SOURCE: Tom tom gps speakers not working.

I have had the same problem. I bought my gps used.I soon found out sound would not come out of the gps untill I taped on the back of the gps. I solved my problem. The voice coil in the speaker becomes detached. Their are 4 screws in the back of the gps once you open up the gps the speaker is attached to the back of the inside of the gps. You have to carefully detach the speaker from the back of the gps ( I used a small flat head screw driver like one from a eye glass repair kit ) then press lightly on the center of the speaker wile the gps is trying to talk (hopefully when you do this the speaker will make noise). I stacked 2 dimes in the center of the housing of the speaker then reatached the speaker to the housing thus sandwitching the 2 dimes between the housing and the center of the speaker. For my unit this put enough pressure on the center of the speaker for the system to work. Then I reassembled the gps. It was about 4 or 5 months ago and the speaker still works fine. Some times the easy solution works just fine.

my tom tom one third edition connects in less than 40 seconds from ca cold start.
first reset everything then connect it to your computer and upload all the needed updates to it( especially the QUICKGPSFIX feature that speeds up the time it takes to connect to satellites.
after that. go outside and wait for the signal to be acquired ( less than 2 minutes)

SOURCE: "Poor GPS Reception" error on iPhone Tom Tom GPS

Unfortunately it appears the iPhone's GPS chip isn't up to much as we've all suspected. Some people can get it working while many are reporting, like you, that they get drop outs and poor signal strength errors. This is happening accross all the iPhone Sat Nav apps so it points the finger at the GPS chip itself, especially as many of these people are stating they have dedicated tomtoms and the like that work fine. I've tried Copilot, tomtom and others on the iPhone 3GS and none are able to keep signal long enough to be any good. In fact they are a complete waste of money. It's no suprise Tomtom are releasing a cradle for the iPhone which includes a seperate more powerful GPS receiver...

Homepatrol scans but does not stop at any signels


Squelch setting set too high perhaps, reduce the squelch until you can hear something, then turn it up slowly until it start to scan again.
Radio Control Bar
The row of buttons across the top of the Main screen lets you fine-tune HomePatrol-1 reception, access Help, and reenter system configuration.
Button
Definition
Squelch
Sets how strong a signal must be before HomePatrol-1 stops on it.
Range
Controls how many channels are selected based on your location and systems' locations. Small range settings result in fewer systems and departments selected. A selection bar lets you set the range in 2-mile increments. Each screen tap is 0.5 miles.
Atten (Attenuation)
Reduces signal interference if you are in an area where there are a lot of radio signals. If Attenuation is set to ON, the status indicator turns red.
GPS
Displays the status of a connected GPS unit.
Help
Displays Help text.
Tap and hold to redo initial setup configuration.

Hope this helps

My GPS that is only about 4 days old works fine sometimes but then it will say "Poor satelite reception" and then "none" what do you recommend?


Do you live in a an area with plenty of tall buildings/trees around you? Do you live in a valley? GPS units need to "see" plenty of clear sky to work reliably.

Does the problem occur the same whether you're using it in the car or on foot? Many modern cars have solar reflective glass which has a microscopic metal coating and it blocks satnav signals unless a supplementary external satnav antenna is fitted.

If you press and hold the nuvi's signal strength bar on the display for a few seconds you'll get a screen which shows how many satellites the unit is picking up along with a display which tells you how accurately the machine has fixed your position. It won't fix your problem but can help you find out what seems to be wrong.

If you're still having problems and these are not the causes then there's no point in doing anything further: just return it to the vendor for a refund or exchange as they are sometimes faulty straight out of the box.

My 265 wt was working fine until 2 days ago


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Erratic behavior is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

Satellite reception is one of the issues addressed in Garmin Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Frozen screen on ''aquiring satelite''


Try resetting the I5. Hold the left button, the wheel button and the power button down at the same time. Keep holding until the screen say that " Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select Yes and then restart the I5.

Lost satellite reception


I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.
