Garmin Edge 500 took eight miles and half an hour to get a fix today.

Uugh! I don't know what's going on with my Edge 500. I've noticed that it is taking longer and longer to obtain a fix when I start out on a ride. Today, it took almost a half an hour and I rode just over eight miles before it locked in a GPS fix. That's awful! And, this is on an open desert, without trees, hills, buildings, etc. There is no reason it couldn't find at least four satellites needed for that initial fix.

Anybody else notice their unit taking a long time to get a fix?
