Question about GPS
Usually when you see this it doesn't mean there is a problem with the hardware it means that the data it uses to calculate where it is , is out of date. Usually this happens if you haven;t used it for an extended length of time.
The fix is pretty simple for most devices, you just plug in in to a charger, and do a reset. It just needs to see a few satellites and this reset forces it to download the new data. Once it does that it will work normally again. It can take anywhere from 5 to about 45 minutes to go through the process so you either need good batteries or the charger.
The reset process depends on the gps unit. Some are a menu option while others are a pushing a button and so on. This should be covered in your user manual.Or you can look to the companies support website in the knowledge base on how to reset. Their techs will also be able to tell you how and you should be able to call them toll free or get a email response.
