You can use a dash-mounted cradle to hold your GPS, there are many different types available, e.g.

You may have inadvertently changed a setting. If you don't remember which setting, you can try resetting the camera:

To perform a reset you need to manually choose the reset option in the Shooting Menu and the Setup menu. To do this press 'Menu', select the Shooting Menu and scroll through the options until 'Reset Shooting Options' is highlighted, press ok, highlight 'Yes' and press ok again. Repeat this for the Setup menu.

If that doesn't work, then the Shutter button may not be making good contact - to fix this, the camera will need to be disassembled and the electronic contacts under the button can then be cleaned if they are dirty and not making good contact. If the shutter button is badly worn it will need to be replaced.
