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) What has been the battery life of the device - over the last few charge cycles?

2) Has the device been taken OUTSIDE and left in a STATIONARY position - to try and lock on the satellites?

3) WHEN this issue first began (or was noticed)?
