It re-acquires satellite signals in 100 ms and updates position data every second. Navicore Personal is not only a full navigation system for use when driving, cycling or walking, but also a convenient pocket guide that includes most public roads and thousands of points-of-interest such as restaurants, hotels, petrol stations and local tourist venues.
