No GPS Icon

Recommended Posts

This past Saturday evening, as I was driving in a completely open area, the "No GPS" message and icon appeared on the screen, yet the map was showing the correct area and movement, so I tried programming a destination.  That worked perfectly as well.  After I restarted at my destination, there was no message but after driving for a minute, it reappeared.  Everything was still working properly.  Yesterday, the message was permanently gone.  I checked GPS.gov and there were no  reported outages or glitches for Saturday.  Weird, just weird.🤔

I've had situations when heavy clouds interfered with satellite connection.

Hi drolds1. I have never had this issue. At least not that I saw. I was going to mention possible outages, but you seem to have ruled that out (although I would guess brief/small outages could go undetected).

 

Have you checked with the Service Department at your Dealership to see if it may be a known issue (i.e. a failing SAT module/APIM/harness/connector etc.)?

 

Let us know how you find out and good luck.

No.  I haven't taken it in, since it was gone the next day and hasn't recurred.  Plus, the warning was apparently a false alarm since the map/nav worked perfectly.  If that hadn't been the case, I would have made a service appointment.  Hopefully, that won't happen.
