If your device has found satellites, a bar

for each satellite is shown in the satellite

information view. The longer the bar, the

stronger the satellite signal. When your

device has received enough data from the

satellite signal to calculate your location,

the colour of the bar changes.
Initially your device must receive signals

from at least four satellites to be able to

calculate your location. When the initial

calculation has been made, it may be

possible to continue calculating your

location with three satellites. However,

the accuracy is generally better when

more satellites are found.
If no satellite signal can be found, consider

the following:

If you are indoors, go outdoors to

receive a better signal.

If you are outdoors, move to a more

open space.

If the weather conditions are bad, the

signal strength may be affected.

Some vehicles have tinted (athermic)

windows, which may block the

satellite signals.

Ensure you do not cover the antenna

with your hand.

Establishing a GPS connection may take

from a couple of seconds to several

minutes. Establishing a GPS connection in

a vehicle may take longer.
The GPS receiver draws its power from the

device battery. Using GPS may drain the

battery faster.
