Default [Q] Influence of automatic date & time setting to GPS signal strength

Hello everybody,

I had severe problems with my GPS signal strength. I read a lot about the time zone influence to GPS fixing time. Therefore, I activated the automatic date & time setting to see, if this setting would improve my GPS fixing time. I had the correct time zone setting all the time.

The funny thing is, I think, it improved the signal strength a lot.

I do not use AGPS (only simple GPS).

Before setting this option, the phone took between 10 and 25 minutes to fix my position. After setting this option, the phone takes between 2 and 12 minutes to fix my position.

This is really a big improve.

Now, I don't really know, if the automatic time & date option is really an influencing factor to the GPS fixing time.

Therefore I'm asking: is it possible, that the automatic time & date option influences the GPS fixing time? Did someone have the same experience?

Thank you very much.
