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.

Did you make a reset? that could be a trouble with the signal then like the mobile sometimes by retreiving the battery if you have it during a minute and put it on again my brings the solution (pragmatic).

Waiting for valid gps signal


TomTom had issues with the software on several versions of their GPS units. According to their website, it should take no longer than 5 minutes for your unit to acquire a signal. If it it taking longer than this, they recommend 3 possible solutions:
1. Reset your device

2. Install the latest application

3.Install QuickGPSfix

I hope the links help get your GPS working ASAP.
Good luck!

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!

No GPS signal?


I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.
