Question about Tomtom GPS
Usually, after you turn on the GPS device, it may take a minute or so to start up and lock into the satellite signals. While it is waiting to get a valid GPS signal, it is "listening" (scanning) for satellite signals to establish your current location.
If you are in the open outdoors, i.e. not inside a building or under extended covers, it should get the satellite signals within a minute or so.
If you still can't get a GPS signal, consider shutting it down ... using a "hard" shut-down (hold down the on/off button for 5 seconds or more ... to re-boot the system/software programs. Then, wait a while before starting it up again. Make sure your device is plugged in and/or the battery is NOT low when you're doing this.
