Thanks, Mike. The unit I'm using has a remote antenna, well, remote in the sense that it's on the end of a 6' wire that is attached to a post outside the controller housing. When the unit first wakes it often takes 15-20 minutes to get it's first successful string, but after that it has not been my experience that it takes more than a few seconds to get the data and initiate the position correction for the array. Of course, suspecting that it might be the antenna, I stood out there on a ladder holding it as high as I could looking like an idiot, but that didn't seem to change a thing. It might have changed my neighbors' opinion of me...probably not. Still doesn't mean you're not right.

If it comes down to it, I have a spare, unused #28501 GPS module that you could swap into your system. If it works, then it's yours. However, I'm first more inclined to suspect a loose or corroded connection.
