Question about Tomtom GO GPS Receiver
Try resetting the unit (paperclip in the small hole on the bottom).
Make sure the software is fully updated (Tom Tom Home from your computer).
Does the unit pick up a satellite when it's outside your car, but not when inside the car? If so, you may need the optional antenna

Cannot get a valid GPS signal=
not fully charged on AC charger
not right baud rate or port
antenna disconnected inside unit
Burned SIIRF chip ( from plugging in to car power when starting engine)
Try charging the unit fully first......
rare for antenna to become disconnecetd unless dropped or opened.
baudrate and port can often be found automatically in GPS settings
Burned Chip requires a full Motherboard replacement Might as well buy a new GPS cost exceeds value.

hi you need to reset the unit at the back near the connection there is a small button that needs to be held down when holding the power button on for a few seconds. once you have done this turn it on and it will work fine

Go to TomTom Home on your computer and do a update for your unit. In the update list you should see a GPS quick fix which helps the TomTom's aquire a signal faster. Hope this helps.
