How long did you wait after turning it on?
How good is your antenna position?
Did you tell it to remember the location after a survey finished?

If it's been off for a few weeks, it doesn't know where the satellites are.  
To get started, it has to find one by a brute force search.  With a good 
antenna, that doesn't take very long.  Then it takes 15 minutes to collect 
the satellite info.  With a poor antenna location, it takes longer, maybe a 
lot longer.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
