TomTom GO630:
  • Works well in our small Peugeot. Worked well last year in our Volvo (inland and abroad). Now: No longer makes contact with satellites in Volvo.
  • Werkt goed in onze kleine Peugeot. Werkte vorig jaar goed in onze Volvo (in binnenland en buitenland). Maakt nu in Volvo geen verbinding meer met satelieten.
Who knows a solution?
Wie weet een oplossing?

Thank you!
Dank u!

    Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ????

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    If possible, for the for the first Satellite fix, go outside with a clear view of the Sky

    Also, Has the Volvo got a Metallized Heat reflecting windscreen, this can kill the satellite signal dead
    Some Cheepo Web Cams have poor RF Shielding, the stray RF can also reduce the satellite signal
    Is the device set low down on the dashboard
