GPS current location NOT accurate
« on: August 06, 2017, 08:56:03 PM »

It was working yesterday, but not today.

My stock Nav/GPS on the 2015 CVO Limited shows my current location about 50 miles away. Makes no sense and can't use the GPS.

I tried the SEARCH function on the site to see if other have had this problem, without success.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you........

I had an issue like this once - in downtown Sturgis the Nav thought that I was in Oakland, CA. After a lot of angst, the issue was traced to an unstable clock signal on the Canbus.

Just like when your computer is malfunctioning, do a restart. For the bike, pull the main fuse which is located under your left side cover. To make sure your alarm does not go off, do so with the main switch on. After you pull the fuse, turn the switch off before you reinsert the fuse. This will reset your infotainment and cure most little glitches.

Tried the fuse - no change.

Re-flashed the unit by the dealer fixed the problem............ Three hours later while on the road, it went bad again.

Now at the dealer for investigation further.

Update...

Picked up the bike this morning. New antenna installed. 300 miles later still working correctly.

FINGERS CROSSED....... As we are half way to the Smokie Mountains for a week of riding including being in the middle of the Full Solar Eclipse in the MOUNTAINS on the 21st.

RIDE ON.....
