1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    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...
