Could someone tell me how long their 315 normally takes to work out its position. How many satellites does it have to have a dark bar for, to calculate its position? Also what does 'averaging' mean?

It's a while since I owned one but it needs three bars for a lock and if I recall correctly I could get a position in the open from a warm start within 60secs. I've looked at the online manual and can't find a reference to averaging, see here.

FWIW My Magellan Map330 takes around 60 seconds to log in from a new location but I'm a newbie to this game.

Cheers
