A problem with Edge 305?

I've had my Garmin Edge 305 for almost a year and it's been working well. However, in the past weeks, I've noticed that it's taking longer and longer for it to find and lock onto the satellites. When I first started using the 305, it would take 30-45 seconds max to lock on. Lately, it's taking up to five minutes to lock.

Anyone else have this issue? I use the 305 about 2-3 times a week for the past 9 months.

Have you used the Web Updater to make sure you have the newest GPS Chipset firmware (3.00) and unit firmware (3.20)? I have noticed that the new GPS Chipset Firmware which is only available via the Web Upadater locked on to the satellites a bit faster.

I have not tried that. I'm running software 3.10, and the GPS firmware 2.90. I will try updating and see if it improves. Thanks.
