Hi again, I see it has been a few days and I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue or if the issue was resolved?Has the device been tried OUTSIDE of any vehicle - where these is a CLEAR view of the sky?I only ask because when a device does constant searching, it usually means the satellite signals are being "blocked" OR and antenna is bad. I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.Thanks, ***** ***** .-(im)
