Question about Tomtom One Europe v2 GPS Receiver

TomTom One GPS fault

I've had my TomTom since Sep 07. After a couple of months it became really slow when starting up and a few weeks later stopped searching for satellites. To get it to search for satellites I have to restore factory settings and reset (this doesn't always work either). Have sent it back to TomTom once nad they returned it saying there's nothing wrong with the device. A colleague has the same model bought around the same time and his takes approx 30 secs to start and a further minute to find satellites (I can drive from Kent to Derbyshire and stil not find a single satellite). And no I don't have an aethermic windscreen. Since TomTom can't find a fault what do I do (other than buy another sat nav)?

    i have had the same problem, my tomtom 910 worked fine, then all of a sudden started slowing down, then no satalite signals at all, screen turned gray, i can still make phone calls through it, says signal lost however many secs/ minutes ago, called tomtom a few months back, they suggested quickfix didnt work, also searching for satalites, for days.. that never worked, they said it was out of warrenty and wouldnt help me further. i asked if i could send it in for repair and i would pay the fee / bill. they said they do not fix tomtom gps units. i said i wondered if garman has better customer service and stands behinds their products? these are not cheap and hardly affordable if they have to be replaced every year or two. thumbs down tomtom

I would send it back to tomtom again and tell them it is definatly not finding satellites. Hopefully they will find the fault this time. if you prefer not to send it to tomtom but have it checked somewhere else , then maybe you can search online with google as I know there are at least 3 places to have it looked at but I won't mention them here as its not a forum for advertising. There are several reasons why its not picking up sats but there are 3 most likely causes. A/ Contact with top antenna board has become broken / unplugged ~ tomtom one and one V2. - B/ Ribbon cable has become unplugged ~ tomtom Go - C/ software faulty or faulty sd card . ......... Most likely cause is faulty file on SD card .

TRY RESET.
My TomTom One XL just stopped navigating one day, at the same location, same windscreen where it was working the day before. It was detecting satellites, some with full strength, but displaying "Poor GPS reception - are you inside a building?" It didn't help to switch it on and off, update the software, run Quickfix, leave it under an unobstructed sky for hours...
Finally the CD driver-like, hardware RESET button did the trick. The TomTom started working in one minute.

SOURCE: TomTom One GPS fault

I had the same problem after downloading the latest maps, the unit was slow to boot up and would not find any satelites. I had no response from e-mails to Tom tom tech support and I was going to give up and buy a new device if this fix failed. I had tried paper clip resets and resetting to factory settings but they had not worked.

After reading the previous answer to this link I searched Tom tom support for 'clear flash' and the search results were more useful than the FAQ on the normal support pages.

I used Tom tom home to uninstall the current software application and then reinstalled the latest version (I had to go through several updates as my version of the software was from when I purchased the unit in 2007), I then downloaded and ran Clear flash and made sure that I disconnected the tom tom from my PC using the correct procedure (using the eject button in the bottom of the tom tom home screen as I read that this could have contributed to the problem in the first place).

After another reset the device came to life and after a few minutes searching for satelites outside the device worked as it should (try checking the configure GPS option if it is taking a while to find a signal, it could be just me but it seems to speed up the search process).

Hope this helps.

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks


Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.
