you're not locked on to any satellites

the numbers at the bottom-left of the screen, (12/0) say the gps can
see 12, and is locked on to 0 - it needs to lock on to 4 or 5 minimum
to get a fix

it looks like you've previously got a fix, then turned off the gps and
restarted it. gpsd will often report phantom locations (usually the
last place you were at before turning off) in this situation - even,
as in this case, a decent hdop value (2.6)

you need to make sure gps is on and wait until it gets a fix
