Question about GPS Devices
In order for your GPS to calculate its own location, it needs to receive data reports from four or more GPS satellites. In order to receive these signals, the receiver must have a clear view of the sky. The GPS may be unable to receive these satellites if it is used indoors, inside of a vehicle (without an external antenna) or is around obstructions such as tall buildings, trees and local terrain such as mountains and hills.
I’d recommend that you try operating the GPS outdoors in a clear area away from obstructions. Turn the GPS on and allow up to five minutes for it to acquire satellites and get a “lock” on its current location. If it isn’t able to do this then your GPS or the antenna may be damaged and in need of service.
