My tomtom one 130 will not pick up a valid GPS signal anymore no matter where I am. It just says: "waiting for a valid GPS signal", even when I know that there is, any suggestions?

Install Tomtom Home on your pc and connect your gps on it.Do not update the firmware yet, but ony the "gpsfix" program. If it does not work, try a reset by holding the power button for 15 seconds.Let´´s get in touch

Tomtom one XL


hi, it can take up to 15min to find the gps signal for the first time, also make sure you outside and away from any tall building then just wait and you should find it will come on.

it usually takes about 5min to find signal but the first time it can take up to 15min to find the signal.

you could also go through the menus on the tomtom and find the menu that says gps and click on this and see if it has found any signals from what i can remember it needs to pick up 3 satalites before it starts working properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Tomtom not getting a valid GPS signal. Not picking up any satelitte signals at all.And yes I am outside,and fully charged and keep getting a prompt waiting for a valid GPS Signal.Tomtom is 1 yearand 1...


This is a common issue with TomTom software in general!
To alleviate this issue, Tomtom has released QuickGPS add-on to locate satellites faster. If you have not got it loaded to your device, download the appropriate version of QuickGPS from the TomTom site and make sure you use TomTom Home (connected to the Web and your device) to update both your MAP and QuickGPS on a regular basis.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Can't get any directions, just keeps on saying "waiting for valid GPS signal" been like this all day. Thanks. Ron


charge it up good for a few hours, preferably the usb cord to your computer, then power it on and take it outside in full view of the open sky and let it aquire the satellites (up to 30 minutes)

if that fails, let me know and we can try a reset and update.

Waiting for valid gps signal


The GPS needs at least 3 satellite signals to operate.You are probably in a bad reception area. Move around a bit and try again until you see a signal array of 3 or more!

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......


check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair

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.
