For as long as I've owned my Go 900 (over a decade), it has performed exceptionally well. As of late, however, I've noticed a seemingly routine need (i.e., every month or more) to link the device to my computer in order to download a Quick GPS Fix. Without doing so, the GPS is blind. In fact, loosing the ability to track satellite signals seems to happen out of the blue, without any warning.
Just two days ago, I downloaded and installed QuickGPSFix Version 163300884. Everything has been working perfectly since doing so. How often are new fixes being released? It seemed as though it was almost weekly over the summer. Or could my Go 900 be corrupting the fix during boot-up or shut-down?
