No GPS Signal

Hey all. I recently got the new Garmin S62 and notice that it takes FOREVER like 10-20mins IF that) to pick up a GPS signal. Not sure if any new owners are having the same issue. I also on the Garman fenix 5x plus. I put both watches side-by-side and the 5X would pick up the GPS signal in seconds. Anyone having the same issue?

  • I got my watch this week and played golf this morning.  I'm having the same problem as everyone else seems to be having.  The watch initially knows where I am, but never updates the yardage after that.  I tried a factory reset of the watch during my round, re-synced my watch to my phone, and tried to track the round from there, but had the same problem.  It knew where I was to start, but never updated.

    I double-checked when I got home that I have the latest software on my computer, and the latest firmware on the watch.  Both were the latest.

    Does anyone's work?  I can't believe Garmin would release this without better testing.  I've had probably a dozen Garmin devices and none have been anywhere close to this bad.
