No GPS signal

Ok Marilyn,

Thanks for the info. Your device has no dedicated reset button like some other Tom-Tom units, but it still can be reset.

To perform a reset, make sure that the unit has a fully charged battery. Charge for several hours if unsure - and make sure the charging light comes on (if it doesn't - it will probably need service) while connected.

Disconnect from charger.

Press the On/Off button to turn the unit on (if not already on) and allow it to start up as usual.

Press AND hold the On/Off button for up to 15 seconds or until the unit turns off.

The GPS should now be reset, and should work as expected when you next turn it on. Good luck!

I have a 1475 Magellan GPS which will not acquire the signal. My unit was on for over four hours last night, trying to acquire the satellite signal. How do I solve this problem?

I can understand the problem in the unit, so to over come this problem you have to reset the unit .When you reset the unit surely the unit will it acquire the satellite signal also it show your current location.Follow the steps to reset the unit :
On the left hand side at the lower bottom coner you can see a small pin hole there named as reset .Just insert a paper clip in to the hole when the unit is on.this is the way to reset the unit......

Will the garmin etrx legend gps reciever led me to cordinates

Yes, the etrex will be able to lead you to cordinates. All you need to do is to set the cordinates and it will lead you straight to it.

The 5th digit the cordinates N & W WILL NOT LET ME PICK ANUMBER 6

You need to make sure your unit is set for decimal degrees. It's probably set for a different format.

My x3-t navigation system GPS freezes up

On most gps's that means it is time to reset the unit. This should force it to reload the sattilite catalog information and it should start working. Depending on the unit it can take up to an hour before it it works after rebooting while other new ones do it in a few miutes at most.

I believe this unit has a reset hole on the back so just insert somethign like a toothpick and reset it. Then place it where it can get a signal and let it do its thing. Should behave after that.

Can't get a GPS signal for last 24 hrs

I had a similar problem and did solve it with the soft reset (pressing reset button). I have a One XL and there is a small reset button that you push with a paper clip. On the XL 330 you press and hold the on/off button for 15 seconds and the unit should reset.

My symptoms: Would not find a GPS signal. When I looked at the GPS Satellite status (press on the GPS signal strength bars, again on the GPS/battery status) you can see it locking on up to 8 satellites but would still not show a gps signal lock. Normally it only takes 4 satellites to get a gps lock. My other sympton was that when I attached the GPS unit to the computer and operated it with TomTom Home, it worked fine and locked on to the gps signal quickly (even inside my home). But it would never (at least for 30 minute trips) lock on to a gps signal. After doing a reset it began working normally and locked on to a gps signal after finding 4 or more satellite signals.

Cant find how to manually input cordinates

First create a waypoint, and then modify it. Hold down the enter button for two seconds (the thumb-toggle on the face of the unit). This opens a screen with a number at the top and coordinates of your current location below. Once you've grabbed the coordinates you can change the name and the coordinates and the name and save it as a waypoint. Use the thumb-toggle to bring up number pads and letter pads for each line.

Cannot find gps cordinates

Actually some GPS units do not show coordinates. Make sure you have one that does. A lot of the early Garmin units didn't have coordinates or a way to enter new ones.

Try a GPS reset, exit navigation, click on setup, click on GPS reset. then restart navigation. check the gps status screen to make sure you are getting signals. if not, you could have a failed antenna or GPS receiver in the unit.

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.
