No, it's telling you that your antenna is not in a good location.

When the satellites it can see are good enough, the survey makes progress.  
When they go behind a tree or whatever, it stops.  Survey mode requires 4 
satellites, and maybe the S/N has to be above some threshold.

Remember it is using an old GPS module.  They are far less sensitive than 
modern units.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
