Electrical or magnetic interference.. tall trees or buildings and overhead high voltage will all cause these experiences.

Hi, On a newer Kenworth truck has built in xm radio. Every thing was fine till , near as I can tell, I was waxed the top of the cab. Did not disturb the antenna in anyway, however now when I travel north I...

The signal comes from low in the Southern horizon, so if you have a trailer it is blocking the antenna. You would be best off to buy a special trucker antenna that mounts on your mirror and gets it a little bit higher and away from the trailer blocking the signal from the south when you're driving North. Okay? good Luck.

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.

Tom Tom loses GPS reception as I am driving around

Have you hooked your GPS to an internet connected computer lately?

The TomTom home software that comes with the GPS will update so that it knows were the satalites are for the next week. It will also update the software to the latest verson.

You could also try inserting the end of a paperclip in the reset hole on the bottom of the GPS unit.

If all this fails contact TomTom. I have found them very helpfull.

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.

Electrical Trouble after losing the original keys

the key itself is unique to that serial no, so no duplicates will work .Contact the dealership with the key no. (imprinted on the key )for a key with immobiliser.
i hope this solves your problem.
