My TOMTOM ONE has developed a fault in that it won't find a gps signal. I have tried a reboot by removing the SD card & inserting a paperclip for 15 secs, etc as per TOMTOMs instructions.
I have also tried the tip for resetting by pressing the bottom right side of the screen and switching the unit on.
In both cases the unit is still refusing to find a signal & I'm now lost as to what to try next.
Any help would be gratefully recieved.

it has just lost its satellite link, try resetting your unit by placing a small clip or pin into the hole next to the sd card slot, press and hold for around 15 seconds and restart your unit, it should then fin your position and allow you to carry on
Try to reset it, make sure it is switched off remove the sd card, get a pin or clip and place it in the small reset hole at the bottom of the devise for 15 seconds, then switch the unit back on and replace the sd card and hopefully it should come to life
You might have the switch on SD card set to "read only" , This would stop your tomtom being able to write to the SD card ... hence , " unable to store settings " message . .... OR ... the folder where your tomtom wants to store the settings is corrupted ( on your SD card ) so it can't store them.... or similarly , the file is corrupted on the SD card ( maybe the card is damaged ) so the existing file cannot be overwritten . Check out all these possibilities before suspecting any hardware fault on your tomtom ..... GOOD LUCK
The downloaded maps can be copied direct to the SD card or copied to the SD card via USB lead and PC connected through TomTom Home. Once you have the map on your SD card you will need to activate it with your product code number that you obtained when you purchased the map.
A component fault on the units internal antenna circuit board.
ribbon cable has become detatched inside that connects antenna board with main circuit board.
A software fault.
A component fault on the processor board.
All the above except number 3 will require proffessional investigation. if its a software fault then you may be able to recover data by a re-install through TomTom Home or by recovery backup ( you did make a backup of your SD card , didn't you ? ) of your SD card.
before you start take out sd card. 1 turn tomtom upside down. 2 see reset button? 3 use paper clip to press (press for 15secs) 4 now turn on tomtom (hold power button for approx 5secs. 5 re insert sd card. after a few minutes you should have signal. hope this solves your problem.
