2.7 Helpful Tips
−
It’s better to turn off the TripMate850 when you don’t use it, or the serial Flash's life can’t
last long.
−
Some vehicles having heavy metallic sun protecting coating on windshields may affect
GPS signal receptions
−
−
−
Driving in and around high buildings may affect GPS signal receptions.
Driving in tunnels or indoor parking may affect signal reception.
In general, any GPS receiver performs best in open space where it can see clean sky. Also
weather will affect GPS reception – rain & snow contribute to worse sensitivity.
−
−
−
Low battery of PDA or TripMate850 may affect signal reception.
Please check the correct “COM” and “Baud rate” of your PDA.
TripMate850 output data every second, therefore the actual position and the position
shown in your map may have slight time delay. This may happen when you drive at high
speed or make a turn around a corner.
