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 that receives TomTom Services through your Smartphone or a built-in SIM card, 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.
When a new QuickGPSfix file is available you will see it in your list of updates. To install it, make sure it's ticked and then click Update Selected.
Note that some devices download QuickGPSfix automatically in the background as soon as you connect to the computer and open MyDrive Connect.
