Troubleshooting V650 GPS
Make sure GPS recording is set on. Go to Settings > Sport Profiles, choose the sport and turn GPS recording on.
To catch the GPS satellite signals, go outdoors and away from tall buildings and trees. Keep your V650 still with the display facing upwards during the search. Keep it in a horizontal position in front of you and away from your chest. Stand still and hold the position until V650 has found the satellite signals. A green circle blinks around the GPS indicator while V650 searches for satellites. The blinking stops and the green circle around the GPS indicator is static when the GPS is ready. You can start your session.
For best GPS performance, use your V650 with the display facing upwards.
The best GPS signal reception can be reached when training in an open area where there are no obstructions for the satellite signals. Due to the nature of the GPS signal, for example hills, tall buildings, and trees may block the satellite signal. Rain, fog, and snow may also affect the signal quality. These conditions may result in uneven speed reading during the exercise and cause an uneven speed curve in the Polar software even when you have exercised going at a steady pace.
