Default Re: 9790 - poor GPS performance - is it only me?

Remember, for GPS to work properly, you need to be outside with a clear view of the sky for it to get a good location fix.

If it has been 7 or more days since you last used GPS, the device needs to download the ephemeris table first so it knows where to look for which satellites.

If you have moved a considerable distance from the last use, it also takes a few minutes to locate the satellites and determine your position.
