A few things that cause drop out.

Poor vicinity for a strong signal
A low battery ***** must be fully charged The DC is only maintenance charging and eventually goes flat.
A damaged SIIRF CHIP caused by starting the engine whilst the GPS is plugged in.
A failked fuse to keep battery charged for maintenance in the DC charge unit.

Try recharging battery( or replacing it if 2 years or more of age)

If you are getting power from the cigarette lighter socket for the GPS unit you loose power when you switch the engine off. If that is the case find a power line that has power all the time and hook into it to give permanent power to the GPS

The drive is failing. That is why a fresh install is failing. You could boot to the Windows CD and repair your installation but, even if it works, it won't be long before the drive loses more data and send you back to the blue screen of death. Ditch the drive, it can't be trusted.

My imac loses its wireless connection, regains it, loses it, regains it.... I'm assuming the airport card has begun to malfunction. Looking for a replacement card.


There is a function for the airport called "robustness". you can enable it in the icon in the upper-right of the screen. It looks like a wi-fi signal icon. Click there, then click on "connection robustness" I think it is called. I am pretty sure that will work, unless the signal is just too weak, and that could be the reason it falls off frequently. If that doesn't work for you, I am in Colusa, and have 2 extra airport cards I am selling for $5 each. Good luck.

Tom Tom loses GPS reception as I am driving around


Have you hooked your GPS to an internet connected computer lately?

The TomTom home software that comes with the GPS will update so that it knows were the satalites are for the next week. It will also update the software to the latest verson.

You could also try inserting the end of a paperclip in the reset hole on the bottom of the GPS unit.

If all this fails contact TomTom. I have found them very helpfull.
