Italian term or phrase: agganciato
Con il GPS (Global Positioning System) correttamente agganciato [to a satellite] e velocità di spostamento superiore a 3 Km/h viene indicata la velocità seguita tra parentesi dalla direzione in gradi

How is "agganciato" translated given we're talking about a satelite?
From a user manual for a machine for measuring electrosmog
Amazing
My suggestions are:
Explanation:

1. If it is about GPS RECEIVERS than they are being TUNED (radiofrequencies) to the 24-satellite GPS constellation.

2. If it is about 24-satellite GPS constellation than a particular satellite´s orbit is being corrected.

GPS receivers are used amnog other things for weather forecasts and, why not, also for electrosomg measuring. The principle is more or less the same (based on radiowave transmission delay).

Given your particular context I think we´re talking about a GPS receiver, so I would use the first answer.

Explanation:
it is perhaps a closer translation of "agganciato" even if you would not use it for a GPS (unless you mean to hook it up to a laptop or other devices). Agganciato does not seem right in Italian as well; a GPS is by definition linked to not one satellite but several ones, as far as I can tell from this excellent explanation of the system

locked on


Explanation:
Hi again Grace
I think "locked on" is the phrase you need, as in the following website, for example, where you will find "locked onto a satellite".
Cheers
