The battery is so just change it and all should be well again for a week or so! i am being facetious as TOMTOM are not good products as you can determine by the number on here needing reapir or help for much of the same problems

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.

Loses GPS signal and never reconects. I can be driving along and it loses signal and fails to to regain even if I switch off and on again Aparantly it is poor gps conection so wont connect but this happens...


A few things that cause drop out.

Poor vicinity for a strong signal
A low battery ***** must be fully charged The DC is only maintenance charging and eventually goes flat.
A damaged SIIRF CHIP caused by starting the engine whilst the GPS is plugged in.
A failked fuse to keep battery charged for maintenance in the DC charge unit.

Try recharging battery( or replacing it if 2 years or more of age)

Please rate our help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

My tomtom lost signal today it has not come back.the model i have is tomtom one 125. the blue arrow is not on the correct street.my tomtom is only 6 month old


I am tempted! yes here goes Your signal wont come back, your signal wont come back ( Old Tune of my boomerang wont come back)

It probably wont if the battery is flat , so first try charging bthe battery before turning to map programming. If that doesn't work then expect the worst.... you have damaged the SIIRF chip which is the chip that contacts the satellites
Very expensive to reapair cheaper to buy a new GPS generally
tomtom are notorious for this problem, but most times its caused by user abuse of overcharging or starting the car with the GPS plugged to DC spikes are common even though they dont blow the fuse in the charger plug. Even Mobile phones should be plugged after the engine is started. none of the GPS Distributors othert than one wilkl tell you of this money spinner. Next time aroumd you may want to consider an ALTINA see Marbella Australia and also read their FAQ on caring for your GPS

Keeps displaying cannot get valid gps signal was working fine last week now does not work


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.

Lose of signal


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.

My tom tom signal keeps dropping out for hours


ok my aussie compatriot your problem is mainly the battery not being fully charged on the ac charger, it also needs a clear view of the sky. most tomtoms have an external antenna port mmcx but dont buy thoise cheap 28db units as they are trouble, go to Marbella Australia and get one of their 50Db external mouse antennas and that will help
tremendously. Perhaps dump your tomtom while your at it as they are nothing but trouble. just check the numer of issue son this forum.
check out the A8010 or the super A860 on the marbella site then sell off your tomtom
