MyGIG RER GPS Stuck
 
Driving home today I noticed that the GPS in my '08 WK's MyGig RER is "stuck". I thinks I'm at an intersection and won't "see" that I'm no longer there. Is there some kind of reset or something to make the GPS check its location? I have between 6 and 8 satellites and a decent signal when I look under system setup so I'm not sure whats going on.

is the gps frozen or it's moving but at the wrong location?

From wkjeeps...

To Reset the MyGIG radio it is best to pull the vehicle IOD fuse (with ignition off), instead of unhooking the negative battery cable. This is especially important with models REN and REZ radios. Disconnecting and Reconnecting the battery can cause electrical spikes that may damage MyGIG REN and REZ radios. Once the fuse is pulled, press Open/Close hardkey on upper left of head unit and hold for 10 seconds to discharge the capacitors in the headunit.


It happened to me a few times but that was when i had only 1-2 SATs available. I would turned off the engine and turn it back on and usually it would pick up the current location. A few times i had 5 SATs but the location was off by 10 miles. Drove for about 30 mins and nvr picked up the correct location. Would be fine the next day tho.

The arrow stays suck at one spot but as I drive the map under it rotates. I'll try the IOD fuse.

You must just recalibrate the gps in the enigeering menu

Seek +. Seek- and menu push togther, then going to nav debug menu then when you are in you see nothing go 3 x up in this menu and then you can see gps calibration.

After recalibrate drive with the car.

Dont touch the screen calibration!!!
