Why is my TomTom not getting a signal?
Signal Delay If you are not receiving a signal, it is possible that the unit simply needs a few more moments. The location icon and driving view will turn gray while the TomTom seeks a signal. Leave the GPS sitting in one location for several minutes so that it can locate the necessary satellites.
To get a proper fix of your location, you need to be in the line of sight of at least 3 GPS satellites. Factors such as weather and location can affect the signal strength, so typically when there is an intense weather condition, your sat nav will probably not work, however, that’s where offline maps come in.
What should I do if my TomTom GPS is not working?
1. Charge the device for a minimum of 2 hours. 2. Take it outside under the clear sky and do a soft reset (Press and hold the on/off button till you hear the drum sounds) 3. In exceptional cases, it could take anything between 30-45 min to find a valid GPS signal.
