This is not always an easy fix.
one has to know whether you are trying to run a GPS in a city that is overshadowed with trall buildings, a forrest like set of streets where trees overhang and obscure the sky.
Then there is the low battery level that can cause loss or no signal, or the windscreen that is so sloped it does not allow sky view.
Some cars have other electronics installed that cause interference, finally the GPS itself.. TOMTOM, one of the worst GPS on the market for failoure. and problems. Just trawl through FIXYA and see the number of TOMTOM requests for help there are to any other brand

here are some solutions.

make sure battery is fully charged on AC charger before usinjg. connect it to DC car power after engin hjass been started to prevent spike damage to chip.

fit an external mouse antenna, not the cheap and nasty types thyat only raise 28 decibels
contact Marbella Australia for their 50Decibel antenna its the best on the market and only available from them . .
place Gps closer to your windscreen for a better view of the sky.
keep away from other electronics like mobile phone radio etc to see if it works better.

First off, there are way more TomTom questions on here because there are 10 times the amount of TomToms sold around the world compared to any other company. Therefore, if you have 10 millions units sold compared to 1 millions, you will have more problems. The ratio of problems to units sold is lower than the other companies you will see if you research

Why is my gps losing its signal


Try connecting it to the computer and running an update from TomTom Home, there is a GPS fix that might help. Obviously the TomTom needs clearence to see the satalites in the sky otherwise try a hard reset with a pen in the bottom.
