[Loadstone] trouble with satelite receiver.

How long it takes to get a signal will depend on your receiver and your 
environment. Try taking your receiver outside where it has a clear view of 
the sky and then start the receiver and loadstone. You may have to wait a 
few minutes, you receiver's manual should tell you what to expect. I haven't 
heard of that particular gps receiver before so can't give you any 
information on how well it will work.
