Your navigation device uses the signals of at least 4 satellites to get a GPS fix and determine your starting location. This can take longer when the GPS signal is weak or partially blocked.
When using QuickGPSfix, a feature only available to TomTom customers, your navigation device retains information about where the GPS satellites will be for the next 7 days. Your navigation device can then calculate where you are very quickly and with only a weak GPS signal.
If you have a connected device (Smartphone Connected, Always Connected or LIVE), you receive automatic updates for QuickGPSfix as soon as they are available. For Smartphone Connected devices you need to connect to a compatible Smartphone in order to receive updates.
For other devices, you receive an update for QuickGPSfix when you connect to TomTom HOME or MyDrive Connect.
