Question about Tomtom Go Plus GPS Receiver
I started my tom tom 710, couldnt pick up a signal it knows where i am and can do all the routes etc, it just won't pick up a signal went onto a site in ireland which gave the following advice and i did these but none worked - reset - go to open area with no buildings, left it on for an hour and a half but still no signal - tried quick fix gps none of the above worked i would be greatful if you can suggest some other possible ways of fixing the problem
I have had my GPS( TOmTOM One) on Waiting for Signal for 2 weeks now and I finally fixed it.
My symptomtoms (word play) were no signal at open areas, when connected to Tom Tom Home it showed exactly where I was and worked through the PC but when disconnected back to the same thing.
I called Tom Tom CS and nothing, FLash did nothing, factory defaults nothing, and updating did nothing.
What I did:
I charged the unit completely.
I took a paperclip and while off pressed on the reset button at the bottom by SD slot. I held it there for 30 mississippi's.
I did not turn it on after letting go.
I went outside to my car (parked on roof of parking lot) turned it on and set it on my dash vertically.
I left and came back in 1 hour and wallaaaaa. It is working perfectly!
Let me know if this fixes it.

Do you have the latest software? Mine shipped with outdated software. Had to download it then I did a gpsquickfix and now it finds all the satellites and has been working fine.

You might have better luck getting a solution to this problem if you post it under the Tom Tom 710 section of the site. I found your problem under the Garmin 276C section.

It is possible that the receiver has given out, check to see if it is within manufacturers warranty, if it is then the manuf should fix it for free. Save all your routes etc before sending it back as it will most certainly get wiped and factory loaded.
