    Gps takes way to long to catch signal???

    Im using the latest version of IG and Im using this gps

    For some reason it takes more then 5 min to catch a signal. Im powering the gps reciever from a powerd usb and i have it mounted outside the car. what could be the reason it would be taking so long?? thanks!

    Hmm, in most cases such long time-to-first-fix is due to bad location of a GPS receiver, but your GPS is outside the car, so it must see the GPS satellites well, unless you are under heavy tree cover, or in the middle of tall buildings. Are you?
