Comment(by BlueStar88):

 After running OM GPS UI 0.20 for several hours (> 6) I still get no fix
 and no coordinates. The display shows more than 12 satellites at different
 levels, mostly above the first third part of the scale and there's a
 'normal' log message flow. It was running under different conditions, near
 by the office window, wrist side for a walk and on a chair in the open
 home garden.
 I haven't placed any assist data into it yet, but it *should* work without

 I have no external antenna for further testings.

 Since the GPS-module should work autonomous (besides the os and user space
 software) it could be a severe hardware or firmware issue.. :-(
