what gps reciever?
Sorry for the crappy phone cam pic..
Ok, a lot of times it takes FOREVER for Iguidance / my GPS to lock onto some satellites.. When I go into GPS info I often times see this:
The gray lines on the bottom.. Those are the satellites the GPS sees, right? Sometimes it will stay gray for 10-30 minutes and sometimes another gray one will pop up while another one goes away etc.. What does this have to do with? My GPS? Comport settings? Iguidance?
Where in your car is the Rikaline 6010 located? Does it have good view of the sky in many directions? Is it possible the car's windows have too much metallic content in the tint, thus making weak satellite signals even weaker inside your vehicle? How many green bars do you usually get, when you get them at all?
Usually 3-5 green bars when it does get them..
Thanks for the help.
3 to 5 is bad. Yes, hold it out the window of your car to see if you get substantially better results. No wonder it takes forever to acquire a fix, if the reception inside your car is so poor
If you cannot find a place inside you car where the unit performs better, then you may consider buying a more sensitive unit (such as the popular BU-353).
I was having similar problems with a BU-353 until I moved it to a better position. I now get lock-on in around a minute or 2 with 8 sats.
Do you have the problem after a fresh boot, or only after hibernation?
If its only with hibernation, then Ive been having the same problem after switching from a Via m10k motherboard to a Jetway j7f2we2g. Might be able to fix it with devcon.
I'll double check tomorrow but I'm 99% it's both fresh boot or hibernation.. Thing is, it's intermittent.. Sometimes it will take 20 minutes to get a lock, sometimes 1 minute, sometimes never and the GPS is in the same place every time..
