To capture screenshots of your TomTom GPS (at least works in a GO 730), do the following:

  • Connect the device to your PC
  • Use Windows Explorer to view the device root folder
  • Create a folder called screen
  • Go inside that folder and create an empty text file using Notepad.exe called capture (no extension).
  • Restart the device.

To take a screenshot, tap the screen in the top left, preferably to avoid pressing a valid button. You will hear a camera shutter-like sound and the capture will be stored in the \screen\ directory as a BMP file.
