I received a gift of an old GPS 38 and would like to update the software to enable me to use it... it's stuck on 3Jan00 now... I powered it up a few days ago and have been unable to get it to lock on and find my location... it does find satellites (3) so far but has not given me the correct time or location.

autolocate mode. In 4 hours the GPS 38 had healed itself through patiently looking for satellites.
