What times are those? What's different when you can get signal?

You won't be able to get a signal in tunnels, when you're in amongst tall buildings, and other times when the view of the sky is blocked.

You might consider getting an external antenna if you have a windshield that blocks signal (e.g. heated windscreen).

Gps singal lost


Often, when your GPS is in a "covered" area ... e.g. inside a building, in a tunnel, under a bridge, amongst / under tall buildings, etc... when there is no open space (directly) between your GPS and the satellites, your GPS will loose its satellite signals. If you're in such locations, try to find some "open space" and wait a bit for the signals to be picked up again.
Another common reason why the GPS doesn't get signals, or doesn't get the signals quickly, is because the "latest" satellite positions (locations) have not been updated in your GPS. If/when you connect your GPS to your computer (e.g. using HOME ) and download the GPS satellite (QuickFix) location information, your GPS will have the most recent locations of the satellites in your vicinity/region. With this information, your GPS can pick up the signals more quickly ... instead of having to search/scan around to find the signals ... which can take a bit more time. While your GPS is searching for the satellite signals, it shows the "signal lost" or "no GPS signal" message.

Waiting for gps signal all the time


GPS satellites are constantly flying over the globe, they are not in a stationary orbit, you have to wait it out until your GPS recieves an incoming signal, it's not always going to be instantaneous..

GPS signal not sufficient on iPhone 3G


Had the same problem with Navigon for the iPhone. I found a simple quick fix:

1. Go to your iPhone Settings
2. Press the General tab
3. Scroll to the bottom and press the Reset tab
4. Press the Reset Network Settings tab

This may take a short time, then after it's done, reboot your device (if it doesn't on its own).
You should now have a good GPS signal!

GPS takes a long time to receive satellite signal.


You probably are just in a bad location where satellites are not reachable. All these units work from the same satellites and recieve them the same so it wouldn't matter what brand you have. I highly doubt that the powerlines and cell towers are effecting the transmission.
