Troubleshooting M460 GPS
Make sure GPS recording is set on. Go to Settings > Sport Profiles, choose the sport and set GPS recording on.
Check the expiry date for the current A-GPS data file from your M460. In M460, go to Settings > General settings > About your product > A-GPS exp. date. If the data file has expired, sync your M460 with the Flow web service via FlowSync software or with the Flow app to update A-GPS data. For more information on A-GPS (Assisted GPS), see What is A-GPS? How does it work?
To catch the GPS satellite signals, go outdoors and away from tall buildings and trees. Keep your M460 still with the display facing upwards during the search. Hold the position until M460 has found the satellite signals. The percentage value shown next to the GPS icon indicates when the GPS is ready. When it reaches 100 %, OK is displayed, and you can start your session.
The best GPS signal reception can be reached when training in an open area where there are no obstructions for the satellite signals. For the best GPS performance, make sure the display is facing up. 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 Polar software even when you have exercised going at a steady pace.
