Leave the gps on for at least an hour, letting it search for a signal. From personal experience, I can tell you that some GPS's have problems searching for satalites. It could also be your particular area, in which case there is no solution besides using it somewhere else.

Nuvi 200w will not pick up sattalites


Make sure you are outside and as much in the open as possible. Staying stationary is the best way to insure a satellite signal. Give your GPS a few minutes if necessary to pick up a satellite signal. Also remember poor weather can effect a satellite signal reaching your GPS, just like it will satellite TV.

Roadmate 2000 has suddently started giving me crazy directions. If I followed them, the routes would take me 30 miles out of my way.


  • Check first the signal. Make sure the signal is not weak. Because if the signal is weak normally thats what will happen.

I want to use the gps and navigator on my nokia 5800 can you please help


The Nokia 5800 has a built-in GPS satellite navigation receiver, which can tell you where you are anywhere on the planet. The 5800 also has cell-tower-positioning technology, which finds your location using the position of the nearest phone network mast if a satellite signal is unavailable. GPS is more accurate but can take a while (from 10 seconds to a few minutes, depending on how obstructed the sky is) to find your position ('Assisted GPS' is also present, to download the expected GPS satellite positions from the Internet and help speed up your fix.)
The 5800 also has a built-in mapping application called Nokia Maps, which shows you your location on a street map, tells you exactly how to get to another location by driving or walking, and can give details of nearby amenities such as shops, fuel stations, museums, etc. Nokia Maps uses both GPS and cell tower positioning to tell you where you are: the latter gives an instant rough position, while GPS data is used after the phone has locked onto enough satellite signals calculate its position. You'll know the phone is locked onto a satelite as the lock indicator at the bottom of the screen will turn green.

Other phone applications can also use the GPS receiver if required. For example the camera application can optionally "geotag" photos with your current location using the GPS receiver to work out where you are (click here to see our camera tutorial and find out more about geotagging). If you switch to the standby or menu screens while an application is using the GPS receiver, you'll see a little satellite icon in the top right corner of the screen to indicate that GPS is active.

How does the 5800's GPS work? Like all satellite navigation systems, the 5800 receives signals from many different GPS satellites in the sky, and calculates your position based on those signals, using a combination of triangulation, signal delay calculation and a lot of very heavy maths that you really don't want to know about.

Important Note: Satellite signals cannot penetrate buildings, so GPS satellite signals will be difficult or impossible to receive if you are indoors and away from windows. If you want to speed up the process of GPS showing your location, take the phone outside or place the phone next to a large window with a good view of the sky.

The 5800's GPS aerial is inside the top left side of the phone. If you want to get a good GPS lock make sure this part of the phone is uncovered

I have a Tom Tom One N14644 Ver 8.014 that displays "No valid GPS signal". I used the GPS to get to an address the other night, and now it gives me a map, screen choices, but says waiting for valid GPS...


Same here. I just finished updating software and it still can't get a signal. Could it be something with the TOM TOM satellite network?

I have the same unit and version as you. I notice the problem started yesterday at about 5:00 EST

MY STREET PILOT C330 DOES NOT RECEIVE SIGNAL IN MY 2008 TOYOTA HI


Most likely, the there is something in the construction by shape or dimensions of the vehicle that is attenuating the signal strength. Microwave frequencies such as from satellites can be critical.

If your GPS has an external antenna connection, you can go to a Garmin dealer and get an external antenna kit. This should increase the reception strength.

Just for your interest, the newer models of GPS have improved design of their front end, thus giving better reception. I found this right away when I bought a new GPS.

No signal on new GPS Delphi


Return it to the store. I got one for Christmas and right out of the box it always said "New Route" and would never give me directions. The one I exchanged it for works perfectly.

TOM TOM 910 no gps signal.


If TomTom is stating there's is "No GPS Device" then you don't have TomTom configured properly. You need to set TomTom to use "Other Wired GPS", select 4800 or 9600 bps and set to COM4. Once this is done it should detect the GPS and it will either show you your current position or it will say no valid GPS signal.

Use GPSTest application (search on google or on this website) to test your GPS. It will automatically scan your device, detect the GPS and give you a lock on your current position.

Hope that helps. quote.gif
