    I left the watch outside for 30 minutes running the GPS Info app. The app keeps the watch on and it doesn't go to sleep. When I returned it had a fix. I don't know how long it took as I just left it there. So it looks like the cold TTFF is quite long.

    As for indoors, it seems to be a bit hit and miss, which is probably expected. I think the fix jumps around a lot as the app is reporting my speed as > 2 km/h!!!

    You can mark this is SOLVED/CLOSED/WHATEVER and maybe you could add this information to any FAQ you are working on.

    Thanks.

    OK, so reading about a bit on the ublox forums, maybe a cold TTFF could take up to 20 minutes. The question is this... What state does the watch need to be in to get the fix? If I just leave it outside for 20 minutes will it get a fix? Does a GPS specific app need to be running?

    Not getting a fix indoors isn't normal. But let's assume that due to antenna space etc that it won't get a fix indoors. As for outdoors, I would say I waited 2 maybe 3 minutes. I will try again tomorrow and wait longer.

    Hi. I got my Bangle.js today. Great device. All is well so far, except that I don't seem to be able to get a GPS lock. Using the GPS Info app from the Library, the watch never gets a fix, indoors or outdoors. Is that normal? Do I need to enable something extra?

    Thanks, Gary.
