Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer


It worked fine on my first little test run. Next day I set it to go a greater distance. We got there and I turned off the car, but did not unplug the GPS. When we got back in the car it was totally dead. When we got home I took a paper clip and tied to do a reset but nothing changed.

Re: ONE XL . S

Is the battery not flat maybe... be aware also that you need to hold the power on button for a few seconds sometimes!

Tom Tom One XL - no GPS signal

There are two things you should know.
1) is that the battery must be fully charged in order to connect. The car power is insiufficient to FULLY power the battery. it is maintenance charging.
2) Starting the engine whilst the GPS is plugged to car supply kills the SIIRF chip. Then no connection with satellites is ever possible again.

If you have done this resetting to factory settings or flying into a rage will not fix it

It will require a new motherboard, as chip replacements are uneconomical.

TOMTOM do not advertise that spikes may come from the starting of the engine and claim that a fuse protects it from happening. Well hahaha I have made a living from fixing their boards as a result. It does hap[en and often the fuse is not compromised.

It should ttake the maximum of 9 minutes in some situations to lock on to satellites if the battery is low it can take longer But never hours! A well charged up battery will lock on in an average 2 minsts if outside with a clear view of the sky. there are 20 channels up there so all you need are just 4 for a connection.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Loss of signal

It is most lkely the battery, chane the battery and recharge it. batteries collapse after about 2 -3 years depending on use and abuse. If you have it plugged in when starting the engine the battery will deteriorate quicker and eventuslly fail. resting the battery can cause some charge to return, often sufficient to run it for short periods before it once again fails due to output being greater than the chrging rate.

Lost gps and then found 6 months later and cant remember password

To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot, on the bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on it will be back to it's factory settings.

Tomtom problem

When you turn off the device with power button, you actually set the device in stand by mode, not fully turned off.
This state will drain the battery.

The only way I know to turn device fully off, is to do a reset with paperclip at bottom of device...

Turning on

You may need to keep it plugged in and charged for a few hours before you turn it on again. I ran into a similar issue where there was no juice left in the battery, but after doing a full charge, it worked fine.
