I switch it off, wait 5 minutes and then switch it back on, leaving it on the dash so it can get a clear "line" to the satellites. Usually this works quite well.

The most common problem to this is because the TomTom doesn't know it's current location. It may be that you last used your device a long distance from where you currently are now. I don't know how long you waited for the gps signal to acquire but it can take up to 10 minutes (even on military aircraft if they don't know current location).
Power it up and press on the signal strength icon. That will bring up your satellite tracking status. If it don't look like it's doing anything, then your gps has probably malfunctioned. If it looks like it's acquiring satellites, then give it a good amount of time (10-15 minutes) to see if it can find your location. I recommend doing it outside of your vehicle with no satellite obstructions to make the process go faster.

SOURCE: Tom Tom One won't find satalites
sounds like a typical TOMTOM!
i would suspect that your battery is not getting charged properly before your trip The DC does not produce sufficient reserves to maintain a full chartge and so from time to time the signal will drop out and as ther battery depletes it gives wrong info and takes you on a journey to the land of the lost. Barc to Lisbon is a long Journey and unless you are charging inbetween stops at your hotel then your battery is very low. Charge it and it should work a lot better.
