A few resons that a GPS will give this message. The first is just like it says.. are u in a concrete canyon expecting satellite connection?

The other is insufficient charge to the battery, it should be fully charged via the AC adaptor or the USB connection on the Laptop. Depending on age and number of recharges it may be that the battery is soggy and needs replacing. Only you, know that information.

Also a warning do not plug it into catr power and then start the engine, you will damage the IC chip and then it will never work again until you throw lots of money at it.

Poor gps


My friend, this is the first time I have seen your question. Please understand, the people on this side of the counter are not employees of FixYa.com. We are a gaggle of volunteers working from our homes and offices, for free. I have never actually seen another volunteer worker associated with this web site.

I say all that to explain I don't have any history on your question...

If your GPS says you are in a building ... it is being nice when it says that. It is redally telling you it has no, little or poor signal reception. You can be outside and still not have a clear view of the sky. Your GPS wants a unobstructed view to find the signals from above. Other buildings, trees, etc. in the area can prevent this view.

If you are out in a field, for example, and it still tells you this - you should be asking Tomtom what to do. There is probably something they can do to help your signal reception. You could have a antenna or battery issue.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

"Poor GPS Reception" error on iPhone Tom Tom GPS


Unfortunately it appears the iPhone's GPS chip isn't up to much as we've all suspected. Some people can get it working while many are reporting, like you, that they get drop outs and poor signal strength errors. This is happening accross all the iPhone Sat Nav apps so it points the finger at the GPS chip itself, especially as many of these people are stating they have dedicated tomtoms and the like that work fine. I've tried Copilot, tomtom and others on the iPhone 3GS and none are able to keep signal long enough to be any good. In fact they are a complete waste of money. It's no suprise Tomtom are releasing a cradle for the iPhone which includes a seperate more powerful GPS receiver...

My new TomTom One XL will not pick up a GPS signal.


Well, it MAY help to download the tomtomhome program from the tomtom website, then connect your unit to your computer and update, including the gpsfix application (that's for all the other posters who didn't mention having updated). But for Drakeca05, updating MAY have been what messed you up in the first place. I updated two days ago with tomtomhome--my tomtom one was working fine, but was a little slow to initially acquire satellites. Now since the update it's even slower, sometimes won't acquire them at all, and randomly drops them. Tomtom tech assistance is useless--they just refer you to the standard "acquiring satellites" faq that you can easily find yourself on their site & nothing there is the least bit helpful for this.

Lost satellite reception


I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.
