Would appreciate any ideas on this problem. Have had TTN2 since last August with very few problems. However today I could not get any satellites to lock - I had 8 of them greyed out on the GPS page during a 50 minute drive but that was all that happened.

The only thing I've changed since the last time I used it is that I upgraded the Speed Camera database to the new version......but I can't see that can have any bearing on the problem.

The speed camera database wouldn't make any difference whatsoever. I suspect the GPS has had a glitch, and it may have lost or have an incorrect almanac which will mean a 12.5+ min download/fix. This can happen sometimes, and you will have problems receiving this when downloading, it's best to do this when stationary.

No problem Tony, I'm glad you find it of good use! :D

I have had a few probllems recently with losing the almanac on GPS Receivers, several of the newer ones I'm testing. Unfortunately there's no real reason as to why this happens, but I have found myself although a GPS has worked 8 hours prior, finding that it can take 20 mins to re-fix the position when you start out. In most cases this problem won't occur, and you should be trouble free, but you may find this happening now and again.
