After updates it takes about 45 seconds before it will do anything again and sometimes it won't pick up satellites. I switch it off then on again and it is usually OK even after that but sometimes it needs to be on the move before it recognises satellites.

Green light is on when plugged into car cigarette lighter but cannot switch it on and the screen remains black


hook it up to the usb cable to your computer for a few hours (but not more then 4 hours) then press and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds.

once you get it started, hook it up to tomtom home and see if it has the latest updates.

if you do not have tomtom home, you can download it HERE

Can't get a satalite signal for tomtom XL


This can happen on rare occasions in very built up areas. Most certainly it can happen indoors.

Using tom tom home from your computer plug your device in and tell it to update. most can now accept the gpsquick fix which will allow tom toms to pick up sats a little quicker

Waiting for a valid gps signal


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.

My Tom Tom One takes a long time to pick up a GPS signal (30 to 45 minutes)


You might want to try updating your TomTom through TomTom Home. It loads something called "QuickFix" onto the TomTom, which I guess tells the TomTom where GPS satellites are going to be. I get a fix in about 5-15 seconds if I keep this updated, otherwise it takes a few minutes.

Go to TomTom Home on your computer and do a update for your unit. In the update list you should see a GPS quick fix which helps the TomTom's aquire a signal faster. Hope this helps.
