When the GPS cannot calculate route, usually due to bad signal.

The device is not reading any input and/or is stuck on one screen.
Hold down the power button which is located on the top of the device. This will turn off the GPS. Once it is completely off wait about five seconds before repressing the power button to turn it back on.
If the power button isn't working, the battery may be drained. By plugging the TomTom back into a power outlet the battery can be charged. If the device only works when plugged in the battery may need to be replaced. Refer to our Battery Replacement Guide.

If the device still doesn't work, contact TomTom with your issue and send the device back, as the touchscreen component may be faulty.
