Satnav problem?

My satnav sometimes looses it's way, it shows me driving over roads which I'm not on. If I then stop and manually put me back on the correct road all is fine for a few months then it will do it again. I've gone into the set up options and it doesn't always show any satellites, even after a 10-15 min drive. So how long should it take to get a full satellite signal? I know it doesn't need a signal to work as the gyro, digital compass and speed pulse will know where it is if the satellites are lost, is this normall? I've got version 3.24 disc and have had this along time, so I cannot see it being the disc.

Strange !!!

I know the GPS signal is often lost, even under sparse overhanging trees, so I assume it's not the latest Sirf III.

Once it's back out into the open though it soon gets the signal again.
