    my tomtom keeps saying waiting for a valid signal

  • kjhalang Nov 09, 2008

    The Tom Tom 1 displays the poor GPS reception - are you inside a building note and S and W read 0 00.000

    despite showing 8 satelites above the black line and six of these to the max.

    None of which are turning blue.

    Is this a progeam problem

    We have reset the device and downloaded the latest updates but still no change.

    When the screen is touched with the finger the SW longitude/latitude readings disappear for an instant and return still reading 0

    apart from this tou can see the satelite bars and map on the circle changing, So the device is picking up signal,but the device is not responding or acting on the signal.respponding to these

TOMTOM GO LIVE 2050 problem with TOMTOM Server


Have you been able to get satellite connections (signals) when you're outdoors ? and not under/around tall buildings or overhanging obstructions.
Regularly get QuickGPSfix update (using TomTom HOME) to download the latest satellite positions (for the next 7 days), to enable your GPS to find the satellites quicker.

Why is my gps losing its signal


Try connecting it to the computer and running an update from TomTom Home, there is a GPS fix that might help. Obviously the TomTom needs clearence to see the satalites in the sky otherwise try a hard reset with a pen in the bottom.

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.

Waiting for valid gps signal


The GPS needs at least 3 satellite signals to operate.You are probably in a bad reception area. Move around a bit and try again until you see a signal array of 3 or more!

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......


check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair

Tomtom keeps loosing GPS SIGNAL AND TAKES LONG TIME TO COME BACK


Plug in your tomtom and open my computer. Make note of the driver letter next to the tomtom symbol. Click Start, run (or search on vista or windows 7) and type in "CMD" without quotes and hit enter. a black window will open. type the letter you noted in my computer followed by a colon. Example: F: and press enter.
then type "chkdsk /f" without quotes and press enter. Answer yes to all the following prompts. once completed "takes less than a minute" type exit.

You can also try tomtom backup and then restore.
