My Tom Tom cannot find a GPS signal or sattelite signal. It has been working fine but is no longer able to find a signal or where i am. i have turned it on and off and can navigate through all the pages...


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 www.tomtom.com
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. You choose the ones you want to install.
Please, report back if you need further assistance

Are you INDOORS? GPS do not work indoors. You need to be OUTSIDE.

Also, install TomTom Home in your computer and plug your tomtom to your computer via a USB cable. Update your TomTom and try again

My tomtom worked fine until i updated on tomtom home but now cannot get satellite signal any ideas anyone. I need this for first thing in morning


Reconnect it to your computer and go through the motions. Shut the unit off using the computer. This will disconnect the functions from the computer. This will allow you to use the unitself for navigation. If you shut the unit itself off, when it's plugged into the computer, the computer still has control of it.

When I plug in my Tom Tom 630 to the computer, it says the device is not recognized. It also seems to take longer to access the GPS signal. Any help is appreciated. Freddie


I just called TomTom support, I was instructed to hold the reset button on the bottom of the unit for 15 seconds and then reconnect the GPS to my computer. It worked, TomTom Home opened and I was able to apply the updates.

Can't get a GPS signal for last 24 hrs


I had a similar problem and did solve it with the soft reset (pressing reset button). I have a One XL and there is a small reset button that you push with a paper clip. On the XL 330 you press and hold the on/off button for 15 seconds and the unit should reset.

My symptoms: Would not find a GPS signal. When I looked at the GPS Satellite status (press on the GPS signal strength bars, again on the GPS/battery status) you can see it locking on up to 8 satellites but would still not show a gps signal lock. Normally it only takes 4 satellites to get a gps lock. My other sympton was that when I attached the GPS unit to the computer and operated it with TomTom Home, it worked fine and locked on to the gps signal quickly (even inside my home). But it would never (at least for 30 minute trips) lock on to a gps signal. After doing a reset it began working normally and locked on to a gps signal after finding 4 or more satellite signals.

No GPS signal?


I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.
