Coming to work today and GPSr was working fine, then all the sudden it jumped off the road and from that point on, it never got back on the road. I was always 20-50 ft off the road. Then when I turned, it really confused it. Any ideas?
I did a reset (the button under the faceplate), but that didn't help. I am going to try to loose signal and then see when it regains its signal if it corrects it.
I had the same issue as well. Glad to see it was not just my unit.
I held the top right corner, got into the diagnose mode, turned the unit off and restarted. It then seemed OK after re-aquiring the satellites.
You joking or serious?
I turned my off and went to a different location (while it was off) and turned it back on and it reaquired the sats. and it seems to be working ok as well.
Sunspot activity occurs as part of an 11-year cycle called the solar cycle where there are periods of maximum and minimum activity; we are currently in a solar maximum time
On my brand new 680 I was having the problem of the map simply stopping and my vehicle continuing on into the abyss. Luckily the GPS was wrong and the world continued out in front of me. I figured out that it doesn't work so well to enable proximity alerts for every single custom POI file in your unit. It can't crunch all those numbers...
So how often is it to be expected to have interference while we are in this "max" state? When does this "max" state end?
We get briefed on the possible GPS interference in the atmosphere by the weather guys. Never knew what it was from, never really cared to ask. But now if I ever sling a GPS bomb off target - I'm going to use that excuse.
Sorry boss must have been some solar flare activity....
http://www.spaceweather.com/ will have info when there's stuff goin' on that might impact GPS and other space-related communications. You can also find out about opportunites to see 'Northern Lights' - they'll have predictions about when & where would be good chances to see - and if you poke around their image library, you'll find pictures (some suitable for windows wallpaper by the way...)of 'Northern Lights' taken in Arizona, and other 'unusual' places to see the lights.
Just noticed yesterday that the speed indicator on my c530 was reading between 2 and 4 mph faster than my speedometer. Until then, I always found that they matched pretty well. I wonder if the solar activity is the cause. (Don't think it affected my Nissan Altimas speedometer, although that would be an interesting response to the officer when he pulls you over) lol
