Hi,

There is a possibility that the antenna is defective. Sometimes a factory reboot helps or re-burn of the firmware.

Does the gps on life360 require both internet and satellite to work


It requires Internet to update maps, install corrections, or additional features. It requires the GPS signals transmitted by the satellites to know where it is and where to go.
If you do not want to update the device you need just the GPS signals. However those satellites may be moving about and theirs positions have to be reported to the device otherwise it will take it longer to lock in on the signals, and might even never find the satellites.

TomTom ONR 3RD EDITION no GPS signal when disconnected from HOME


The GPS signal shown on tomtom HOME is a demo and in no way represents the actual funtionalitiy of your GPS unit. The GPS receiver if still not working after you did 'the obvious' needsto be replaced. Workshop repair required

No longer receives GPS signal


Does this unit have an input for an external antenna? If you get/borrow another antenna you could see if it starts working. That might isolate the problem to the antenna.

Can't get a GPS signal for last 24 hrs


I had a similar problem and did solve it with the soft reset (pressing reset button). I have a One XL and there is a small reset button that you push with a paper clip. On the XL 330 you press and hold the on/off button for 15 seconds and the unit should reset.

My symptoms: Would not find a GPS signal. When I looked at the GPS Satellite status (press on the GPS signal strength bars, again on the GPS/battery status) you can see it locking on up to 8 satellites but would still not show a gps signal lock. Normally it only takes 4 satellites to get a gps lock. My other sympton was that when I attached the GPS unit to the computer and operated it with TomTom Home, it worked fine and locked on to the gps signal quickly (even inside my home). But it would never (at least for 30 minute trips) lock on to a gps signal. After doing a reset it began working normally and locked on to a gps signal after finding 4 or more satellite signals.

STOCK IN ONE POSITION


Try a GPS reset, exit navigation, click on setup, click on GPS reset. then restart navigation. check the gps status screen to make sure you are getting signals. if not, you could have a failed antenna or GPS receiver in the unit.

No GPS signal?


I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.
