Just a quick question from a noob about GPS receivers/antennas. I purchased a globalstat BU-353 and it died from the apparent heat on my dash. It is only 5 months old. After this incident, I just purchased an AYAY receiver from ebay. Quality looks great but it takes almost 5-9 minutes to acquire a position instead of the immediate constant lock that I got from the BU-353. My Via MB does not turn off the power to the GPS so I assumed the AYAY would keep a lock like my BU-353 did, but that is not the case. I bought the AYAY because of the reported durability against the heat. Now I am in the market for yet another GPS receiver due to the long time the AYAY takes to lock from start. Am I the only one that cannot find a good, long lasting GPS receiver/antenna? Any suggestions? Thanks
