    Hi
    Have you tried a Drum roll restart on the device ????

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles......

    If possible, for the for the first Satellite fix, go outside with a clear view of the Sky

    When I first bought it it was working fine but now it has gotten worse; it loses the GPS signal often during driving on a rout to a destination.!@#$%^&*

    Actually held the button longer and got the drum roll restart.
    I'll see if that helped, THANKS YamfazMan!!
