Could try resetting it. In the docking bay on the back of the unit you will see a small indent in the moulding by the connectors. At the bottom of that there is a tiny reset button that will require a pin to push it. It's not immediately visible so you will have to look carefully. Once reset, it may (only may) speed up the satellite signal. This rest button can also be used for when the screen freezes which is what happened to mine.
Hope this assists.

710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen


1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

Whereas:
GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

I HAVE A TOM TTOM GO 710...DOES IT NEED A SIM CARD


yes, the tomtom 710 needs the sd card which has the maps on it. if you just bought it and didnt get one with it, i suggest you take it back, because the cost of the card often out weights the value of the gps.

if you want to buy a sd card for it, you can get one HERE on the tomtom site or you might want to try ebay.com which sometimes they have them...i just checked ebay for you and currently there are none listed.

Takes 3 minutes to turn on, then is ok finding a signal


Its not uncommon for some GPS to take a while to "warm up"

Check the tom tom site as some tom toms have a quick sat finder update. If you use tom tom home on your computer it usually has an UPDATE option where it will go online and get any fixes etc for your device.

Even then you may still see over a minute or so to boot up.

My Tom Tom One takes a long time to pick up a GPS signal (30 to 45 minutes)


You might want to try updating your TomTom through TomTom Home. It loads something called "QuickFix" onto the TomTom, which I guess tells the TomTom where GPS satellites are going to be. I get a fix in about 5-15 seconds if I keep this updated, otherwise it takes a few minutes.

Poor gps reception on tom tom one


my tom tom one third edition connects in less than 40 seconds from ca cold start.
first reset everything then connect it to your computer and upload all the needed updates to it( especially the QUICKGPSFIX feature that speeds up the time it takes to connect to satellites.
after that. go outside and wait for the signal to be acquired ( less than 2 minutes)
