256Re: Red light flashing...
- Jun 2, 2008Dion,
What kind of antenna situation are you using? Do you have a decent
view of the sky with it? When it came back to me I first verified
the GPS sentence configuration. I then tested it for a lock by
setting YOUR antenna on my concrete patio and running the cable
inside. I had a full lock within 40 seconds of powering the unit up.
Please just make sure the antenna is in a good position to see the
sky. The receiver is very sensitive and I have found that it is very
forgiving with poor view, but it has to see at least some of the sky.
