Plug in your tomtom and open my computer. Make note of the driver letter next to the tomtom symbol. Click Start, run (or search on vista or windows 7) and type in "CMD" without quotes and hit enter. a black window will open. type the letter you noted in my computer followed by a colon. Example: F: and press enter.
then type "chkdsk /f" without quotes and press enter. Answer yes to all the following prompts. once completed "takes less than a minute" type exit.

You can also try tomtom backup and then restore.

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

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.

TomTomGPS Looses Signal and can not ge it back


ohh dear! I wish I had a rubber stamp for this.

TomTom are cheap and nasty GPS and suffer from more problems than a leper.By some means or other it is possible that either your battery is too low to connect.. although in DC it still will not charge sufficiently to connect for a long time. try the AC charger if it came with one. Otherwise you have damaged the SIIRF chip and that is an expensive repair
The number of TT faults currently running on this media with the same problem is about 600

Never start the engine with the GPS plugged in. Its not covered by warranty for this fault

Keeps displaying cannot get valid gps signal was working fine last week now does not work


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.
