Hi Bob,

My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

When the Endura Sierra displays "No valid GPS fix" in an open area, it indicates a problem with the built-in antenna.

It will need to be returned to Lowrance for repair.

Hmm. Not the answer I was hoping for but you're probably right. Thanks

Turns out you weren't right at all! Eventually contacted Support at the UK distributor, was told me to remove the card, restart and disable one of the GPS settings (WAFF/?????), turn off, replace the card, turn on and bingo, done in two minutes and free! Lesson learned.
