Gps signal

Have no idea where im posting this as tapatalk update has changed everything..
Anyway im wanting to confirm if others get more than 1 or 2 satalite signals on the gps system 2012 overland. Reason being im only getting as mentioned above and car had me over 150km away on the screen to where I was. Taking it to dealer next week. Dash was replaced back in oct so thinking something may have worked loose or sh itself.

Re: Gps signal

After a couple of minutes sitting in my driveway mine is currently showing 8 satellites.
It sounds as though yours hasn't been updated as this was a major issue last year.
Unless as you say they haven't reconnected it properly

Re: Gps signal

Will check mine this afternoon but for gps to work properly you would need a minimum of 3 satellites to trangulate your position for any degree of accuracy (and more the better).

Re: Gps signal

Correct roachy as this was my issue the other day. Ive been using a gps for years in other circumstances and I know thus isnt working like its meant to. Today it did flick between 1-7 but only for a sec or so. I jyst wanted ammo to take to the dealer on wed warranty runs dry in jan

Re: Gps signal

I have a 2012 Overland. Always see between 4 and 8 sats with typical around 6. Definitely something wrong. Note there was a TSB for antenna location on RHD models and poor reception about early 2012. You might want to check whether it applies (and was done) if so.
