With a normal GPS device, when you first switch it on, it needs some time to locate enough satelites. Most of the time it needs at least 5 satelites. Some time should be like minutes and not hours. After the GPS device fond enough satelites, it knows where it is and can when it is switched on again work faster. When you try to let the GPS search for satelites indoors, or without a free view to the sky, it is possible the receiver never can find satelites at all. I don't know if any test of the Lowrance iFINDER Hunt GPS was placed on the net, but that is where you can check how long it should take for the GPS to find enough satelites.
The most common reasons are thus 1) You do not have the right PORT and BAUD set Consult the manual for the software. 2) You are noit in a location where the sky is visible to the unit) move outside and away from buildings or electrical items 3) Your battery power is too low to get a fix
iFinder is the king of GPS devices with respect to memory. Though 1 gb looks a little bit too much for it in the time being and may well hang the phone .
You can purchase MMC cards with up to 128MB or SD cards with up to 64MB of memory
