Traveling through Colorado and it can't find a satellite for the last 45 minutes. Using it in a semi truck

This issue might occur due to the QuickGPSFix data or the application on the device being corrupted.

To correct the issue, we will need to clear the Download, Ephem and Empheris folder contents.

The 'Downloads' folder will now need to be cleared. The steps to perform this are listed below:

1) Click 'Start' and go to 'My Documents'.

2) In 'My Documents' there is going to be a TomTom folder, open this.

3) There should now be a HOME folder, open this.

4) There will now be a 'From Device' folder, delete this entire folder.

5) Once this folder is deleted, open the 'Downloads' folder and delete everything inside of it.

Now let us delete the Ephemeris folder contents from the computer first, since it saves the GPSFix information. If this information is corrupted, it can prevent the device from acquiring the satellite signals and locking onto them.

To do so:

1. Unplug the TomTom device from computer (if connected).

2. Fully Exit TomTom HOME.

3. Locate the "Ephemeris" folder in the following location on your computer:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Windows Vista: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Macintosh: Macintosh HD/<username>/Documents/TomTom/HOME/Download/complete

4. Select all the contents of ephemeris folder and delete them.

Close that window and connect the TomTom device to the computer. Then open [My Computer] and double click on TomTom Drive icon to open. Delete the contents of Ephem folder. This should delete the contents of GPSFix from the device as well.

You can then update the device to download the latest device updates, which will automatically include the QuickGPSFix update. Hence forth the device should detect the GPS signals correctly

From the User's manual:

To perform a clean reset, press the launch button and simultaneously pressing the stylus on the reset switch. Then a warning message appears. Press to do clean reset, or press to leave the operation screen.
Performing a soft reset will not change the data in the device; while performing a clean reset will delete all data.

How do I update my GPS system?

1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. You choose the ones you want to install.

Please, report back if you need further assistance

Distinator gps can not find GPS signal (say's signal o low)

Not sure what model you have But if its the A600 /01or 5210 and you are running destinator 6.0 or higher you first need to recharge the battery so that it shows 5 bars on the battery icon. Low signal can be from a bad or low battery. a faulty antenna ( flip out)
I am the distributor for these GPS in Australia. If you need a new battery contact me as i am now the only one with these batteries.
I also recommend you get one of our 50Db antennas The skymaster. to help improve the signal and take some of the load off the battery. Do not use those cheap Chinese antennas as they are only 28Db and cause more lag than they are worth.
the site is Marbella Australia contactt me from there
