Try this .........
Conect the Go to your computer and use Explorer to browse the contents of the TomTom memory (it will show up as a new drive).
Delete anything in the "ephem" folder on the unit. (Leave the folder itself alone)
Then, on your PC itself, go to:
c:\documents and settings\yourname\my documents\TomTom\Home\Downloads\Complete\ephemeris \
and delete anything found in there (probably several sub-folders - delete them all)
Run TomTom "Home" and a new QuickGPSfix file should be offered. Install it.
Disconnect the Go properly from Home using the Device Disconnect icon, before unplugging it.

martin, your advice does NOT work for that model since the user has no access to the file system.

I am also having the same problem with my Start 20. I have to perform a restart every time my device is closed down.
I need to update my version from 126.96.36.1990 to the latest but when I use MyTomTom it tells me my device is up to date I have contacted support several times but this issue is still not resolved. I have tried everything recommended. But no joy. I think I have now been deserted by the support team having had no reply to my last 2 update on the system.

YOU TOM TOM F..RS .....have jsut spent hours of my sunday evening ' reasearching' how to fix this,
after getting lost in the a- hole of johannesburg, a foreign city full of murderers and peopel who kill you for a chaep cell phone. I WAS THINKING I WOULD LIKE TO MEET THE MANUFACTUERERS OF TOMTOM AND DROP THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF JHB AT NIGHT...
i am so mad at the manufactueres of this crock of sh1t . Waiting for valid GPS Signal - appears to be a problem everyone that was fooled into not buying GARMIN.
it is such a common prblem , WHY does TOMTOM not offer PRODUCTIVE, EASY TO FIND S-O-L-U-T-I-O-N-S ON THEIR WEBSITE , LIKE ON THE FRONT PAGE............ TOM TOM is substandard JUNK....... BUY GARMIN.....
