Now and then I use TomTom Navigator 7.910 program on my PPC with an external
receiver. I don't use it daily but I'll test it again asap wether it is
affected by the described problem.

Some years ago my GO300 needed a repair which was carried out by TomTom in
the UK - just go to Support on the TomTom Home site.

why did you cross post in to a different forum about the same issue?
 

 
If you can't understand the picture, you probably shouldn't be under the hood of a car.
