Your device has a global positioning system (GPS) receiver that uses satellite signals to
calculate your location.
When you use features that require the GPS receiver to find your location, make sure you have
a clear view of the sky.

Getting the best performance
The first time you use the GPS it can take 5 to 10 minutes for your location to be found.
To help the search, make sure you have a clear view of the sky. Stand still and don't
cover the GPS antenna (the highlighted area in the image). The GPS signals can pass
through clouds and plastic, but not through most solid objects such as buildings and
mountains. If your location isn't found after a few minutes, move to another location.
