Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

CANNOT GET A SIGNAL

GPS switches on okay. The correct screens come up but as of today the GPS cannot get a signal. I last used the GPS 3 days ago and everything seemed fine, though I do recall some unusual screens popping up when I was fiddling around with it whilst driving and trying to set a new course. The messade that keeps repeating is: "Looking for a valid signal". I have a TOMTOM ONE 3rd edition

I have a Navman s35 but these days it cannot receive a GPS signal. I heard some programs might have a problem like my GPS but I am not sure. There is the problem anywhere like outdoor, no cloud in sunny...


I had the same fault which corrected itself after a couple of months left in a drawer. I suspect it reset it self after the battery went completely flat. You could try removing the battery switching on and off a few times to remove any power still in capacitors and then refit battery. Then Reset

My tom tom says no gps signal for the last two weeks. How do I fix this.


Did anything change in your environment (new car?) two weeks ago?

What happened immediately before you lost signal?

Is everything else working okay on the unit?

Have you updated everything with Tom Tom Home?

Have you tried resetting the unit (paperclip in the small hole on the bottom of the navigator)?

Have you tried resetting factory defaults? (Menu item under Change Preferences; you need to Show All Menu Items to see this one.)

BTW, nobody's satellite got hit by anything.

Tom Tom sat nav takes ages to get a GPS signal now.


Think I have sorted the problem out. I read some of your readers' solutions and it was mentioned that it may be advisable to log onto the GPS update. So, I installed my disc which came with the pack and followed the instructions to download the GPS update (and also took the opportunity to download other updates which took some time). Anyway, used the sat nav this morning and so far, it appears to be working normally now and the signal comes on in seconds!

No gps signal on my tomtom1 version 3 any ideas? it says on the the screen no gps signal was fine when i used it friday but this happened when i tried to use it today


Have you tried doing a reset? There is a hole in the bottom of your TomTom for that purpose. It has solved an occasional hangup with mine.

No gps signal 3 days now.


on the menu screen you should see exit at the top. when you click this you will get a screen to exit navigaiton as if to go to the mp3 player, from there click on setup and then gps reset.

if you have the genie lamp on the bottom left of the navigation screen then you have the old version, you can upgrade using these files and instructions:
