Re: GPS very slow to pick up sats #gps


 

Once the GPS is up and running, look at the command cgps or gpsmon and see how many satellites and their strength.  You may have a weak or defective antenna?

Have you put the battery on the DRAWS™ board?   It should give you warm boots for the GPS vs a cold boot.  The battery is really only designed to take over when power is removed and has a relatively short life.

A cold boot of the GPS can take several minutes, a warm boot will typically be less than a minute.
