Overcome the problem, bought an external arial (magnetic). Bought it on E Bay for a couple of pounds. You have to put it on roof when travelling it works great, socket is mmcx.

My sat nav won't pick up any satelites


All GPS devices will need a clear view of the southern sky (in the northern hemisphere anyway) to obtain a "fix" or "lock" to display the location on the map.

A fix can usually be had in under a minute or two. The first time "out of the box" however, may require additional time to display the proper location on the display or output. If the device has built-in batteries, bring the device outdoors to an open area (no tree cover, tall buildings, etc.) and allow up to 10 - 15 minutes for the initial fix. If there are no batteries in the unit, extend the cord to allow the device to be outside the car - in a similar location described above (an open parking lot is very good), and allow 10 or 15 minutes to update the location.

GPS device require an open view to the satellites in the sky. Heavy tree cover, tall buildings, etc can cause significant problems for the GPS to obtain the info to determine its location. Some device provide a jack for connection of an external antenna input. These often have an amplifier built in, and can compensate for less than ideal conditions. Antennas with an amplifier built-in are called "active" antennas. Some vehicles may have a film on the windshield (usually a defroster) that can interfere with receiving the satellite signals. In this case, an external antenna would be a logical choice. When placed on the roof, or other location outside, it feeds the signals to the GPS in the car.

A low profile, active external GPS antenna. This will often outperform the one built-in to your GPS.

What fitting is the external antenna is it mmxc?


Hi there,

I hope everybody visiting this webpage will find this answer useful.

First of all, ignore the antenna connector recommended within the RAC Sat Nav 200 manual, it's wrong.

What you need is the :

GPS Antenna 1M Length MMCX with a
180 degrees straight connector.

Make sure it's a MMCX straight connector.

Plug in the antenna and within half a minute of typing your postcode destination into the Sat Nav the reception will have been picked up.

Hope this saves everybody a lot of hassle.

My tom tom signal keeps dropping out for hours


ok my aussie compatriot your problem is mainly the battery not being fully charged on the ac charger, it also needs a clear view of the sky. most tomtoms have an external antenna port mmcx but dont buy thoise cheap 28db units as they are trouble, go to Marbella Australia and get one of their 50Db external mouse antennas and that will help
tremendously. Perhaps dump your tomtom while your at it as they are nothing but trouble. just check the numer of issue son this forum.
check out the A8010 or the super A860 on the marbella site then sell off your tomtom

No gps signal


Is the Flip-Up antenna UP? Can the unit 'see' the Sky? - Most only work near the front windshield.poorly everywhere else in the car. The layers of car metal blocks or attenuates (cuts down/reduces) the satellite signals. Also, there might be a MENU option to enable/disable GPS. If you get no joy, could be the connection to the antenna is bad/broken. If all else fails, look for a tiny hole somewhere on the outside of the case and press into it gently with apaperclip. Good Luck

A few options:

1. (if new / first time) fully charge - take awhile like 8 hrs or something like that - then let it sit for 15-30 mins. That is how long mine took
2. soft reset (then do #1 again) - the "button"
3. hard reset (then do #1 again) - the "switch"
4. check whether port / baud rate settings are correct (on mine, there seems to be a "hidden" button above "test"
