TomTom Stopped Working

I rarely use my TomTom, Maybe 8 times in the past 3 months. It suddenly stopped working, saying "Please wait" (in 5 different languages) on a white screen with the hour glass I've hit the reset button a few times with no result. Any help? Will the manufacturer fix this for me?

My TomTom One has totally stopped working. I've tried updating, charging, everything. When I turn it on, it starts like the first time but freezes when I try to select a voice.

You might have some corrupted records in your device storage media.
Try the following:
1. Connect your TomTom to your PC
2. Assuming you have windows XP, double-click 'My Computer' on the desktop
3. You should see 'Tomtom One E:' or similar name under the heading 'Devices with Removable Storage'
4. Right-click on this icon and select 'Properties'
5. Under the 'Tools' tab and 'Error Checking' click on 'Check Now'
6. Check the two boxes 'automatically Fix file System Errors' and 'Scan for and attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors'
7. Click on 'Check Now'
8. Allow the check to complete
10. Disconnect your TomTom and see if the problem is fixed.

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......

check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair

TomTom One GPS fault

I would send it back to tomtom again and tell them it is definatly not finding satellites. Hopefully they will find the fault this time. if you prefer not to send it to tomtom but have it checked somewhere else , then maybe you can search online with google as I know there are at least 3 places to have it looked at but I won't mention them here as its not a forum for advertising. There are several reasons why its not picking up sats but there are 3 most likely causes. A/ Contact with top antenna board has become broken / unplugged ~ tomtom one and one V2. - B/ Ribbon cable has become unplugged ~ tomtom Go - C/ software faulty or faulty sd card . ......... Most likely cause is faulty file on SD card .
