    You reset it by doing a drum reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds. Is the battery fully charged. When was the last time you connected to MyDriveConnect for a gpsfix file?

    I have tried this many times as I have this problem too. Have also reset to factory settings several times but still no gps signal.
