SOURCE: i am not getting satalite signal on my tom tom xl

The most common problem to this is because the TomTom doesn't know it's current location.  It may be that you last used your device a long distance from where you currently are now.  I don't know how long you waited for the gps signal to acquire but it can take up to 10 minutes (even on military aircraft if they don't know current location).  
Power it up and press on the signal strength icon.  That will bring up your satellite tracking status.  If it don't look like it's doing anything, then your gps has probably malfunctioned.  If it looks like it's acquiring satellites, then give it a good amount of time (10-15 minutes) to see if it can find your location.  I recommend doing it outside of your vehicle with no satellite obstructions to make the process go faster.
Good Luck

SOURCE: My HTC TyTN II GPS

I Got it!
I finally got my HTC TyTN II yesterday from Dubai.
First thing I wanted to test was the GPS. It did not work with: TomTom6, Google Maps, Yahoo Go.)
I was surfing around to find something that would help me out and have noticed that many people have the same problem.
Many people (Like me) did not know howe to setup the GPS.
Many people are saying: "You have to put it your GPS settings in Com 4 and the Baud rate on 4800 and it should work.
Well mine didn't work with those settings. (Along with other people.)
I had played with the External GPS option (Don't do this cause setting something wrongm ay cost you a HARD-Reset.)
I Was lucky that mine worked again after a SOFT-Reset. So watch out!
The standard GPS settings! (If you have changed it, Soft-reset your phone and set it up as these pictures show.)
display1sq8.jpg display2ei6.jpg display3tc2.jpg display4zi4.jpg
Why am I doing this?
People buy this phone to make use of it. When something does not work why buy the phone then :S
Hope that this may help a lot of people on here and other forums, communitys & websites.

Here is my story of how I did get my GPS to work:
1. Download the GPS addresses by using QuickGPS (Start -> Programs -> QuickGPS).
(This will download info of what your GPS Reciver needs to connect to the satalites.)
2. Download a free (Well half free, You can also buy this application it will give you some extra options, but we don't need those extra options.) tool named: GPS Test. (http://www.smartphone.net/software_detail.asp?id=3170 or at http://www.pocketpc-software-downloads.com/software/t-free-pocketpc-gps-test-download-uykfcoyy.html)
(This program will scan all your mobiles com ports and Baud rates, To see what your real GPS settings are.
In my case they were: COM PORT: 4 - Baud Rate: 9600 (Notice it ain't 4800. Usaly it shows your settings with a pop-up.
When It doesn't Go to "Menu -> GPS Settings", There it will show you you're GPS settings.)
3. Install TomTom 64. Download your free map.
5. Go to the GPS settings.
(Set-up: Other NMEA GPS-Reciver -> GPS-Baud Rate -> Com. (Select the Baud rate + Com port from what the GPS Test did show you.)
6. Now wait.

SOURCE: I have a TOM TOM one XL GPS and it will not power

If you where having difficulty with the on/off button, it sounds like the microswitch under the plastic. Unless you can do micro soldering you can not fix this yourself. You should get a quote from tomtom.

If it needs to be charged for 2 hours will it run down your car battery???


mostly they only suggest charging it for extended periods of time the first time you charge it because it comes dead after that the lighter port in your vehicle should be giving off way more than needed to keep the lil guy running i have used a tom tom for years now and have never had a problem with excessive drain on my electrical system

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

Waiting for a valid gps signal


A couple solutions:

1) Make sure the TomTom can "see" the sky well... the GPS satellite waves are rather weak and easily blocked by trees, and anything not a window.

2) Hook up your TomTom to the computer (see details at www.tomtom.com or in the manual)

2b) Do a "sync" and download all updates. One of the updates is a small file that tells the TomTom where the satellites are located this week, and helps it sync up much faster. The longer time between uses, the longer it takes TomTom to find the satellites, and that can takes up to 2-5 minutes sometimes.

That can be frustrating with a car full of people waiting to get going and the driver doesn't want to drive without making sure the TomTom works and is giving valid directions.
