GPS works sometimes. Other times it wont and has a slash thru the navigation icon. Bad GPS signal??? Software need updated???


You didn't say what brand of GPS system you had, but this explanation should work for you anyway.

My GPS system is a Garmin, and when I see the symptoms you describe, it most likely means that I need to update my maps. But It could also mean that I'm not receiving a good GPS signal due to tall buildings surrounding me, or being out in the country at the bottom of a steep hill. I'd suggest going to your GPS' manufacturer online and see if you can download another user manual for your model, then check inside it to see what those signals mean. When updated, your GPS system should be perfect again, but you'll need to update (by connecting your GPS system to your computer so you can download the updates into your GPS) sometimes once every couple of weeks if updates are made, or new maps are created because of detours and and road closures, etc.. Unfortunately companies sometimes let you know when there are new changes available to their customers.

Its an easy fix and takes very little time. Best Wishes!

GPS wont aquire a satellite


    Hello there and happy new year
    If Your Unit Cannot Acquire Satellite Signals
  1. For your Garmin GPS unit to acquire the satellite signals it needs to function properly, the unit must be taken outside, away from mountains, tall buildings and heavy foliage where it can get a clear view of the sky. Keep the unit stationary for several minutes while the GPS unit acquires the necessary satellite signals.It may take several minutes for the unit to locate a good solid signal
  2. OK
  3. Hope this is very helpful please keep me posted on this ok?
    Best regards Michael

Sat nav turns off


Not quite 100% sure what your description of the problem is saying.

If it isn't the auto shutoff but is when you tell it to follow a route or other function the problem is most likely a corrupted map or part of the map.
If it is brand new don't mess with it take it back. If it were out of warrenty you would have to reset or reload the map. It's not a major problem but for a brand new unit it just shouldn't happen. Garmin makes pretty good units so don't get discouraged by one being wonky.

My tomtom lost signal today it has not come back.the model i have is tomtom one 125. the blue arrow is not on the correct street.my tomtom is only 6 month old


I am tempted! yes here goes Your signal wont come back, your signal wont come back ( Old Tune of my boomerang wont come back)

It probably wont if the battery is flat , so first try charging bthe battery before turning to map programming. If that doesn't work then expect the worst.... you have damaged the SIIRF chip which is the chip that contacts the satellites
Very expensive to reapair cheaper to buy a new GPS generally
tomtom are notorious for this problem, but most times its caused by user abuse of overcharging or starting the car with the GPS plugged to DC spikes are common even though they dont blow the fuse in the charger plug. Even Mobile phones should be plugged after the engine is started. none of the GPS Distributors othert than one wilkl tell you of this money spinner. Next time aroumd you may want to consider an ALTINA see Marbella Australia and also read their FAQ on caring for your GPS
