Hello,

Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

Updated unit and still acquiring satelites is showing, what can i do?


If your unit is still acquiring satellite, then it means the signal strength is weak, try to get it outside where it can be facing the sky directly so it will be able to acquire satellite. Once you just update your gps receiver, it seems like it is brand new and when it wants to first acquire satellite, it might take longer to do so. But if it has access to the sky directly, it should take about 3 to 5 minutes to acquire.
If your unit is indoor, it may not acquire satellite, even if it is close to the window, it will not, but if it is outside, then it will acquire faster.
Check if you have any protective coating on your windshield or electronic devices which interfere with the unit from receiving signal from the satellite. Try to see if your gps receiver can use an antenna, then connect one to it and your gps will acquire satellite.
Try to reset your gps first before trying any other solution for the unit.

I am not getting satalite signal on my tom tom xl


The most common problem to this is because the TomTom doesn't know it's current location.  It may be that you last used your device a long distance from where you currently are now.  I don't know how long you waited for the gps signal to acquire but it can take up to 10 minutes (even on military aircraft if they don't know current location).  
Power it up and press on the signal strength icon.  That will bring up your satellite tracking status.  If it don't look like it's doing anything, then your gps has probably malfunctioned.  If it looks like it's acquiring satellites, then give it a good amount of time (10-15 minutes) to see if it can find your location.  I recommend doing it outside of your vehicle with no satellite obstructions to make the process go faster.
Good Luck

Never been able to get satellite signal


if you exit navigation and go to the main manu, you can go into setup and do a GPS reset, if this does not get it going then your GPS receiver or antenna has failed...

Takes 30 minutes to locate satellites to begin navigation


Hello sassysdad,

In order to achieve a location lock your GPS receiver must receive complete reports from at least four Global Positioning Satellites. If you are standing still in an area with a relatively clear view of the sky, this should happen fairly quicky. However, if you are operating your GPS indoors, in a vehicle, or in an area with obstructions that block the line of sight between the receiver and the sky or if you are moving, it makes it more likely that the receiver will be unable to receive these signals or that part of the signals may be garbled or missed. In these cases it can take some time for the GPS receiver to aquire all the satellite data it needs.

Newer GPS receivers are much less susceptible to this issue, but it can still occur depending on how and where you are operating.

Best regards,
Ken
