This may be due to several reasons.
- First, if your car is heavily tinted with VKool or any form of tinting, it will take a long time for the satellite signal to penetrate. For vehicles with this sort of tint, we recommend you to get a satellite fix outside of the car before starting on your journey.
- Second, check if the time on your GPS is the same as your current time zone. If the time is off, it means that your GPS has lost the armature of the satellites; and will therefore take longer than usual to get a satellite fix. Change the time on your device and this should shorten the time it takes to get a fix.
- Third, try to get a satellite fix in an open space with an uninterrupted line of sight (LOS) to the sky before navigating. When driving there could be obstacles up top, such as trees or overpasses that could lengthen the process considerably.
