Sounds like its looking for the map, it did that on my n95 until i put the map in the correct place.

Sounds like it is finding it difficult to find a GPS signal, Perhaps the GPS Configuration is wrong?. Are you indoors?, Does your car have heat reflective windscreen?, Tall Buildings?, Try it outside with a clear view of the sky, It could take several minutes to find a signal, Especially the first time you use it or after a long period with out use.

Here's a link for some user manuals http://www.tomtom.com/support/support.php?ID=3&Language=1

Tomtom uses the either the internal gps (via a working hack :just a prog that interceptes the internal gps and turns it into a "pretend" bluetooth device ) apart from the initial outlay for the app navigating is free although you can choose to have options added which cost.
