You may have to open the shell and verify that the plug from the GPS module to the main board was not knocked loose. If it ok check the GPS module itself for any cracks in the ceramic module. Also check the three cables from the craft gong to the gimbel and make sure they are tight and look closely to make sure no pins pulled out.

Had shell open and checked the plug and GPS module. All is good andwas in place. The cable though, the bit that goes onto the leg was unplugged at the leg end. I have home made legs on it and was in behind tape and must have taken a knock. Works as it should, thanks heaps for the help much appreciated.
