Question about Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox N520 Pocket PC
I have a FS N520 PDA, originally shipped with WM5 in German.
I had many issues with the GPS/Satellite signal, very long time (like an hour…) to get a fix.
I’ve upgraded the device ROM on to WM6 in English.
But I’m still facing the same issue, no satellite signal…
I’ve read a little about it on the net, and followed some forum notes.
I’ve installed the Firmware upgrade for the GPS chip and I’ve installed the recommended software by FS, called GPS locate.
Yet – still NO satellite signal!
The IGO application finds the GPS (configured under COM 8 bound 57600)
Did couple of hard reset (one was needed for the GPS chip firmware update)
I’m loosing my hope, ever to use this GPS PDA.
Any chance any of you guys knows the magic that will make the GPS works?

Under connection settings switch off the "beam" - apparently there is a conflict between the IR beam port and one of the ports used by the GPS system. Has worked for me.

SOURCE: will not fire up a gps signal
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"
