A "non-volatile reset" on my unit fixed the problem. This is harder than the normal soft reset, where you just stick a paperclip in the little reset hole on the back. Quoting from another website:
Non Volatile Reset - This reset clears out all the GPS data and restores all GPS settings to factory defaults. Particularly useful for our European users where the Egnos sats can sometimes send out test data the iQue doesn't like.
To perform, press and hold the ESC button and the datebook button while pressing the reset button. Hold the ESC and datebook buttons for at least 10 seconds and release.
In other words, hold down the ESC button (on the left side next to the jog-wheel), hold down the datebook button (leftmost of the four little buttons on the front) and then use your paperclip to push the reset button in the little hole in the back. Then keep holding the first two buttons down for ten seconds.
You need three hands to do this, but it worked for me.

I had this problem and did several resets both soft and hard. I also charged the battery completely. The gps unit would work in sim mode but when the antenna was opened it would not. Eventually after several charging cycles and resets, I was able to get it to settle down. I had to sync and reload all data. Good :Luck
