    not sure if this is the right section for this but it didnt seme to fit into any of the others. Basically i purchased a TomTom sat nav system today to help me when i drive to uni next week. (only passed test last week so rather scared) I took it out of the box and put in the sim card thing in but i keep getting a little animation of the simcard being removed and a red cross appearing over it, i guessd this means remove it so i did but it then said to put it in then remove it, and the cycle went on. No instructions about trouble shooting ect so in stuck. I am gonna take it back tomorrow but do you guys have any ideas?
    cheers, sorry for the worlds longest post!!

    the red cross meant do not remove. do you have tom tom home on your pc you may be able to reinstall it.

    It sounds like you might have messed it up.

    On most sat navs there is a reset hole which you can push with a pen nib. Make sure the card is in properly, then reset the device. Now wait - leave it for 30 mins or so to be sure. If it hasn't loaded the software by then then it's probably not going to work.
