Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver
My Tom Tom works perfectly in France but since coming to Malta, it is saying that it is looking for a GPS signal. Then it says 'No route planned'....even though I have selected one.
Route will not plan until the GPS is locked.
Soft reset on the button underneath for 30 seconds will reset the GPS receiver on a 700.
Then wait upto 4 minutes for a refreshed lock after power up

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

Just purchased a tomtom XL IQ and am having problems with connecting to a GPS signal it keeps saying trying to find a valid GPS signal, can this be fixed or should I replace it for not working properly?

A couple solutions:
1) Make sure the TomTom can "see" the sky well... the GPS satellite waves are rather weak and easily blocked by trees, and anything not a window.
2) Hook up your TomTom to the computer (see details at www.tomtom.com or in the manual)
2b) Do a "sync" and download all updates. One of the updates is a small file that tells the TomTom where the satellites are located this week, and helps it sync up much faster. The longer time between uses, the longer it takes TomTom to find the satellites, and that can takes up to 2-5 minutes sometimes.
That can be frustrating with a car full of people waiting to get going and the driver doesn't want to drive without making sure the TomTom works and is giving valid directions.
