How long do you wait for GPS fix on average?

For me it takes quite a long time, up to several minutes.

  • It can take up to several minutes if:

    1. You start the activity in unfavourable terrain, for example surrounded by tall buildings.

    2. You haven't synced your watch with your phone for some time (like more than 12 hours).

    3. You start your activity in a location which is very far (hundreds of miles) from last GPS fix.

    4. You start moving before getting a decent GPS fix.
