Tip & How-To about GPS
If your GPS can't get a lock on the current position or find GPS satellites....
a) For TomTom only: Be sure you have the latest "QuickFix" update installed in your GPS. It helps to get a lock on GPS satellites much faster (within 15 seconds, instead of several minutes).
b) Be sure you're outside of any building. Most GPS don't work at all inside (with exception of TomTom and only if you have the latest QuickFix installed and you are within 10 ft. of a window).
c) Tall buildings can make difficult for a GPS to lock on the satellites. If you're in the middle of tall buildings (on the street), move to more open space (like a park or an intersection with shorter buildings).
d) Try resetting your GPS. Most GPS have a "RESET" button (TomTom GPS's have it on the bottom). Resetting your GPS may help it get a lock on its current position.
