Every 20 or so seconds the machine gives a pop-up "No Fix" and starts to search for the satelites again and again.

Where are you using the GPS when this is happening? In order to get a fix on its own location the GPS receiver needs to receive telemetry information from four or more GPS satellites. In order to get this data, the receiver needs a clear view of the sky.
If you are using the GPS indoors, in an area with a lot of obstructions such as mountains, trees or tall buildings or in an automobile or vehicle without an external antenna, then your GPS may not have a clear view of the sky. This can cause it to be unable to get a fix on its own location or it may take a very long time to aquire a fix.
If the problem persists when you are using the GPS outdoors with a clear view of the sky, then this may be a sign of a more serious problem that could require service.
