Tomtom wont turn on after chaging it


Reset your TomTom GPS receiver. Some TomTom users report occasional difficulty in getting their TomTom navigation device to start or respond to commands. If this happens to you, remedy the problem by performing a soft reset on your TomTom GPS. A soft reset will reset the data on your TomTom GPS receiver without erasing any data. To reset a TomTom GPS receiver, press and hold the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds or until the device restarts.

Let your TomTom GPS acquire the necessary satellite signals outside. If the device has trouble connecting to the satellite signals necessary for its operation, try an easy fix to the problem. Take your TomTom GPS receiver outside, away from mountains, tall buildings or heavy foliage, where the receiver has a clear view of the sky. Wait for a few moments while the device acquires the necessary satellite signals.

Waiting for gps signal all the time


GPS satellites are constantly flying over the globe, they are not in a stationary orbit, you have to wait it out until your GPS recieves an incoming signal, it's not always going to be instantaneous..

GPS is not working. It says waiting for a valid GPS signal. What can I do to fix this?


Usually, when it's waiting to get a valid GPS signal, it is "listening" (scanning) for satellite signals to establish your current location. If you are in the open outdoors, i.e. not inside a building or under extended covers, it should get the satellite signals within a minute or so.

I just reloaded maps on my Tomtom but I am getting the message'' Waiting fora valid Gps signal regards charlie


That just means that your not in good range of the satellite that the TomTom uses. Think of it like cell phone reception. Try waiting a few minutes or going to a different area. I have the same problem because I live in a forested area, but when I leave and go into town, I'll get a signal.

Waiting for a valid gps signal


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.

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!

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......


check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair

Just says waiting for gps signal


Tom Tom needs comms with GPS satellites orbiting the earth.

Make sure you are outside your home so the GPS can find these signals. Initially it may take up to 5 minutes to make these connections. One the satnav knows where it is, all subsequent connections will be a lot quicker. :)

Some vehicles have windscreens with special coatings which prevent the satnav initialising with GPS satellites. If this is your problem, the only solution is to purchase an external antennae for your satnav. :(

Waiting for a valid gps signal


Make sure you are outdoors. Some buildings are well shielded due to their construction.

If you are not downloading the GPS Quickfix every week then it will take much longer for the unit to acquire satellites. Perhaps as much as five minutes.

If you are outside set in a destination and if you have not got satellites within a few minutes then drive a a few tens of yards and it should suddenly find satellites. Happens to my unit as well.
