VIA 1500 GPS Signal

My GPS Signal is awful and my TomTom has become useless. Over more than a year now, every time I've done an update I lose my GPS signal, so I factory reset it and then it seems to work fine except that I don't have an updated map. So for the past 4 months now after getting my latest map update which always has a "quick gps fix" the GPS doesn't work or it works for a few moments and "looking for a valid gps signal" continues to appear on my screen. I've now brought it inside my house 5 times in the past 2 weeks as there is a new "quick gps fix" and each time it either doesn't work when I put it back in my car or it works for an extremely short time and then back to looking for a gps signal. Clearly it is TomTom that is having issues because why would it keep offering a "quick gps fix"? I end up using my phone for GPS navigation which is frustrating because I like to use my phone for music or audible book listening and makes it difficult if I'm trying to use it for GPS too. I thought TomTom was supposed to be a great brand for navigation systems? I've been looking to upgrade to get one with bluetooth so I guess Garmin will be getting my money for my next purchase if TomTom can't get there GPS under control.
