Quote:Just two cents from someone in Airline Industry, wonder if may be a satellite problem? Are you near a MOA ( military ops area). You may try contacting the someone at FAA and just see if may be problem other than your scope.
Quote:But does it also store the coordinates of the scope? If it does, then entering the time manually should give it everything it needs. I can't remember if it does that, though.Kevin
Quote:I found the only things I had to set manually were the "time zone" and "standard or daylight savings". If these are not right and conflict with the GPS, it will give it a "brain fart"!!

Quote:I think I read once that a car GPS is always talking to 3 or 5 satellites. Your gps gets time data off of each of them and can figure out your direction speed location and whatnot. But a telescope GPS should only need to hit one satellite, so if that one GPS is having issues I could see it not linking.
