If the unit does not power up it, is a problem with the unit.

Hello nonjoe869,

Most GPS receivers do not require any network to operate. The satellites calculate their current location based on information received from Global Positioning Satellites. However those satellites operate continuously. The only way that the user would experience an "outage" is to be in a place without a clear view of the sky (underground, in a hardened building, etc.). Even then the GPS would still turn on and many functions would operate. It would just not be able to acquire satellites or issue location reports.

That said, if the GPS is part of another device (such a cell phone) that does require a network, the network status could have an impact on the GPS. A network outtage isn't going to prevent the device from actually turning on, however. If the GPS won't turn on at all it is likely a problem with the GPS or the power source.

Best Regards,
Ken
