My tom tom says no gps signal for the last two weeks. How do I fix this.


Did anything change in your environment (new car?) two weeks ago?

What happened immediately before you lost signal?

Is everything else working okay on the unit?

Have you updated everything with Tom Tom Home?

Have you tried resetting the unit (paperclip in the small hole on the bottom of the navigator)?

Have you tried resetting factory defaults? (Menu item under Change Preferences; you need to Show All Menu Items to see this one.)

BTW, nobody's satellite got hit by anything.

To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay).
Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.

Tom tom no responce


The reset button on this unit is on the back at the top right as you turn the unit around. It is a very small hole. You must insert a paperclip or pin into this hole to reset the unit.

Tom tom go 720


I have exactly the same problem. Everything worked fine until I did a software upgrade. I have tried the reset suggestion but it has not fixed the problem. I have been told that a possible solution is to install the version of the OS that was there prior to the upgrade but I cannot find this anywhere

GPS Won't Turn On


If its a battery problem the unit still works while charging!

If not it sounds like the OS or SD card has become corrupt.

you'll have to wipe both clean & start again...

tomtom will talk you through this either via an email or on the phone.

Switch on


Have you tried resetting the unit? There is a small reset button on the back at the top. Put a small pin or a paperclip in the button, and press it for a few seconds. This should reset the unit.
