06. Getting GPS Fix
Connecting to GPS
To ensure your device has an accurate GPS fix:
- Leave device near a window or outside to set GPS local position*
- Once you see the GPS icon change, the location accuracy is high and your device is good to go.
Please note, you do not need to perform the GPS fix procedure every time you turn the device on. Just when you first connect in a new location or after the device has been reset.
*The nature of GPS satellites requires some initial time to receive an accurate location. This could take around 15 minutes.
GPS Satellite Diagnostics
If you would like to see a live status of the GPS satellites, you can view the GPS diagnostics page on your device by going to Menu > Diagnostics > GPS
If your GPS doesn't appear to be working as it should do a GPS Signal Quality Test
