I have a 910 running 7.161 and this has the facility to set it to switch on & off when the ignition is turned ( I have my sat navs permanantly wired )

I have just bought another unit, a One XL, this runs the newer version 7.162 or 3. This one only powers off when the ignition is turned and wont power up.

Is it possible to put my 910 version onto the XL ?. If so how ?.

Thanks.

No you cannot use the 910 software on the One XL it simply won't work. There are no TomTom devices in the current product range that offer the ability to auto power on and off - Mike

I think it was the old version 6 on the GO 910 I borrowed which didn't have an option to turn off with ignition. That's what goosed the hard drive on it.
Seemed to me that it tried to power off as it was booting up becuase the poor connection to the mount made it think I had turned off the ignition.

Anyway the device got repaired and now it has version 7 loaded on it. I notice that the default setting is now NOT to power off when the ignition is turned off. That must mean something ???

The version on both my 910 & the XL have the option to power off when the charging source is removed. This though also powers up on the 910 but only off on the XL, which is a pity.
