TomTom Quick Fix

TomTom has announced the ability to give you faster satellite fix times with their program called TomTom QuickGPSFix. If you have a TomTom GO 510 or TomTom GO 910, you can take advantage of this nice little capability. These two units have the ability to predict satellite positions for the next 7 days, so when you turn the GPS on, it knows where to look for satellites instead of scanning the entire sky.

How to get TomTom Quick Fix? Simple. Connect your TomTom GO 510 or GO 910 to your computer running TomTom HOME at least once per week, and it will download these prediction tables. Can't do that? Connect through your Bluetooth phone to any TomTom PLUS service and it will download the predictions for the next week. Remember, to take advantage of this capability you'll need to connect at least once per week.
