    Is it possible to manually set the date on this unit?, this will help the unit get a fix, some of these older units suffer from the 'Week Rollover' problem, it is not always fixable

    The unit needs to be placed outdoors away from trees, buildings etc. where it has a clear 'view' of the sky

    I set the coordinates to my other GPS the time the date set it outside with my cigarette lighter adapter hook to my truck with a clear view of the sky first for a day then 3 days and still nothing all it ever does is say searching never get my bars back I guess it's a loss I really don't want to trust it to take my boat out in the ocean so I can't depend on it but I appreciate the words of advice thank you very much
