Question about GPS
In order for your GPS to pick up satellites it needs a clear view of the sky. Obstructions such as tall buildings, trees and local terrain such as mountains and hills can affect your receiver's ability to "see" the sky. This is also true of GPS's used indoors or inside of a vehicle.
A GPS receiver without a clear view of the sky can take a long time to get a fix on its own location. The process can also take additional time if the GPS has been powered off for an extended period of time or if you have traveled a long distance (greater then 500 miles) since it was last turned on.
If the GPS is taking longer then five minutes to achieve a satellite lock when used outdoors in a clear area this could be a sign that the GPS needs service. If you are using the GPS indoors or inside of a vehicle with no external antenna then the GPS could take a long time to acquire a satellite lock or could fail to achieve a lock.
Hope this helps!
