    I tried to get GPS fix using D2G while flying
    (no a-GPS, no wifi, only GPS). It detected
    7 sats, but can't get a fix.

    While on ground, D2G got a fix in 2 minutes.

    Is this related to the fact that I was moving
    at 600 mph in the plane ?

    Anyone else able to get a fix in the plane ?

    Thanks...
