You could have blown a fuse or something more serious.

Might pay to consult the instruction manual, or contact TomTom support?.

What makes you think that you have used the wrong in car charger. Was it regulated or unregulated, did it have the correct wattage/voltage etc?.

tomtom label says 5V DC 2A. + centre. Charger output DC=10.5v fuse 5A. +centre

I think you might as well take it apart and see if you can do anything but putting in double the voltage is likely to have fried it.

Fuses protect against over current not over voltage.

Fried what? The battery or something more serious? I can get a battery for £10 and have seen on youtube how to replace.Do you think this will work?

It most likely not the battery, but the internal circuit, which might not be serviceable. In otherwise you now might have a very dead TomTom, and only a replacement might resolve the problem?.

If you have a local TomTom dealer ask them, or contact TomTom support.

Do what I do and stick a label on each and every charger you own saying what appliance it belongs to.

Saves a lot of problems and at least you won't do it again.
