If you spent 30 minutes with the GPS running with a clear view of a 
good chunk of the sky and it didn't pick up a single satellite, I 
would say that your GPS35 is toast. You could try giving it a good 
thump - an often used diagnostic procedure - but even if it started 
working again, I wouldn't consider it reliable and would retire it 
from regular use. It's always nice to fix something, but if you take 
troubleshooting time into account, your time spent would probably be 
more than half way to buying a replacement. The GPS18 PC or LVC are 
reasonably priced - lower than the GPS35 I believe. Lots of people 
mention the Deluo GPS receivers as well.
