I recently purchased the tom tom navagator with a toshiba E350 pocket PC. Whenever I try to get a signal it always takes 20 minutes if not longer. The in car antenna I'm am using is the tomtom antenna I got in the package. Now the instructions booklet states that it should take a few seconds.   



Can anyone offer any help or advice?

I don't think it has anything to do with the windscreen as I use it in older vehicles and sometimes I get 5 satellites picked up.



Now my problem seems to have worsened. I receive no signal from the GPS receiver. The light on the receiver flicker on and off as usual but the GPS status page is showing nothing.

Your help will be much appreciated!

It should take around 50 seconds to acquire a fix, but make sure you are stationary and you have a clear view of the sky. Either driving or parked up in a garage will be of no use.



What car are you using ? What happens if you take the Leadtek mouse (the GPS Receiver) and place it on top of the car, do you get a satellite fix quickly ?
