Comment(by emdete):

 candrews, have you testet an external antenne? this works with all my neos
 very well (fix in less than a minute).

 have you disassembled the neo? did you take a look at the antenna & cable?
 is it build well? soldering and crimp of the connector and the cable
 itself with no squashing...? all this may be cause of bad signals too.

 also try the ublox binary mode which shows you much better how many sats
 are in sight which what signals. there is a gps-daemon around capable of
 logging data from that mode. it's part of fso.
