  • I seem to be having trouble with this unit acquiring satellites. The unit can pretty routinely connect to one or two satellites but without lock (a hollow red bar on the GPS viewer). I drove around for maybe 20 minutes last night trying to get it to see more satellites to no avail. Then, seemingly at random, it picked up tons of them and immediately locked. I could then cold start in a matter of a few seconds (5-10). This worked all last night.
    However, this morning I am back to the exact same problem I started with last night. No lock. The antenna is in the exact same spot that worked well last night. Any ideas on what could be causing these problems?
    I am using this antenna: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/464
    Also, what are pins 1,2,20 for?

No public wish lists :(
