    Angry TomTom Sat Nav Probs

    Sorry if this has already been raised but has anyone else experienced problems lately with their tomtoms?
    I have the live via 120 and it doesn't seem to be able to connect with any satellites, just says " waiting for GPS signal". I have read that there has been issues regarding the firmware of some models, in relation to a "leap year bug" so I have tried to install their "fix" update but to no avail!!
    Its only 8 months old, cost me £200 and Curry's/PC World have been less than helpful, even when presented with the till receipt and original packaging. Not amused!!

    Our tomtom is very old now - it's a 510 but has no problems locking on to satellites after I update it. It takes no more than 20 seconds even in the house.

    Have you tried the pocket gps site to see if anyone else is having the same problem?
