Hi Dave,

First off, go to your GPS settings. Make the GPR Program Port: COM4. In the Hardware tab, make the GPS Hardware Port COM2 and the Baud Rate 4800. In Access, have the Manage GPS Automatically checked.

Download the VisualGPSce freeware program from this site install and run it. Make sure you're outside (sorry), you should see the to bars filling and after a while the red light in the bottom corner will turn green meaning you have a lock.

Hopefully now when you turn TomTom on, you will have your position shown. I always need to start VisualGPSce before kciking TomTom off.

Mio P550 reboots but does not take any touchscreen inputs


I had the same and contacted MIO (use the phone number for your country,
http://www.mio-tech.be/EN/support/support-overview.php
). It was related to the shock the screen got and they graciously changed it for me (it was during the second year of the warranty). If the warranty has expired, you are probably looking to about a hundred bucks expense.
Courage,

Mio P550 how do i do a hard reset


on/off switch in "off" position for at least 30 seconds, then turn it in "on " position, power on and "reset". You'll lose all your data and all the installed programs.
Alternative: using the screen options, go to "system info", and choose "hard reset".
Beware: pushing the joystick down while doing a reset will get you a boot menu with memory-formatting options. Choose "exit".
Otherwise look into xdadevelopers forum (Google it or go to, say,
Mio P550 / P350 ROM upload [Archive] - xda-developers
)
A good idea would be to backup your data in the first place- just a hint.
Enjoy.
