Question about GPS

Problem with gps not connecting.

I have downloaded tomtom on my mio 168 and cannot get signal from satellite. any suggestions please.

Help! I have a P550, loaded with Tom Tom 6, unfortunately it will not find the GPS. The current setting is software port = com2 and hardware = com3, 'other nmea' and baud 4800. On these settings I get 'no valid gps signal' but changing the coms about i get 'no gps system' so it seems as if its searching. It runs the original Miomap installation fine, and so the unit itself must be ok. Anyone any ideas please?

    Worked fine one morning, stopped and put in a new destination. It hasn't found a satellite signal since. Have tried restore factory settings and update but no change.

    I was on vacation and the unit worked fine until i got up to leave and come home and the unit couldn't detect a gps signal

    My Sky Caddie has been having trouble finding a satellite. Sometimes it will find it about an hour after I turn it on. I noticed that the signal bars are at the most 2 bars when it is found.

    The last two times I have played golf it never found the satellite. I have reset the GPS many times and it still does not work.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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.

Why tomtom always say to me that my device is not connect


When the GPS device is not able to receive (more than 3 or 4) satellite signals, it will continue to search. This may take a while ... or if you're indoors or under cover of some (solid) obstructions, it may not happen. So, make sure you have clear views of the skies when you are trying to get satellite signals.
Consider regularly updating the GPSQuickFix file (by connecting your GPS using TomTom HOME) to download the positions of the satellites (over the next 7 days). It may help.

No gps signal on my mio digiwalker 168


Please try and reset the unit , check for fault in the settings . You can also remove the power and try a long reset and if after the boot there is no detection it is best to seek assistance specially if the unit is new as you can avail of free replacement warranty.

My tomtom one gps can't get signal


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.
Please, do the following:
1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. Be sure you choose to update "QuickFix".
Please, report back if you need further assistance

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
