Question about Pioneer AVIC-N1 Car DVD Player

AVIC-N1 GPS not working

The unit is locked to one position and my vehicle position on the map does not move. I reset it and it keeps positioning me in downtown New York, Manhattan. Prior to it not working at all, the GPS was way off and i would be traveling in the wrong direction. The brain is mounted horizontally and the unit is in the correct direction with respect to the vehicle. The satellite connection is ok or at least it says so on the unit and the bars for reception fluctuate. the unit worked great for almost 2 years prior.

Have you tried calibrating the sensors? And is the speed sense working, i thing the unit relies primarily on the speed sense then on GPS. You can easily tell if the speed sense is woking on the calibration screen, as you drive the unit omits a bleep.

Check the connections at your brain, you probably pull it loose when you removed the N1. Goodluck.

Psg map update

Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.

You do have both parts of this unit? The Display unit and the (brain) Hide away unit. If so try resetting the unit. it is located behind a tiny hole on the face plate. Just above the right knob.
