From inside Tomtom, have you tried "change preferences" then scroll through to "show GPS status" then "configure" select "Other Cable NMEA GPS" select "Done" for GPS baud rate of 4800. Now select "Serial Cable on SP2 and then "Done"
Hope it helps. Philpot

TOMTOM GO LIVE 2050 problem with TOMTOM Server


Have you been able to get satellite connections (signals) when you're outdoors ? and not under/around tall buildings or overhanging obstructions.
Regularly get QuickGPSfix update (using TomTom HOME) to download the latest satellite positions (for the next 7 days), to enable your GPS to find the satellites quicker.

How do I download the updates to my TOMTOM GPS


You use a program from tomtom wesite named tomtom home. Download to pcinstall it then connect device to pc using usb cable. The tomtom home program will list all updates available and install all free ones. Ensure you make a backup first. If you have accidentally selected the flight mode from the menu options this turns off the satelite receiver so check this setting also from the menu you can select the satelite network and see if there is a signal being received and how many satellites it is connecting to. It requires at least three to function and possibly will not work with less than five if there is none then a reinstall of the program will need to be done following instructions from web site on reinstalling the application. You must backup the device first as you cannot download a free map. Follow the website instructions and if there is still no satelite signals being received then its busted. From the main map screen the signal strength may be segn as a small icon like a volume icon. Press this and you also get signal information.

Two year old tom tom xl can take up to 15mins to get a signal any advice


The TomTom device needs to tune in on three or more GPS satelites to find your position. On start, it scans the hemisphere for any satelites and ten minutes and more are not uncommon to establish fixes on them.

The solution is a data package you can download from TomTom servers via the Home software, "QuickGPSFix". It holds precomputed satelite positions for the next few days which speeds up locking to satelites to a few seconds from minutes. However, you need to update the package roughly once a week or the initial delay will pop up again.

My tom tom ONe cannot get a valid Satelite Signal just stays wait


If you are indoors then move outdoors to get a signal.

If you are outdoors then move your location by a few yards and sometimes it will suddenly aquire the satellites.

Happens occasionally with my unit. I normally set a route up then start driving and it suddenly starts to work OK.
