Nav II - No reception

I have a Nav II on my LT that has always worked well however yesterday it just said it could not find or connect to satellites. I tried powering it down and that didn't seem to help. Any thoughts?

I agree on the new GPS. I picked up a Nav III this week from a member here however it has no maps on it so I have a new dilemma I am trying to solve.

Some would blame it on the recent Solar Storm event !
