It sounds a bit like you've been discharging the battery enough to wear it out (if I read between the lines that your previous practice has been to run it off battery, then recharge, run off battery, recharge).

These devices are not really intended for that sort of thing and I only ever use mine when plugged in, either to the cigar lighter or my desktop connector.

Check your Warranty period (its usually buried in one of the files in the "Licences" folder on the device). You may well have two years.

BTW, did you know there's a specific TomTom section of the forum?
