GPS antennea seems to die, is this typical of inexpensive units?

Ta, I have installed 9.4, it boots and I can see the web interface but it's only got power and network connected, as it is removed from its normal home to access the USB port.

As the root cause of the problem is the GPS I'd like to sort that out so it's correct. I don't use the NTP feature but I might in the future. Fair chance I'll have forgotten about this issue by then... Don't really like having the receivers firmware tweaked to "correct" it either but that's now done and 9.4 has some other tidying up as well.

Pragmatically, return it to its home, check it's working properly and let it get on with it...
