Slow positioning of Xiaomi Mi Watch GPS

The problem of slow positioning of Mi Watch GPS for the first time is mainly due to the different ways of starting GPS. GPS is cold start, warm start and hot start, the first start belongs to cold start.

Cold start of GPS generally occurs in the following situations

●First use of smartwatch GPS function.

●Watch power depletion, shutdown and other reasons leading to the loss of satellite ephemeris.

●The displacement of the watch is more than 200 km when it is turned off.

Due to the cold start state, the mi watch GPS positioning system needs to download satellite ephemeris information. So there is a slow positioning of GPS, which is a normal phenomenon.

In addition, considering the wearing mode of the watch and the influence of the arm on the GPS antenna, it is recommended to choose an open site to avoid affecting the accuracy of GPS.
