The Satellite Almanac on this unit is out of date so it will not acquire satellite lock. Read this: Icom 360 ML GPS*/ 65391

if its been working relatively recently its not the firmware. But there is a soldered on battery that some people say is an issue.

If its been stuck for years (like since 2004) its the firmware.

A GPS unit would normally get its time from the satellites...

No idea what the batteries are - but typically this sort of thing is a Lithium button battery or maybe something a bit more unusual like a 1/2AA. I'd wait for Icom's response and if they say they can't do anything for you I'd say you have nothing lost to open it up and see what's inside. Post a pic with a ruler in it for size and any markings and someone on 'ere is bound to know...
