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.

Go to My Computer, then the TomTom drive and click explore. Move your Map folder to the desktop. Then, delete everything on the tomtom drive. Unplug it, plug it back in, and start up Tomtom HOME and install all updates, keep unplugging, plugging back in, and installing updates until there aren't any more updates. Then move your map folder back to where it was on your TomTom drive.

Please rate, Thank you!

SOURCE: TomTom One V3 - Problem connecting to TomTom Home

I have the same problem in NL.. TT Home has problems downloading over Wireless connections.
Try connecting the computer to the internet via a cable. You may have to restart TTHome or maybe even your PC. The download should be quicker and more reliable :)

The problem is related to the MTU size and working around that can be very technical.

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

My tomtom keeps losing satelites , what can i do


A TomTom GPS Devices requires a minimum of at 4 satellites in order to triangulate your position. Losing signal can be caused by many different factors such as your in an area with tall buildings or trees, unable to connect to at least 4 satellites, or possibly that the device hasn't been used in a long time. Besides simply exchanging it to resolve the issue TomTom has a feature called QuickGPSFix which determines where the GPS satellites will be located for the next 7 days. This feature is not yet available for MyTomTom but it will either be added by the On Device automatic updates when it is available or for advanced users you can use a Bluetooth connection with a compatible mobile phone.

On your TomTom Device go to TomTomServices > Tap Download QuickGPSFix. Almost any phone is compatible especially newer SmartPhones. Hopefully this helps you resolve your issue.

Two year old tom tom xl can take up to 15mins to get a signal any advice


The TomTom device needs to tune in on three or more GPS satelites to find your position. On start, it scans the hemisphere for any satelites and ten minutes and more are not uncommon to establish fixes on them.

The solution is a data package you can download from TomTom servers via the Home software, "QuickGPSFix". It holds precomputed satelite positions for the next few days which speeds up locking to satelites to a few seconds from minutes. However, you need to update the package roughly once a week or the initial delay will pop up again.

Unit is searching for gps signal but unable to


charge it up via the usb to computer cable for a few hours, then take it outside in clear view of the open sky and restart the unit and let it sit there up to 30 minutes.

if that fails, an update will probably cure the problem.

to find updates for your tomtom, download tomtom home Here if you dont have it already and follow the instructions after running tomtom home.

TomTom One GPS fault


I had the same problem after downloading the latest maps, the unit was slow to boot up and would not find any satelites. I had no response from e-mails to Tom tom tech support and I was going to give up and buy a new device if this fix failed. I had tried paper clip resets and resetting to factory settings but they had not worked.

After reading the previous answer to this link I searched Tom tom support for 'clear flash' and the search results were more useful than the FAQ on the normal support pages.

I used Tom tom home to uninstall the current software application and then reinstalled the latest version (I had to go through several updates as my version of the software was from when I purchased the unit in 2007), I then downloaded and ran Clear flash and made sure that I disconnected the tom tom from my PC using the correct procedure (using the eject button in the bottom of the tom tom home screen as I read that this could have contributed to the problem in the first place).

After another reset the device came to life and after a few minutes searching for satelites outside the device worked as it should (try checking the configure GPS option if it is taking a while to find a signal, it could be just me but it seems to speed up the search process).

Hope this helps.

My tom tom ONe cannot get a valid Satelite Signal just stays wait


If you are indoors then move outdoors to get a signal.

If you are outdoors then move your location by a few yards and sometimes it will suddenly aquire the satellites.

Happens occasionally with my unit. I normally set a route up then start driving and it suddenly starts to work OK.
