Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver
No matter what - Whenever I plug my Tom Tom in it always just "waits for signal" and does not reset to any new location I am in - It always thinks I am at my destination=home.
Any ideas how to get this functioning again?
The waiting for signal message just means it can’t get satellite reception where you are. you most likely need to utlize the Optional external GPS antenna. This is a common problem in the midwest and southwestern states. if this has happened since you bought it. the internal antenna couldve come loose. Which means you may have got a defective unit from the factory. But my guess is you just need to utilize the external antenna.
its like thinking of a cell phone and how some people dont always get a signal. now in gps it needs 3x the signal. with 1/8th of the communications satellites cell phones have.
so as more and more people get tom toms the harder it is for each unit to work, and less signal can be partitioned to your unit at the time of use. where as cell phones only need 2 towers, GPS needs 4 satellites.
