Try this first. Power it up and leave it outside - in your car window maybe, where it can see the sky. Give it a good 20 minutes.

Then let me know if it finds the satellites.

Tried it picked but can't change the current destination it's stuck on a California address as the current destination address.

Can you press the power button and hold it in for 10 seconds?

Then let the GPS reboot and see if it detects the satellites.
