Hi Ricardo,

As the components inside the unit begin to degrade, it will become increasingly difficult for the unit to locate the satellite signals, and it will become "lost".

Another possible cause is a bad GPS antenna connection or a faulty antenna - check the connection and try fitting a replacement GPS antenna to see if that helps.
