    Hi @milloy360

    Try the following.

    Charge the unit for about 2 hours or do the following whilst the unit has a good charging supply.

    Take the unit outside welll away from buildings and trees etc with a clear view of the sky all around.

    Start the unit and when ready Press and Hokd In the On/Off button for circa 20 seconds plus until you have seen the Tomtom Icon and when you hear the Drumroll sound let the button go.

    Now set a route and when ready lay the unit down and leave until the unit has locked onto the Satellites. Once it has connected the unit should set its clocks.

    Doug
