Getting a GPS Fix
The term "GPS ﬁx" is used to describe when your Bluetooth GPS Receiver has enough information from three or more
GPS satellites to calculate your position. You can monitor the strength of the GPS signal using your third-party software.
Note: If using Navman Smart, the GPS status can be monitored on the GPS Status screen. See the Smart User
Manual for more information.
When you turn on your Bluetooth GPS Receiver, it may take several minutes to get the ﬁrst GPS ﬁx. You can
minimise the amount of time this takes by:
• Positioning the Bluetooth GPS Receiver according to the guidelines in Chapter 4.
• Remaining stationary until the Bluetooth GPS Receiver has a GPS ﬁx.
