After a very long hiatus of being off, I powered up the NixiChron. The GPS module, a Haicom HI-203E, blinks at a very slow rate, which means no solid satellite acquisition. Normally, at some point, it would start blinking faster, indicating a solid acquisition. Due to this, the NixiChron boots up normally, but the count up continues, seemingly, forever. The count up exceeded one hour and the counter reset to 00:00.
Is there a lifespan with the GPS module? If so, where can another one be acquired? A quick search turns up manuals, not where to buy another one, at the very least, to debug with.
