Hi

Im using Ipaq 3660 with recently purchased Pretec CF GPS(not LP).Sitting in my garden tonight and playing,I get between 5-8 satellites up,my position is shown on map,but when I try to navigate to another location,I get the message:"Destination set,route will be planned when GPS position is reliable".

Just how many satellites does it need?(or am I using wrong approach?)

BTW what does it mean when green power light on side of Pretec unit flashes?



TIA



Laurence

The flashing light means you have a fix.



You don't have a reliable position because you are a) not moving or b) not actually on a road (or at least not a road that TTN recognises), these are 'foibles' of TTN
