The GPS needs at least 3 satellite signals to operate.You are probably in a bad reception area. Move around a bit and try again until you see a signal array of 3 or more!

SOURCE: My tomtom one 130 will not pick up a valid GPS

Install Tomtom Home on your pc and connect your gps on it.Do not update the firmware yet, but ony the "gpsfix" program. If it does not work, try a reset by holding the power button for 15 seconds.Let´´s get in touch

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.

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......


check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair
