After your saw sits for any extended period of time, it is suggested to drain all the old gas out of the tank and replace it with fresh mixed fuel. Currently we are being provided 'summer blend' fuel in warm weather and 'winter blend' fuel in the winter. All fuel now being 'oxygenated fuel' has a tendency to lose its oxygenation which changes the blend (for lack of a better description). Old winter fuel can make a saw diffficult to start in the summer and vice-versa.
I wouldn't suggest running fuel with a high blend of alcohol because alcohol has a tendency to 'draw' moisture from the surrounding air and you can end up with water in your tank or gas can.
Alcohol can also deteriorate rubber components and cause fuel delivery problems due to swollen or cracked lines.
Never store your gas container directly on concrete or directly on dirt because that will cause moisture to condense on the inside surface of the fuel container above the level of the fuel. Always store gas cans on a rubber mat or on a wide board.
Always keep the filter clean and sawdust out of the carb vestibule area to minimize contaminates entering the system.
I'd suggest a full choke and a few sharp pulls until the plug fires, then go to half choke and pull sharply again and get ready to finger the throttle a bit until it warms up fully.
If the GPS device left unused for long time or moved very far without being on, it usually needs very long time star working again. This could be 10 minutes to perhaps 30 minutes. I suggest you put the GPS in an area where there is lots of open skies which is not obscured by tall buildings or large trees for a while. It should eventually start working. If not, try upgrading the firmware from Garmin website.
Are you in an area where it may be iced shut? This winter has already been nasty for some areas so If that may be the case heat up some water to boiling and pour it into the area where the lock would be. Rinse/repeat. Hope this helps!
When its receives a signal from a satellite it receives also information about satellite positions in the coming days. When you boarded the plane you must have turned off the GPS, so it could not keep track of your position. You land a long distance away and turn GPS on. It starts to search for the satellites according to the information stored in it that pertains to their positions over Dallas. It is unable to lock on the satellites. And then it was able to receive GPS signals from other satellites and all fell into place.
Yes it will happen again if you travel long distances in a short period of time. If you cannot keep it turned on during the trip, you should try to update satellite positions through Internet after you reset the time zone. You should also be patient, and give it time to find its bearings.
