Thanks for any help.
Are you sure? My THL W7 will lock in 30-38 secs without data. SNR is also around 30++ which seems good enough for navigation. The built-in GPS antenna (glued to the plastic cover) as I can see is already quite large and should be optimal for this purpose.
Are you trying outdoor and under a clear sky?
However, I have a problem with the compass getting stuck at 2 o'clock. Anyone having this prob?
