Quickgpsfix not updating
A good rule of thumb is that you should connect at least weekly to get current data.(FWIW, the Quickfix data tells the GPS the current satellite positions, compensating for the drift in their position.YES, getting Quick GPSfix updates makes a difference, even more so, with long spells between uses!! FWIW, I have an office on the ground floor of a 2 story building. In one of the above referenced web sites it says that without preloaded data (like Quick GPSfix) the quickest it can lock on a satelite is 30 seconds, because it needs to acquire the information directly from the satelite.With my GO930 I get a signal very quickly with quickfix, within a few seconds.The longer I go between connecting to TT HOME, the longer it takes.
Also, are your lock on times so long that when starting outside you never got fresh lock on in less time than it takes to exit the garage?All outside test were started in a clear area outside of the garage. Wait 15 minutes, then turn the unit on & record the time to lock on. Results: It made no difference where the unit was turned off or where the unit was turned on.The lock on times were within a second or 2 of each other.All inside tests were started in the center of the garage ground floor.The procedure for these tests was to turn off my gps at the test starting point inside the garage.
