Although I believe that I have a good strong GPS signal, and the box has worked well for over a year, I decided to spend the $6 and order an external antenna. It can't hurt and can only eliminate one more potential problem area. I really hope that the service returns to normal before I get the antenna. I'll continue to post updates.

I think the best indicator of that is how long does it take after a "power cycle" before the GPS light is solid.......mine locks after about 1 minute,  i would think anything longer than 5 minutes is "struggling" but probably ok.....longer than 10 i think is bad......mine too worked for a year with little problems, i think the updated had something to do with the GPS part of it somehow.....
