OK Heres what to try.

1) Check the BAUD rate and PORT are set in accordance with the manual
2) the battery is fully Charged ( AC)
3) a clear view of the sky.

If all of those are as they should be then it may be a damaged SIIRF chip which makes it a throw away item. Cheaper to buy a new GPS

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.

I have a Tomtom XL and lately its taken forever to find gps signal, i tried everything like resetting it which works for a bit but then has that problem again. Can someone help. thanks in advance


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.

Keeps losing the gps signal


I went to find a solution in regards to my problem. I saw that most of the solutions were to update my programs on my Tomtom. Works like new again.


Thanks!

Tom tom can't find sats signal


Try standing still outside in an open area. If you still don't get a signal it's probably broken but worth trying a reset - reset button generally underneath the unit needs a paperclip to operate it...

Tom Tom XL worked fine and then after stopping for lunch could not find satelite signal the rest of the 200 mile drive.


Try going online at the Tom Tom site and updating the device (it's free). There's a new update each week that tells the Tom Tom where the satellites will be during the coming seven days. Admittedly, this only speeds up the process and not finding a signal for 200 miles is a stretch, but it's worth a try if you don't regularly update.

Waiting for a vaild GPS signal. three days. been


You essentially have to reset the GPS. You can do this by holding the power button down for at least four seconds to get the Tom Tom to fully shutdown. You will know you successfully did this if you hear the tom tom sound and a warning message appears during startup. It then seems to work just fine after that.

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.
