From the Main Menu press the button underneath the spanner>Demo and deselect the first square if it is ticked>Save.

With your device turned off, press and hold the "OK" button in between the arrows and press the "On" button.

On screen you should see the "Maintenance Menu". Scroll to "GPS menu" using the arrow keys and select it using the "OK" button. Select "Perform a GPS cold start". When this has finished, press the "Home" key twice (the one with the three lines on it). Turn the unit off, then go outside, raise the antenna, and turn it on again. Keep it still for 10-15 minutes and the unit will start to pick up GPS again.

There is a firmware update to correct this issue, if you are still having it.

SOURCE: waiting for valid gps signal

The GPS needs at least 3 satellite signals to operate.You are probably in a bad reception area. Move around a bit and try again until you see a signal array of 3 or more!

SOURCE: initial gm-510 gps has intermittent gps signal and loose antenna

well a loose antenna can cause intermittent connections, but so can a low battery, despite it being plugged into a power source. Make sure battery is fully chatrged before use. I would suspect the battery chage first. Even get a new battery

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.

Navman Tracker 5500


I am having same trouble. I contacted Navman NSW and went through all the settings without result. It was suggested that the problem could be the external antenna, if not a fault in the machine. I have seen an after market antenna for about $19 so I might try that. It does seem as though the antenna is not talking to the Tracker.

Gps antenee not recieving signals


please do check the terminal connector of the gps to the antenna
connector cable there should be is a voltage reading of 5 volt dc on the gps using a multitester.if the answer is no then your gps receiver
is out of order.if 4 volt to almost 5volt that should be
be ok..next step is to check the gps antenna cable connector
to the gps antenna using multitester a for short or open connection.set the tester to x1 and calibrate setting then test
short cable should reading full almost zero on the scale,open has almost
no resistance at all.a good gps antenna will read a difference
of forward and reverse resistance reading i cannot tell u the actual reading
of the antenna because it all depend on the length of the cable
and the gps antenna model.but it usually work if u test it this way
please do take note that u are very sure of your setting on the
gps it self before u make this test.
good luck

This problem can have several causes.
  1. A component fault on the units internal antenna circuit board.
  2. ribbon cable has become detatched inside that connects antenna board with main circuit board.
  3. A software fault.
  4. A component fault on the processor board.
All the above except number 3 will require proffessional investigation. if its a software fault then you may be able to recover data by a re-install through TomTom Home or by recovery backup ( you did make a backup of your SD card , didn't you ? ) of your SD card.

Raytheon RC520 Powers up, but NO FIX appears on upper right corner of display.


If you can find the white junction box where the antenna is connected take a volt meter and measure across the red and ground wire, you should have 12 volts. Across the yellow and ground wire you should see 10 to 12 volts it should also vary. This will tell you that all DC voltages and the seatalk voltages are OK. I would next secure power to the antenna, leave it off a couple minutes and then try it again. If these suggestions do not help you may need to replace the 120 GPS. The new RS125 is the replacement for this unit.

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.

GPS Elevation/Azimuth Always Read Zeros


Josh, The grey cable that you see (sometimes it comes in a black woven cable as well) as soon as you open up your unit has to be connected to the main board in the corner. Additionally on the I/O card or GPS board (the board that's attached to the rear cover) has to be connected as well. If you see any loose cables and you find a place it fits, plug it in. So, the answer to your question is yes, that could be the problem. -Daniel
