If you notice that the Garmin Forerunner 235 is no longer detecting your position or working inaccurately, it may help to update the AGPS data.
The AGPS data helps your fitness watch to receive the satellite signals faster. But they must always be up to date. Here's how to update the AGPS data on the Garmin Forerunner 235. For this you need to periodically sync the Fitness Watch with the Garmin Connect Account.
This works in the following way:
- Method: Connection via USB cable
Connect the Garmin Forerunner 235 with the USB cable to the PC or MAC and start the application "Garmin Express"
- Method: Synchronization via Bluetooth
You need The Garmin Connect Mobile app on your smartphone and an active internet connection. Once you're connected to your Garmin Connect account, the AGPS data is automatically downloaded and updated on the Garmin Forerunner 235.
To initialize the GPS faster now you must now walk with the clock under the open sky and stay there for a few minutes until a GPS fix is done. You now know how to optimize the GPS determination on the Garmin Forerunner 235 by updating the AGPS data.
