Hi, When I had a TOMTOM One device I was able to download a quickfix file which told the device where to find satellites for the next 7 days thus speeding up GPS signal detection.

Now I have the TOMTOM GO iPhone app for which I pay a subscription for unlimited miles.

Why does this app not use the quickfix file to speed up GPS signal detection? It can be around 10 minutes or more waiting for the app to find a signal which frankly renders it pretty unusable and very embarrassing in a car full of friends.

I have app version 1.10.1.

can this be done?

    Keep Location Services switched on and the location appears within seconds, as it does for Google Maps and other mapping apps.

    Go to Settings- Privacy - Location Services and turn on.

    I have location settings for the GO app as 'while using'. it's either that or 'never'.

    Mine is set exactly the same. It takes about 5 secs for the app to load and then the map with my position on it appears. Do your other mapping apps take as long to load.
