VBOX Touch GPS Coldstart

If your VBOX Touch struggles to acquire a satellite lock, you may need to perform a GPS coldstart. A coldstart could be necessary when the unit hasn’t been used for several days or when its location has moved significantly since it was last used.
You perform a coldstart by pressing the Settings button at the bottom left of the screen. Settings.png
Use the Forward arrow or swipe left to navigate to the Diagnostics Settings menu. Press the COLDSTART button to initiate the process. Forward Arrow.png

When you press the button, the unit will make an audible alert and you will see a ‘PLEASE WAIT’ message on the screen, counting down from 3. The number of satellites will then be displayed as '00' and the GPS status will show ‘SEARCHING FOR SATELLITES’ until it has acquired a satellite lock. It takes approximately 25 to 30 seconds for the unit to reacquire satellite lock.
