    Curve 8310 Sat Nav

    Advertisement



    Hi guys,

    Was wondering the following: I have the curve 8310 with GPS and vodafone sat nav. Does the gps receiver constantly run (because when not in sat nav and you view GPS status in advanced option it shows coordinates and satelite distance etc...) Or does the receiver automatically shut down and start up when entering sat nav??

    Thanks

    On the 8800 there's a line which displays the Fix Time implying that the GPS is not on unless an application uses it. Also, when an app starts the GPS, it takes a minute or two for it to get a fix, but then updates fairly quickly, also implying that it's not on all the time.

    Does your Curve GPS (Options --> Advanced Options --> GPS) have a Fix time?

    Okay cool, found it. It has a fix time, but I have used it ike yesterday and the fix time still says 9 October 12:09, but I remember using it and the Vodafone Sat Nav displays that its waiting for a fix position when starting navigation! I guess it stops running

    The Fix Time only changes when you do an refresh.
