during my vacation in Italy my VIA135 has stopped working.

during my vacation in Italy my VIA135 has stopped working.
it keeps waiting for a GPS signal and doesn't go on, no matter what I do.
I installed all updates without any results.
I reset it to factory defaults and went through the installation again, no results.
What can I do to get it working again?
Thanks to the one who solves this problem.

    The standard response of
    • make sure that the device is fully charged
    • get the latest GSPQuickFix file via MyDriveConnect
    • with the device outside of the vehicle, perform a soft reset; by holding the on/off button till a drum-roll is heard
    If this does fix it, suspect that the windscreen may have a metalized sun protection tint

    Glad to get you going, if you loose GPS signal while in the car (hired?) again do the reset outside again.

    Hi @hillbilly123

    Try again but this time go outside into a clear area away from buildings and trees and do soft reset followed by creating a route to somewhere on the unit and then leave it to see if it locks on. It can take as much as 30 minutes plus and so make sure it is well charged up before you start.
