What is QuickGPSfix and how do I update it?

Updated: 13/02/2015 12.27 AM

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.

Most of our navigation devices can use QuickGPSfix to obtain a GPS fix, but some only use historic GPS data.

To obtain the latest version of QuickGPSfix for your navigation device, follow the steps described below:

  • New Zealand map

    The latest map for New Zealand is showing incorrect speed limits and has been withdrawn. Our map team has identified the issue and is working on a fix. If you have already installed the New Zealand map version 9.45, please connect your device to MyDrive and download a temporary fix with map version 9.40. A new map will be available soon. We will update this announcement when the new map is available.

  • New map (945) released!
