VBOX Touch GPS Coldstart

If VBOX Touch is struggling to acquire satellite lock, a GPS coldstart may be required. This may be necessary when the unit hasn’t been used for a number of days or has dramatically moved location since its last use.

A coldstart can be performed by pressing the Settings Button Settings.png on the bottom left of the screen, and then using the Forward Forward Arrow.png arrow or swiping the screen to the left to navigate to the Diagnostics Settings menu. Press the COLDSTART button to initiate the process.

When the button has been pressed, the unit make an audible sound and a ‘PLEASE WAIT’ message will be displayed on the screen which will count down from 3. The number of satellites will then be displayed as '00' and GPS status will show ‘SEARCHING FOR SATELLITES’ until satellite lock has been acquired. It will take approximately 25 – 30 seconds for the unit to reacquire satellite lock.
