No GPS Signal for TomTom 130

I live in Minneapolis/St.Paul and get service. Sometimes it decides that it won't get a GPS signal even in downtown large metro areas. I am in San Diego and it won't get a signal. What's the deal? What can I do?

Hi,

If you can, go outside to open space, no building or trees.
grab the tomtom and hold the power switch down regardless if it turned on or off, it will play drums wait 5-25 mins (make sure you are not walking around) , you will pick up a signal.

try this it works on most units.

Thanks,
Pabs

KEEP ON GETTING SEARCHING FOR RADIO SIGNAL


The tomtom traffic system uses either a 'O2 (White SIM) or Vodaphone (RED SIM). Service fluctuates between good and bad.
Contact tomtom support and ask for a replacement SIM card

TOMTOM GO LIVE 2050 problem with TOMTOM Server


Have you been able to get satellite connections (signals) when you're outdoors ? and not under/around tall buildings or overhanging obstructions.
Regularly get QuickGPSfix update (using TomTom HOME) to download the latest satellite positions (for the next 7 days), to enable your GPS to find the satellites quicker.

Can you use a car tomtom when walking


Yes, definitely You can, but that will not provide correct position of GPS signal. And GPS signal will be showed with delay.
Otherwise You can Use TomTom as You walking,
Battery will not last much long. So make sure You charge Your TomTom Nav in full. :)

My tomtom one 130 will not pick up a valid GPS signal anymore no matter where I am. It just says: "waiting for a valid GPS signal", even when I know that there is, any suggestions?


Install Tomtom Home on your pc and connect your gps on it.Do not update the firmware yet, but ony the "gpsfix" program. If it does not work, try a reset by holding the power button for 15 seconds.Let´´s get in touch

My Tomtom 130 GPS seems to be frozen.


Hello there:
first off i would consult the troubleshooting section in your users manual if you dont have it contact the manufacture of the device for a manual.
otherwise try this remove the power cord and press and hold in the reset button for 2 min this may help reset the unit.
If not remove the power cord and leave the unit sit for several hours it has a re learning function built in also if you can go to www.tomtom.com to view a downloadable users
