RNS510 - No GPS Signal

Postby TimH » Fri Apr 10, 2015 4:01 pm

Hi Guys

I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with this problem.
Nav was working fine yesterday, however, I tried to use it today and my current position is not showing correctly so I can no longer use the nav.........
I've checked the GPS viewer which shows the following;
Satellites: 0/9
Mode: No Fix
The headunit was factory fitted along with Bluetooth.
Here's the version information;
Part no 1T0035680D
HW-Version H04
SW-Version 3810
Map Version 7690
Just wondering if there's anything I can check before I go to my local dealers. I presume there's a fault with the GPS receiver, just wondering is this the Shark fin on the roof or is it a unit buried in the dash?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Tim

Had this on mine. I just bought a new gps antenna on eBay and mounted it in a gap above the head unit (fairly easy to pop out) - £10 and half an hour and it was all done. It saved taking off the headlining to get to the original receiver. I even found a video on YouTube of someone doing it on the same unit in a golf

I tried a factory reset as you suggested but alas no success.

I received a GPS antenna which I purchased from eBay and fitted it this evening.
I powered the unit up on my driveway and had 5/12 satellites with 3D fix, hopefully this will increase once I'm out on the open road.

Thanks for the help guys.

I know this is a bit of an old thread but I've got the same problem as above. Can anyone recommend what type of antenna I should buy ? Does the antenna connector change on the year or model of the unit ?
Cheers

Just search on the bay for “gps aerial for vw” and about 10 come up. You need one with a fakra plug. They all seem to be blue fakra plugs, not checked the back of the head ubit but as they’re all blue likely this is right.
