Hold your device correctly
When using the receiver, from an upright position, move the device to an angle of about
45 degrees, with an unobstructed view of the sky.
Establishing a GPS connection may take from a couple of seconds to several minutes, even
longer in a vehicle. See "GPS light," p. 16.
Using the GPS receiver may drain the device battery faster.
If your device cannot find the satellite signal, consider the following:
• If you are indoors, go outdoors to receive a better signal.
• If you are outdoors, move to a more open space.
• Check that your hand does not cover the GPS receiver 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.
Satellite signal status
To check how many satellites your device has found, and whether your device is receiving
satellite signals, select
If your device has found satellites, a bar for each satellite is shown in the satellite
information view. When your device has received enough data from the satellite signal to
calculate the coordinates of your location, the bars turn dark blue.
You may receive a request from a network service to receive your position information.
Service providers may offer information about local topics, such as weather or traffic
conditions, based upon the location of your device.
When you receive a position request to allow your position information to be sent, select
Accept, or to deny the request, select Reject.
