Is this the correct instruction manual?

Page 37, 38, and 39 talk about the requirements to get a gps fix.

Can you receive a GPS signal outside of the car?

The Tomtom devices need to locate GPS satellites in the sky in order to work. Unlike TV satellites, these do not have fixed positions but move relatively to the ground. The Tomtom can locate them by scanning the hemisphere, but this takes up to ten minutes after you switch on the device.

To speed up the process, the Tomtom receivers can use a helper file stored on the device. It holds precomputed positional data for the GPS satellites that makes finding them a matter of a few seconds.

However, the file holds precomputed data for some two weeks in advance only. After this period, the Tomtom device has to resort to the slow scanning procedure.

You will need to connect your Tomtom device to a PC with the "Tomtom HOME" software installed, available from the Tomtom company web site. Use the software by following the onscreen instructions to update the package "QuickGPSFix" at least once every two weeks and you will find your device much more swift in establishing GPS connection.

Note also, all GPS devices require clear view of the sky. They do not work inside buildings, in tunnels, through the roof of the car, and even trees or buildings near to the car may compromise GPS reception. Make sure the device is mounted in an area of the windshield where it can "see" the satellites.
Some cars have metallic a coating on the windows (used for sunlight filtering and "can look outside - can't look inside" fancies). There are reports that these coatings also interfere with GPS receivers' ability to receive the satellite signals.

My tomtom one gps can't get signal

When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.
Please, do the following:
1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. Be sure you choose to update "QuickFix".
Please, report back if you need further assistance

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!
