Usually when you see this it doesn't mean there is a problem with the hardware it means that the data it uses to calculate where it is , is out of date. Usually this happens if you haven;t used it for an extended length of time.

The fix is pretty simple for most devices, you just plug in in to a charger, and do a reset. It just needs to see a few satellites and this reset forces it to download the new data. Once it does that it will work normally again. It can take anywhere from 5 to about 45 minutes to go through the process so you either need good batteries or the charger.

The reset process depends on the gps unit. Some are a menu option while others are a pushing a button and so on. This should be covered in your user manual.Or you can look to the companies support website in the knowledge base on how to reset. Their techs will also be able to tell you how and you should be able to call them toll free or get a email response.

Tomtom wont turn on after chaging it


Reset your TomTom GPS receiver. Some TomTom users report occasional difficulty in getting their TomTom navigation device to start or respond to commands. If this happens to you, remedy the problem by performing a soft reset on your TomTom GPS. A soft reset will reset the data on your TomTom GPS receiver without erasing any data. To reset a TomTom GPS receiver, press and hold the "On/Off" button for 15 seconds or until the device restarts.

Let your TomTom GPS acquire the necessary satellite signals outside. If the device has trouble connecting to the satellite signals necessary for its operation, try an easy fix to the problem. Take your TomTom GPS receiver outside, away from mountains, tall buildings or heavy foliage, where the receiver has a clear view of the sky. Wait for a few moments while the device acquires the necessary satellite signals.

Wont calculat route


sat nav needs a valid gps signal to start calculating route, even if it found entered address. Address is searched on built-in map, not live gps position. That means, sat nav may have problem with gps signal. Try to reset device to its factory settings first. hope this helps
