42, it's about 10 months old and I've used it only about 15 times. My mechanic says I shouldn't use the TomTom anymore because when I plug it in, it takes so much power from the car batery that it causes short circuit and breaks the power outlet.
Is this possible? What could be done?
