I have a Tom Tom One N14644 Ver 8.014 that displays "No valid GPS signal". I used the GPS to get to an address the other night, and now it gives me a map, screen choices, but says waiting for valid GPS...


Same here. I just finished updating software and it still can't get a signal. Could it be something with the TOM TOM satellite network?

I have the same unit and version as you. I notice the problem started yesterday at about 5:00 EST

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.

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. :(
