Traveling through Colorado and it can't find a satellite for the last 45 minutes. Using it in a semi truck

This issue might occur due to the QuickGPSFix data or the application on the device being corrupted.

To correct the issue, we will need to clear the Download, Ephem and Empheris folder contents.

The 'Downloads' folder will now need to be cleared. The steps to perform this are listed below:

1) Click 'Start' and go to 'My Documents'.

2) In 'My Documents' there is going to be a TomTom folder, open this.

3) There should now be a HOME folder, open this.

4) There will now be a 'From Device' folder, delete this entire folder.

5) Once this folder is deleted, open the 'Downloads' folder and delete everything inside of it.

Now let us delete the Ephemeris folder contents from the computer first, since it saves the GPSFix information. If this information is corrupted, it can prevent the device from acquiring the satellite signals and locking onto them.

To do so:

1. Unplug the TomTom device from computer (if connected).

2. Fully Exit TomTom HOME.

3. Locate the "Ephemeris" folder in the following location on your computer:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Windows Vista: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Macintosh: Macintosh HD/<username>/Documents/TomTom/HOME/Download/complete

4. Select all the contents of ephemeris folder and delete them.

Close that window and connect the TomTom device to the computer. Then open [My Computer] and double click on TomTom Drive icon to open. Delete the contents of Ephem folder. This should delete the contents of GPSFix from the device as well.

You can then update the device to download the latest device updates, which will automatically include the QuickGPSFix update. Hence forth the device should detect the GPS signals correctly

How can i update new maps to my tomtom ?

You should have received a disc with your TomTom where you can install a program to your computer which gathers new up to date map information from the internet and then, after plugging the Tomtom into the computer and following steps to sync the unit, your GPS Receiver should be up to date with the latest maps.
In case you don't know where your CD is Tomtom's website has the program available for download.
Good Luck, hope this helps.

Update download for tom tom xxl 540s is too big for unit, lost all maps

Theres good news for you, you can get a SD card for your tomtom, and all you have to do is to install or download your maps on the SD card then fix it into your tomtom and you will be able to view your maps from there. For the lost maps, connect your tomtom to your computer, be sure to have your drivers software, then you select your tomtom form your computer, then you install all lost maps back on it by restoring all old maps. But for large downloads, download all new maps on a SD card. That should do the job.
Hope this information came in handy.

Wehave a tom tom go 530 (refurbished). Its

Let's hope there's nothing wrong with your TomTom. Here's some information that may assist you with your Go 530.

Your TomTom GO must be outside to locate your current position. The first time you start your GO, it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position.

If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.

In the future, your position will be found much faster, normally within a few seconds.

Once your GO has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full color and shows your position on the map.

Finding your position faster:

To find your position faster, use the home dock in combination with TomTom HOME on your computer. When connected to the Internet, TomTom HOME
automatically downloads information which helps your GO locate your position faster.

click here to download TomTom Home.

Note: Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield that may prevent TomTom GO from locating your current position. If this is a problem in your vehicle, use the TomTom External
Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks.
