Question Navigation problems

I bought my GC Overland 2 months ago (5,000 Km) and I keep on having this problem with GPS signal it's most of the time Zero satellites and max of 6 which effects the real position on the map and I keep on finding my GPS location somewhere else from my real position.

did any one face such an issue with the GC and is there any signal booster or smtn I can add to catch more satellites ?

Re: Navigation problems

Many GC's in Australia are having this issue. The dealers are relocating the GPS antenna to fix.

Re: Navigation problems

If yours is like the USA model, the GPS antenna is integrated with the rooftop Satellite/radio antenna. The GPS antenna cable plugs in a separate connector in the back of the head unit, and some have unplugged it and plugged in another GPS antenna and threw it under the dash.

Some radios have come from the factory with a loose connector.
