Hi, these units are pre loaded with all you need to start up and go, if you have it positioned it correctly and no signal rec, iwould say the unit is faulty, return it to the dealer for an exchange, hope this helps

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

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

Hi, can't find any reference on my tom tom go 910 to an altimeter function but it is supposed to have one


tap the satellite tab on the main screen (where the satellite bars are) then tap the right hand side where the satellite bars are on that next screen..

thats where mine is located, but it might be different on yours if you moved the location of the satellite bar on the main map page (there is a couple of different options to choose from in the options tab, as to where to locate the satellite bar)

Similar issue..tom tom would not pickup sattelites.


definitely!never ever keep GPS in glovebox or center console heat in cxars goes above 140 degrees in summer and can cause meltdown and distortion of plastic as well as total destruction of SD cards It also kills off memory.
If you are goiung to store a GPS for any period place it in a place away from magnets heat and extreme cold ( heat and cold also destroy batteries)

Poor gps reception on tom tom one


my tom tom one third edition connects in less than 40 seconds from ca cold start.
first reset everything then connect it to your computer and upload all the needed updates to it( especially the QUICKGPSFIX feature that speeds up the time it takes to connect to satellites.
after that. go outside and wait for the signal to be acquired ( less than 2 minutes)

No GPS Signal in TomTom One XL all of a sudden


I suddenly lost the GPS signal today and could not get it back. All I got was the "No valid GPS signal". My solution was to tap on the GPS satellite bars when in the route map. this brought up the "Status summary page of the TOMTOM.

I then again tapped the satellite bar which brought up the "GPS Status" page. I then tapped the bar labeled "configure".

The radio button next to the option titled "Minutes (dm.m') was selected. I then moved the selection to "Degrees (d.d) and it started working.

I had just downloaded the GPS fix 5 days ago so it is not like this suddenly caused it to stop working.

This may not work for everyone but this is what it took to get mine working.

Cheers

Not acquire sattelites


place the GPS outside with a clear 360 degree view of sky or as much of the horizon as possible and leave it for a few hours it needs to download the almanac from all satellites before doing this

from the Acquiring Satellite page press menu and make sure that the topline of the menu reads "Use With GPS off" if it reads "Use With GPS on" (this means it will not find any SAT's ie for indoor use) press enter to turn the GPS Receiver on
