  • Hi Keoudotcom,

    It may sometimes take a while (even up to 30 minutes) for a GPS receiver to get a fix for the first time after it has traveled a great distance or after it has not been used for an extended period of time.

    Keep it plugged in to your laptop, and let it sit there for a while. The best would be to do this outdoor (eg. in your car).

  • This may be because you do not have a direct line to an a satelite. Remember, Cell-phones and GPS devices operate on 2 different signals. With that in mind make certain that you are not inside of a building. If you are inside of a building make sure that your GPS device is in or very nextto a window otherwise it will continue not to function. Hope that helps?
