Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I had my Tom Tom and it worked fine. After playing about with it and looking at all the functions, i did something and now i don't have a GPS signal. My Tom Tom won't work without it. How can i get my signal back??
I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.

If you still don't have a signal after updating firmware, hard reset, reset to factory settings etc., chances are the internal GPS antenna in your TomTom has failed. If your unit has an external GPS antenna jack, for example the TomTom One series1 units, the solution is to purchase an external GPS antenna. You can find several models in specialized stores and eBay, from both noname and major brands (for example the Sony VCA-42 works with the TomTom One series1). Make sure the antenna you purchase has the right connector for your device - also, try purchasing in a regular store first, so you can return it in case it doesn't fix your problem. It fixed my 'No GPS signal' on my TomTom One series1.
