Just an observation.

Just updated TT1v1 to 6.560.

Firmware flashed - never had that before on previous updates.

Then prompted to download GPSQuickFix.

Having restarted the device it refused to obtain a GPS position, instead reported 'poor GPS signal'. And this was from a location that has never previously had a problem.

It was only when I took the unit outside did it finally get a signal - and that took 10 minutes !

Hopefully not a retrograde update.

not sure but i think any firmware upgrade will probably need a new almanac so a first sat lock will be quite long....are there any tech peeps who can confirm this?..

Thanks

Just been out and turned it on again and it is now much quicker.

Just treat my first ramblings as a FYI.


Whilst I was out there I just shortened the cable with cutters and applied shrink wrap. Worked quite well, didn't fancy opening the cigar lighter adapter.

I had to uninstall this upgrade as my One restarts every time I turn it off.

Just had exactly the same problem, and reinstalled previous version. Quickfix didn't seem any quicker anyway.

I'm going to revert back to my original post.

I am finding that when switching the unit on after a period of about 24hrs+ it is taking longer to get the first 'fix'.

I just think that the sat chipset is not as sensitive as it was.

I used to get a fix in about 20secs, now it is taking about a minute+. Once it has the fix though it works just as before.
