Tomtom700 no signal on gps 700

    I've reset after every operation...

    . Backup (both TT Home and WE).

    . Format

    . Restore

    . Reset 10 secs and 30 secs.

    . Power up quick and into diags.

    Only clue to things not being right is the final diags screen before I release the power switch - it has a date on the 4 corners of the screen (barely visible as pixels are in half view) and the date is 01/01/2000. I bought the unit in July 2005 so looks like some firmware's damaged. Question is, do these things have a BIOS?!

    All else is good - including the GPS search status showing the orange and black search spinning away happily. Best I've had is the middle circle bar go as far north as the first circle edge (and then not always, mostly nothing) - but that's it, no sats at all recently (had one grey sat for half a bar a while back).

    No point sending it back to TomTom as cost would be more than another unit at today's prices - but I paid a large amount of TomTom's R&R back in the day when prices were £500 for one of these so am feeling a bit anoyed that TT release no technical advice, diags or any other form of real support - other than offer a repair after telling you to reboot it and it don't fix the problem. Reminds me of most first line Help Desks.

Have you pressed the reset button which is worked by pressing the arrow to the right of the on/off button? It worked for me.

Can I get a GPS signal in Malta? I have a Tom Tom 700

Route will not plan until the GPS is locked.
Soft reset on the button underneath for 30 seconds will reset the GPS receiver on a 700.
Then wait upto 4 minutes for a refreshed lock after power up

Make sure you are not under any structure such as a car port that will block the signal. The unit must be able to see the sky to receive signals
