    Hi @ngookin

    You don't say which GPS unit but the following often sorts it.

    Charge then unit for a least 2 hours or do the following whilst connected by the units USB cable to an Apple or similar Mains Charger plug that takes the USB .

    When ready go outdoors well away from buildings and trees etc so the unit will have a clear view of the sky all around. Turn the unit on and when ready Press and hold in the On/Off button for 20 seconds plus until you hear the drumroll sound then let the button go. When it has restarted set a route so you are ready to drive off then lay the unit down and leave it for up to 30 minutes. If possible placing it down on a metal car roof can speed the process of sat finding up.
