SOURCE: No GPS signal?
I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.

hi you need to reset the unit at the back near the connection there is a small button that needs to be held down when holding the power button on for a few seconds. once you have done this turn it on and it will work fine

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.

You might want to try updating your TomTom through TomTom Home. It loads something called "QuickFix" onto the TomTom, which I guess tells the TomTom where GPS satellites are going to be. I get a fix in about 5-15 seconds if I keep this updated, otherwise it takes a few minutes.
