Question about Garmin Approach G5 Handheld GPS Receiver
All gps units need a clear view of the sky to collect enough data for a proper "fix". The less obstructions there are, the faster & more accurate the fix will be.
Initially, the first fix may take up to 20 minutes. Long acquisition times typically occur when the unit is powered up after being moved hundreds or miles or more since its last fix. This would be the case from manufacturing location in China where it was shut off to where ever you are now when you turned it on.
Acquisition times after this should be significantly less (10 - 60 seconds)
I hope this helps and good luck.

Fist you should travel around with it, and see if in a different area you get satellites.
It could be where you are at, so this does not mean that in another town or state it won't work.
If you try this and still have problems it could be the unit and you should contact the MFG and send it in for repair.
This is the contact support page I posted below if you need it, its a live link so if you click on it the page will open.

This is not correct. This indicates that there is a problem with the satellite receiver. There should always be a number assigned to the GPS S/W version. If it returns a value of 0.0 this is a problem. If your unit is new, take it back to the store or call Garmin.
