Question about Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox N520 Pocket PC
I have dificulty getting the pda to locate satellites and sigmals
If you are having a problem with satellite acquisition, thats relatively normal for this unit, the antenna is buried in the thing instead of being exposed. if it is picking up satellites at all, then at least the gps chip and interface is functional. i would recommend buying an external antenna for times when you really need it.
if in the u.k., you can pick one up here
otherwise, do a search on ebay for "loox 520 gps antenna" or "loox 5xx antenna"

Hey man i have the same prob i'll fix it . if u work acc to me and forget other wat they r saying so listen carefully our first step is testing
1. Be sure to disable conflicting software such as Targus Stowaway Keyboard software and any other software which takes over the Today Screen on your Pocket PC.
2. Perform a soft-reset on your Pocket PC.
If you have TeleType GPS Software continue with step 3, if you do not use TeleType software skip to number 4.
3. Activate TeleType GPS software, select Tools>GPS status>Status. Check that the button appears with the word "Close" (that actually indicates that the port is Open, to close the port you would click on the button labeled "Close"). To test whether the port is locked, attempt to toggle from Open to Close and vice versa. If you are unable to toggle the port from Open to Close, you need to soft reset and possibly hard reset your Pocket PC.
4. If you still cannot establish a connection, check to see whether your Pocket PC recognizes the GPS receiver.after doing this

Most GPS systems require a first time boot-up where they scan all registered satellites to determine where in the world they are and what satellites to concentrate their navigational efforts on. Try charging the GPS up entirely, and then doing a hard reset of the system (either by navigating to the hard reset in software or by pressing the tiny reset button usually located on GPS units), and then taking the system out under the open sky and letting it run for half an hour or so, making sure it is running in navigation mode (as opposed to setup or media mode). Once it locks properly onto a small subset of satellites, it should not have much difficulty.
If you continue having problems, check to be certain you are running the latest software on the device which can make a big difference. The latest software for the 520 is here:
