Tips on creating a GPS
If your device cannot find the satellite signal, consider
If you are indoors, go outdoors to receive a better
If you are outdoors, move to a more open space.
Ensure that your hand does not cover the GPS
antenna of your device.
If the weather conditions are bad, the signal
strength may be affected.
Some vehicles have tinted (athermic) windows,
which may block the satellite signals.
Check satellite signal status
To check how many satellites your device has found,
and whether your device is receiving satellite signals,
If your device has found
satellites, a bar for each
satellite is displayed in the
satellite information view.
The longer the bar, the
stronger the satellite signal is.
When your device has
received enough data from the satellite signal to
calculate the coordinates of your location, the bar
Initially, your device must receive signals from at least
four satellites to be able to calculate the coordinates
of your location. When the initial calculation has been
made, it may be possible to continue calculating the
coordinates of your location with three satellites.
However, the accuracy is generally better when more
satellites are found.
