Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) When you say you travel a lot, how far do you typically travel between one location and another?

2) Does the device eventually find and lock on the satellite signals - at any location - and then find the courses nearby?

3) Has the device software EVER been updated - since new?

Please use the REPLY box below.

Thanks

Hi again,

I see it has been a few days and I haven't seen a response on this page, so I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue OR if the issue was resolved?

I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.

Thanks, ***** *****
