Hi Fred,

This could be due to a bad GPS antenna connection, or a faulty antenna.

Check that all cable connections are securely attached and there is no corrosion or other sign of damage to the connector or cable.

If nothing is found, try using a different GPS antenna and let me know if that helps...
