Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver
Hi. I just purchased a GO 910, took it out of the box, mounted it in the windshield of my truck, switched it on, went through the setup, and it all worked fine till it started searching for satellites. I left it searching for about 2hrs, nad there's a message in the bottom LH corner saying "Lost GPS satellites 2.30 ago". If I tap the screen, the message says "poor GPS satellite reception - are you inside a building", and the truck is sitting outside. What else can I try?
Please let me know ASAP.

Take the Tomtom outside the car and see if it can acquire a satellite fix. You could have an athermic windshield. An athermic windshield is used to reflect heat waves from entering the vehicule, which will also prevent GPS signal from passing through. If you do have an athermic windshield then you will have to use an external aerial.
