TinyGPS++ and U8G2 confict?

When I first configured this project I used a Mega and never experienced this problem. But now that I have re-configured using a Teensy LC it has become an issue.
I have a OLED display (spi) and an Adafruit ultimate GPS.
After an upload, when I have enable a “u8g2.sendBuffer()” the serial monitor shows ‘0’ sats found for several minutes, then will finally start showing the correct nbr of sats.
If I comment out the " u8g2.sendBuffer();" and upload the same code, the correct nbr of sats is immediately reported. Any ideas?

Further testing shows that if I do not execute the “send buffer” until I show a non-zero nbr of sats, everything seem to work just fine. Originally , I sent a message showing ‘no sats’ until a non-zero showed up. Now I do not send anything to the OLED until I have some sats and it works.
