Quickgpsfix not updating

But if you turn on the receiver at a moment it cannot actually "hear" a satellite, the unit may try the search condition which would have initiated contact with that satellite and fail--moving on to search other frequency/code sequence combinations which don't currently have a satellite, before eventually trying again something close enough to work. If I turn on the Tom Tom once I'm out of the parking garage (and turn it off before I go into the garage), the acquisition times were much better.

I did a bit of testing today, using 3 multi-story public parking garages.

I had actually been syncing with Tom Tom Home to get the latest updates before setting out.

So basically turning on/off while there's a good signal around seems to really help with the acquisition times. I do the same as you, "get updates before setting out." There is no technical reason for a shorter acquisition time, using your parking garage on/off theory. When booting at my desk, 9 out of 10 times my unit will be locked in at the completion of the boot process.

The longer you go between Quickfix updates, the greater the error will be, and the greater the challenge to the GPS in identifying the signals.) With best wishes, - Tom - I had actually been syncing with Tom Tom Home to get the latest updates before setting out.

All the tricks to get faster acquisition (starting with the very basic almanac, moving on to ephemeris, and so on) are just means to start the search at a favorable place.The first issue a Tom Tom user will get is during the device update program.Even though updating and syncing a Tom Tom device is very easy, it has been seen that most of the users don’t have accurate knowledge to complete the process without faltering.The results you report are rather curious, to the point of extreme implausibility.Are you saying that you are receiving signals while you were inside the garage?

Has anybody found that Quick GPS Fix actually results in faster acquisition of satellites? -Steve Has anybody found that Quick GPS Fix actually results in faster acquisition of satellites?
