Top GPS Navigation tips  
GPS Navigator downloads information about GPS satellites when you use your GPS Navigator for the first time. It normally takes up to 2 min depending on your device. The reason it takes time is that information is being downloaded into your device. You can speed up this initial start-up of you leave your GPS Device motionless for about half an hour. It will load this information and will acquire satellite signals also known as TTFF much faster next time you use your GPS portable.

Another good tip will help you to prevent your GPS navigator from being stolen. There are three most common mistakes GPS owner makes and if you avoid making it you'll be able to deter people from stealing your device.

  • Don't leave your unit in the car
  • Remove the suction cup from your car and wipe out windshield
  • Get a friction mount for your car, it does not leave any marks and never fall down like some of the suction cups.

Update your GPS Navigator firmware often. This is one of those things that people normally don't do and loose out on more efficient navigation and routs. Companies are always updating and releasing new maps, new algorithms for navigating and new points of interest. It is important to update your GPS Navigator with firmware as often as you can especially if you don't use it often.

Plan your trip on computer and then upload to GPS. It is easier to plan your trip using Google Map and then simply upload to your GPS via "Send to GPS" command.
