Question about GPS
In order for the GPS to get a fix it needs to receive telemetry information from three or GPS satellites. To do that it needs a clear view of the sky. Local geography such as mountains, hills, tall buildings and heavy forest can block the GPS's ability to receive satellite telemetry. The same thing can happen if you are trying to operate the unit indoors or inside of a vehicle without an external antenna. That's why most GPS receivers are installed at the lowest point in the car that has a clear view of the windshield and side windows - such a location provides the best view of the sky.
To test it your GPS, try using the device outside in a relatively open area with a clear view of the sky in all directions. It should acquire a satellite fix in about five minutes or less. If not, then the unit may have an a hardware or antenna failure that would require service.
