Waiting for a valid gps signal


A couple solutions:

1) Make sure the TomTom can "see" the sky well... the GPS satellite waves are rather weak and easily blocked by trees, and anything not a window.

2) Hook up your TomTom to the computer (see details at www.tomtom.com or in the manual)

2b) Do a "sync" and download all updates. One of the updates is a small file that tells the TomTom where the satellites are located this week, and helps it sync up much faster. The longer time between uses, the longer it takes TomTom to find the satellites, and that can takes up to 2-5 minutes sometimes.

That can be frustrating with a car full of people waiting to get going and the driver doesn't want to drive without making sure the TomTom works and is giving valid directions.

Tom Tom sat nav takes ages to get a GPS signal now.


Think I have sorted the problem out. I read some of your readers' solutions and it was mentioned that it may be advisable to log onto the GPS update. So, I installed my disc which came with the pack and followed the instructions to download the GPS update (and also took the opportunity to download other updates which took some time). Anyway, used the sat nav this morning and so far, it appears to be working normally now and the signal comes on in seconds!

My TomTom One-125 GPS is constantly displaying the error message. Cannot find valid GPS signal.


Mine did the same thing after running a map update on it. The most recent update using TomTom Home (last week) fixed it.

Internet problems


question? is it buffering to 01% then stalls before you get this message? If so, i have had the same problem, but my Viewty corrected itself after having the problem for about a week. My best advice would be to wait it out. I hope this comforts you
