I wonder if somehow the iPod fried the TomTom? Take it back to the manufacturer. It might have been a coincidence.

Have you tried doing a hard restart with the tomtom. Small pinhole button on the bottom.

i tryed to do a hard reset but there is no pin hole in the bottom. i tryed holding the power key for 15 seconds like tom tom's website says to do and that didn't work. i just had to wait till the GPS went flat it goes good as gold now its sad to see there is no reset when you need it.
