You should see something like this if it's on
This was in my living room by the way;

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

I just turned my GC on for the first time in weeks, it took over ten minutes under open sky to get a signal.

Try going to "Tools" "Settings" scroll down to "GPS" and make sure it is on, as in the picture;

Tools;


.
Settings;

.
GPS;

.
How this screen should look;

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

My explorist GC will not connect to any satellites. I try calling support and they were no help. Does anyone have any ideas. It was bought about a year ago. My kids love geo caching and now we can't do it this year unless I can figure this out. Any help would be great. It has software Ver. 1.7.

Thanks for any help.
