Power the GPS down for a spell, maybe an hour or two, overnight if possible. This will clear the memory and then power it up again, let it reboot. Make sure the GPS has a clear view of the sky or use an external antenna so the GPS can gather satellite data. Also do not press the buttons many times as this can confuse the GPS and make it "lock" up.

You have a problem with your internal antenna. You can easly reslove this by hooking up an external antenna, and watch it go from 20 to two mins.

Have you tried a Master Reset? It may help, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press and release the power button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts.
