Not displaying Lat Lon on GPS unit

General

Question

​I installed my GPS and it is not displaying Lat/Lon position.  What could cause this?

Solution

​If this is a new installation, it can take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes before you get a good 3D fix. After your unit gets its initial fix, turning the unit on in the future will only require about a minute before you get a good 3D fix.
 
Make sure the antenna has a good unobstructed 360 degree view of the horizon. It will not receive if it is under cover or blocked.
 
If you removed the connector on the end of the antenna cable to make it easier to install the antenna, the connector may have been re-installed incorrectly. Please take the connector apart and reassemble it making sure that none of the shield wires are touching the center conductor. Re-attach the antenna to the GPS unit and turn it on. Go to the menu and select SATELLITE. You should see the GPS begin to lock on to satellites.
