I have had this maybe twice but some times it works and some times it 
does not work My external gps isn't the best i don't think!!

I seem to have a good signal but then as I walk I seem to loose the 
signal it seems to take quit a bit of walking around before the external 
gps gets a good hold of the sats and keeps the signal.

I would say around 5 mins or maybe a bit more I will send the unit back 
to maplin.

Thanks for any help you can give on this.
