You need to connect the Tom Tom to the computer with a USB cable. If it is connected properly then it will ask Conect to the computer Yes / No. If you say Yes you can then use Tom Tom Home (supplied on the CD which came with the SatNav) to manage software / map downloads.

You don't need a satellite signal to download software / maps.

Hello, the gps signal is not working on my tom tom one n14644. I've tried numerous attemps to find the signal, but I am unsuccessful, can you guys help me?


I am glad to HELP YOU!

I'd suggest you - first thing first - to make sure your TomTom device is getting the proper signal. Maybe in the area where you've tested it are too many tall buildings or too strong magnetic fields. So I'd say to get your device in a park or even outside the city/town limits and to retry to acquire the satellites signal.
If you will have the same result that will lead to the opinion that the GPS receiver itself it's damaged and must be replaced.
If your device is still under a warranty terms & conditions - then take it back to the dealer and ask for a total replacement or for a total refund. DON'T TRY TO FIX BY YOURSELF THE GPS RECEIVER! It's too fragile and maybe you will end up with a useless device...!
Anyway - before any attempt make sure your TomTom battery IS FULLY CHARGED!


My best regards!

My Tom Tom cannot find a GPS signal or sattelite signal. It has been working fine but is no longer able to find a signal or where i am. i have turned it on and off and can navigate through all the pages...


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.

Please, do the following:

1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. You choose the ones you want to install.
Please, report back if you need further assistance

Tomtom not getting a valid GPS signal. Not picking up any satelitte signals at all.And yes I am outside,and fully charged and keep getting a prompt waiting for a valid GPS Signal.Tomtom is 1 yearand 1...


This is a common issue with TomTom software in general!
To alleviate this issue, Tomtom has released QuickGPS add-on to locate satellites faster. If you have not got it loaded to your device, download the appropriate version of QuickGPS from the TomTom site and make sure you use TomTom Home (connected to the Web and your device) to update both your MAP and QuickGPS on a regular basis.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Waiting for valid gps signal


TomTom had issues with the software on several versions of their GPS units. According to their website, it should take no longer than 5 minutes for your unit to acquire a signal. If it it taking longer than this, they recommend 3 possible solutions:
1. Reset your device

2. Install the latest application
http://www.tomtom.com/6218

3.Install QuickGPSfix

I hope the links help get your GPS working ASAP.
Good luck!

I found a toll free number for TomTom, called and actually got a real person. My computer recognized the TomTom (TomTom home was version 7. something); my TomTom unit had software that was too old and it did not recognize the TomTom home. Catherine in tech support sent me a download to update the software and it worked. Thanks for getting back to me. I am attaching the link for anyone that needs to update software in their TomTom GO 300:
