Anyone that knows me, or frequents the Pocket GPS
forum will probably hear me mention problems I've had gaining acquisitions, and
time to first fix. A great tool that has been around for a while now is a
tool called GPS Info from Navman.
Let me start by saying, it's an ingenious tool and
basic tool that does it's job correctly. I actually wonder why nobody has
written a utility like this before ?
GPS Info is a simple no fuss, no configuration
tool, that when you run it, it will give you full details about the satellite
fixes you have, which type of fix, minimum, average and maximum satellite signal
it is currently receiving, how many satellites it currently has a fix on and
also the full driver version you are are running to talk to your GPS receiver.
It shows you all of this on a no fuss, text
screen. The only option is to exit! Plain and simplistic, that's
what I like!
