Well, it MAY help to download the tomtomhome program from the tomtom website, then connect your unit to your computer and update, including the gpsfix application (that's for all the other posters who didn't mention having updated). But for Drakeca05, updating MAY have been what messed you up in the first place. I updated two days ago with tomtomhome--my tomtom one was working fine, but was a little slow to initially acquire satellites. Now since the update it's even slower, sometimes won't acquire them at all, and randomly drops them. Tomtom tech assistance is useless--they just refer you to the standard "acquiring satellites" faq that you can easily find yourself on their site & nothing there is the least bit helpful for this.

i had exactly the same problem, i dont really know how i solved it but first i thought it could be a memory problem slowing the gps signel so i reset the tom tom to factory settings then downloaded the updates from the tom tom home program of corce i lost all my destinations but i didnt want to do a back up just incase one of the updates had a virus or something so if u want to keep them i sugest u write them down first.and then i got a safty pin and pressed the reset button underneath where the memory card goes twice the second time i held it down for about 10 seconds then i looked for updates again from tom tom home. after that in tom tom home there is an option where u can operate your tom tom on your pc so i tryed that and i put in a destination on the pc and clicked on demo tour so i watched the route first it was a bit slow but started to speed up a little. after it had finished i un plugged the sat nav and went for a walk with it around the house soon as i went out side and set a destination it found 6 gps signels,make sure yhe battery is charged to at least half. well i hope anyone who follows my steps gets the same results, thought i lost 200 quid cos i have had it over two years and its only guarenteed for 12 months. well good luck.
