         Just to put an end on this thread -- I continued with no 
WAAS until last night -- the Garmin GPS V was "trying" to get the 
corrections from "satellite #47" and that sat always showed low on 
the horizon with zero signal strength.  I ended up doing a key 
combination -- MENU + POWER ON -- lost all my data, but now WAAS is 
working fine.  And I upload new maps and waypoints from MapSource as 
necessary, so all is well now.
