Wrong location

You need to update the firmware. The newer firmware will use the satellite for your location.

I have been having trouble with my roadcom sat nav, I used it to get somewhere and had no problems but when I went to turn it on to come home, the main screen comes up but it just freezes and it wont let...

To hard reset the unit turn the unit off, hold down the mode button and turn the unit on. When the unit asks if you want to erase all user data, select yes. After resetting the unit, leave it with a clear view of the sky for about 30 minutes to acquire the satellite almanac. “ Do not worry You don’t loose Your saved rides data, only all screen settings and some other device settings will go away. Set it back to Your preferences and You’re done. Hard reset is suggested after software updates. In my case it heals all self shutdown problems in my Edge 705 GPS.

Can't get a GPS signal for last 24 hrs

I had a similar problem and did solve it with the soft reset (pressing reset button). I have a One XL and there is a small reset button that you push with a paper clip. On the XL 330 you press and hold the on/off button for 15 seconds and the unit should reset.

My symptoms: Would not find a GPS signal. When I looked at the GPS Satellite status (press on the GPS signal strength bars, again on the GPS/battery status) you can see it locking on up to 8 satellites but would still not show a gps signal lock. Normally it only takes 4 satellites to get a gps lock. My other sympton was that when I attached the GPS unit to the computer and operated it with TomTom Home, it worked fine and locked on to the gps signal quickly (even inside my home). But it would never (at least for 30 minute trips) lock on to a gps signal. After doing a reset it began working normally and locked on to a gps signal after finding 4 or more satellite signals.

Too easy..

Click on "WHERE TO?".

Then click on "FAVORITES".

Scroll down until you find "HOME", not the green bar on the top but scroll thru the favorites until you find "HOME" and select it.

Click on "EDIT", then on "DELETE".

Go outside your house, get a good satellite signal and click on "VIEW MAP".

You should zoom in or out according to your preference and click on the vehicle icon, as your are standing outside your house and...that's it! Just click on "YES" and enter the name as Home when it asks you "DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS LOCATION AS A FAVORITE?" You can even change the icon and enter other info...good luck!

First thing ensure that the TomTom is fullly charged using the home charger.
Press the small reset button on the base (700) or do a factory reset.
The other thing to try is tap the GPS signal bars to go to the configure and check in the top right hand corner there is a circle with yellow and black esgments if this is moving then your TomTom is looking for a signal. Move around and you should find that the bars at the bottom will start to move and the small screen on the right will start to indicate circles. When the bars start to move you are getting GPS signals when the bars change to blue there you have a coordination for your position. Some areas are worse than others so move out of your house if after doing above does not get a signal
