You may be getting different results as the weather changes. This can effect 
gps signal. When you start the receiver make sure you're in a place where it 
can receive a signal. I've found that if you start a gps receiver in doors 
where it usually can't receive a signal then the chances of getting a signal 
even if you move out doors are pretty low. If you have this problem then try 
doing a cold start. Go to the gps menu, then the commands submenu, then 
select the cold start option. Your receiver should reset and start receiving 
a signal in a minute or two. This of course assumes you're in an area where 
you can receive a signal.
