I have a Via 130 that recently started taking a very long time to search and find satellites. I have updated the software including the GPS Fix, but I am still having the issue. Any suggestions?

    Hi
    @blabor
    Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ????

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    If possible, for the for the first Satellite fix, go outside with a clear view of the Sky

    Thanks. I keep forgetting about that one. It worked.
