SOURCE: Tom Tom XL worked fine and then after stopping for lunch could not find satelite signal the rest of the 200 mile drive.

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.

SOURCE: i am not getting satalite signal on my tom tom xl

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.
Good Luck

perhaps, make sure its fully charged when you try to connect to sats. if it does not connect then the chip has been damaged.

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.

Can't get a satalite signal for tomtom XL


This can happen on rare occasions in very built up areas. Most certainly it can happen indoors.

Using tom tom home from your computer plug your device in and tell it to update. most can now accept the gpsquick fix which will allow tom toms to pick up sats a little quicker

Tom Tom loses GPS reception as I am driving around


Have you hooked your GPS to an internet connected computer lately?

The TomTom home software that comes with the GPS will update so that it knows were the satalites are for the next week. It will also update the software to the latest verson.

You could also try inserting the end of a paperclip in the reset hole on the bottom of the GPS unit.

If all this fails contact TomTom. I have found them very helpfull.

Keeps displaying cannot get valid gps signal was working fine last week now does not work


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.

Try going online at the Tom Tom site and updating the device (it's free). There's a new update each week that tells the Tom Tom where the satellites will be during the coming seven days. Admittedly, this only speeds up the process and not finding a signal for 200 miles is a stretch, but it's worth a try if you don't regularly update.
