GPS and charging the battery Devices using GPS need much power, so it is important to always charge the device before taking it into use. When not in use, switch off the device to save power. When you have turned the TWIG device on, make sure it gets GPS position before taking it into use. Usually this means you need to go outdoors to open sky. Getting GPS position can take several minutes. Due to GPS satellite system design, getting GPS position can be difficult if longer than a couple of hours have elapsed since the last GPS position fix. You can help GPS acquisition by keeping the device stationary and by activating AGPS function.
