TomTom GO mobile not starting on Samsung Galaxy S8+

Hi guys, has anyone else had this since getting the Samsung S8+?

My TomTom GO mobile app will not start, it gets stuck on the startup screen with a spinng circle and goes no further.

I have tried the usual stuff, uninstall, clear various Google services and apps cache and reinstall, auto times etc and still nothing.

I have attached a screen shot hoping someone can help with this.

Many thanks.

Hi Neil,

Welcome to the Community!

Unfortunately, others have reported a similar issue as well. Please, follow the steps below, which have helped many to sort this out:
  • Uninstall the app
  • Log out of the Google Playstore
  • Delete Android / data / com.tomtom.gplay.navapp and Android / OBB / com.tomtom.gplay.navapp
  • Open Google Playstore,log in and reinstall

Cheers, Mikko
Hi, thanks for the reply. I tried the above but there were no folders or files under those names, only references to the MyDrive and Speed Camera apps.

Also how exactly do you log out of Google Playstore? There are no options so I cleared the Store cache and data.

So what I did do didn't help.

Any more suggestions?

Just posted my solution for the S7 Edge. In Battery Settings enable network in the background.
