Re: Device keeps losing GPS signal

Hi,

 

It sounds as if there may be an error with the GPS itself within the device.

 

Just in case, and to ensure it is not software related, would it be possible to reset first (this is done by pushing a paperclip in the reset hole for 15 seconds) and see if this helps and perhaps even uninstall and reinstall the software?

 

There are some instructions listed here to do this: http://www.tomtom.com/1898
