yesterday I installed the new firmware (F-GGH-2C-1007161.GHX) and I wanted to test all these
interesting new features. The features really sound hot...
Unfortunately the result was very disappointing for me
There was no GPS signal for 45 minutes ! (Forty-Five !!)
Maybe it was just because I didn't use the GH-505 for a few weeks, maybe it was because
I made a complete reset by updating the firmware, - I'm not sure about the reason...
I waited before starting my training about 15 min. During this period of time a gave the 505
the chance to reset GPS by itself two times (3 min. searching - Reset - another 3 min.)
I also tried to switch off/on and start again. No GPS fix ! There were a lot of satellite seen
but not strong enough.
After 15 min. waiting, I started my training anyway and it need about 30 more minutes to
get the GPS fix (of course with a timer reset
Even after that, I recieved some more "No GPS" messages during my run.
So - I didn't make much sense to test the new features. I cannot give much feedback.
However - I had a short look at Pacer (MySelf) and "Birdeye view" which both look very good.
Anyway - I think for me I doesn't make much sense to continue testing, because I think
that the watch has a general problem with GPS signals. It's a pity...
