NYC satellite locating times
It takes me 5 to 10 minutes - often longer - to catch a satellite with my Garmin Forerunner 305 in NYC. I've been looking into upgrading after using it for 4 or 5 years, but don't know if I need to when my main complaint is that it takes so long to locate the satellites. What's annoying about it is that I can't just ride and wait for it - after several minutes of being unable to find it, the device stops searching and asks if I'm indoors, have moved, etc.
Does this get any better with newer GPS devices, or is it something I'll have to live with regardless of what device I get? I'm curious if others in NYC have this problem, and how they deal with it.
I haven't used it in the States at all outside of NYC and NJ, but I've used it for bike tours in other countries. In the Netherlands it varied. Sometimes it could take as long as 10 minutes, while at other times it would catch within 2. Same in Cambodia and Vietnam. In Kenya it located the satellites within seconds every morning.
