To assure correct clock adjustment, we strongly recommend running your GNSS device for 15 to 20 minutes in static collection mode. In most cases, this will provide your device with the most up-to-date almanac. However, it may be advantageous to download a new almanac file for project planning purposes using a downloaded GPS+ Almanac below, and the TPS Mission Planning Tool.

To download an almanac for GPS & GLONASS, click on the link below, and save the file to your computer. This file is updated automatically and continuously every hour.
