I tried the Chris procedure without success at first. So I do a lot of manipulations (resetting localization, powering off/on the iPod Touch) and suddenly TomTom works ! I tried to lounch Navigon, but then nor Navigon nor TomTom was working.
Now, TomTom works considering that no other applications (Navigon, Meteo,...) are using localization. If TomTom don't receive gps data, I reset Location (see Chris info), lounch TomTom. Then TomTom inform me that he need the authorization for accessing location data, I then go to Parameters/Privacy/Location and I switch ON TomTom Europe (there must be no other application listed otherwise it will not work). Then I switch OFF and ON the iPod on the car kit tool, finally lounch TomTom ... and it is receiving gps data.
There is really a great software problem in the location service of iOS 6. How long to get a patch ?

I also have a GPS fail after upgrading to IOS.
First it worked. But then suddenly, while on the road while using Navigon, GPS got lost and it never came back.
Or not for long. Sometimes it shows GPS conection for a second or two, then it got lost again.
I resetted and restored my iPhone several times but till now with no avail. It's just not working as it should.
And it really ***** because when you buy an GPS app, you it because you need it and use it often/daily.
Not very fair of Apple to neglect their users/customers.
I hope they come up with a descent fix very shortly.

I confirm that I need to power OFF then ON my iPod when mounted on the car kit. Only then the TomTom application is able to receive gps data.

In reply to Danom, I had the same problem at the time I buyed the car kit. It is not related to the iOS 6 problem, it is just a connection problem. I had to fix a square of felt 1 mm thick on top of the car kit so that the iPod is held firmly in place even if I drive on bad roads (connection problem 1). The second problem is due to poor electrical contact of the cigarette lighter socket causing the same symptoms.

Wow, I didn't figure out there was a problem until I was trying to navigate on Lake Ontario using my iPad and Dual GPS receiver, which has always worked flawlessly. I am really pi**ed off about this. I don't know who to blame, Apple or Dual. Anyway, I found a fix that, so far, appears to be working. But Apple and Dual - come up with a permanent fix for this!! For what's its worth, here's what worked for me, which I cut and pasted from a the Foreflight website:
"Go to the main iPad Settings app.
Tap on “Privacy”.
Tap on “Location Services”.
Toggle the top row to “Off”. This will turn off location services for all of your apps.
Reboot your iPad (press-and-hold the top button for 5 seconds, slide the red slider to power off, wait 5 seconds, then press the top button to turn your iPad back on).
Go back to Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services and turn location services to “On” for your iPad. Also make sure that location services are set to “On” for ForeFlight Mobile.
Leave your iPad connected the Internet for a few hours (the screen can be off). This might not be necessary, but we have encountered a few rare cases where this fixed the problem."

I was reading this thread in chronological order and was thinking thymjan had better luck than me, as I did almost exactly the same things, but then you said the GPS wasn't working again suddenly - exactly my experience. The Dual XGPS150A worked for about 1 day after a total reinstall but then the signal was not sent through to other apps. Resetting the "Privacy and Location" settings does work sometimes but I'm still trying to discover a reliable workaround until the bug(s) is fixed.

I have a problem similar to icecros. Non of the suggestions were able to fix it though. I am using an ipod touch 4g along with a dual xgps 150. It worked flawless with all my gps apps (navigon, imap my run, golf card gps...) until I updated to iOS 6. Now non of them work. It does work with the dual gps status tool app, which just shows satellite info, But as soon as I close it out and try to open another app it quits working. This did not happen before the iOS 6 update.

Have you allready updated to iOS 6.0.1? The problem seems to be gone with the update.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2012 5:36 AM (in response to icecros)
I confirm that after updating to iOS 6.0.1 the problem is gone.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2012 6:17 PM (in response to thymjan)
Yes. I am running on iOS 6.0.1 and the problem is not solved.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 15, 2012 6:39 PM (in response to samwalker23)
OK, I shut the ipod off and turned it back on after I did the reset on location services, and it is now working as it should. Hope it continues. Thanks dudes.

The problem is not solved with iOS6.0.1 update. It happens any time a second app uses location services or sometimes it just stops working for no apparent reason. If I turn off location services and reset the iPod it comes back ok for a while. If I am in a built up area the problem is worse because cloud sourced location seems to have priority over the GPSr and is very inaccurate. The is a serious fault in iOS6 - Apple please do something about it!!

Chris, way to go!! I had tried everything, I thought, but didn't think of the location services reset - it worked! Has the bug been sumitted to Apple?
Currently Being ModeratedDec 9, 2012 5:35 AM (in response to icecros)
I've tried everything I could find here and other forums and still no luck...
Currently Being ModeratedDec 11, 2012 9:17 AM (in response to Kris6)
I can confirm the problem is still there with iOS 6.1 Beta 3. I have the same problem and cannot figure out how to fix it.
