Single wire system?

Guest Svengalie

Recommended Posts

So I've got this tomtom rider. It hasn't charged from the bike since purchase.

It's been back for repair twice, taken weeks. It still wont charge. It's pretty trivial to connect up and should be hard to get wrong. It's simply a black and red wire that you hook up to the battery.

The chap on support is now blaming my bike. He's asking if I have a

"single wire system"

or a

"can bus system"

WTF? How can I tell if I do? I ride a Kawasaki ZZR1400

Speaking as a TomTom owner and having had the associated crap that goes with it... The support from them is useless. Personally I wouldn't bother with them. The black /red charging wire from your tomTom mount should be capapble of coming straight off the battery, just like mine did on my Pan. I had charging problems also, as does, from what I gather, everyone who uses them on the bike. The problem with mine was down to the pins in the mount itself, and the fact that being so damn small they don't line up with the unit itself properly. I solved my problem by wiring in a 12v cigarette socket so I could use the car charger instead.....
