KW-NX700, constant "lost gps signal" all of a sudden!

Everything has been working fine since July when this first came out. About 2 weeks ago I loaded the new firmware/update, everything was still working fine, now all of a sudden no GPS signal. Driving me nuts!

    Same happened to me 2 weeks ago. I updated the firmware to 1.2.6 but I still have the . Since I leave in Montreal, Canada, I'm wondering if the cold temperature could be the problem.

    I've noticed the same issue, but it is not constant. I actually noticed the problem before installing the firmware update to (I was running 1.1.3 I think prior). I do see the Lost GPS signal message, but it is intermittant.

    Same happened to me just a couple days ago. I tried to fix it by upgrading the firmware but it doesn't do any help. Lucky me that the place I bought it at agree to replace my unit for FREE (I bought it at Mickey Shorr).

I know this may sound like it has nada to do with the signal but disconnecting the ipod and resetting the 7000 worked well for me.. Something about the ipod source seems to interrupt the signal on mine

Check the speaker connections it looks like there may be a feedback signal going back to the internal amp. If those are fine then the amp itself is clipping and you need to have the player checked.

Can someone tell me what the Key 1, Key 2, and Key Ground wires on Pyle audio systems are?

They are for the steering wheel controls. If you don't have the steering wheel functions in your car, then I wouldn't worry about them. You may have a bad antenna for the gps.

My nx700 isn't playing videos

Install a toggle switch to the parking brake wire form the unit. One end of the wire goe to ground and the other to the parking brake wire. The unit needs to see the ground circuit switch; so,start the vehicle with the switch in the off position, then switch to the on( applying ground to the wire).

Clarion nx700 parking break bypass

Wrong. To bypass the lockout feature so you can see the DVD play anytime - you need to toggle the green wire away from ground (from Low to High - i.e. momentary switch) so the radio sees the rising edge of the 12Vdc signal. The green wire is normally high and is tied low. When you put the parking break on - it opens the loop.

A switch will trigger the Opto Isolator inside the head and bypass the lock out feature. This works fine - or you can spend the $25 on the bypass module - that does the same thing - but works as an electronic toggle ~ based off the remote wire and an internal relay in the module. The module will toggle the green wire every time the radio powers up.

Out of NO WHERE! it says lost gps signal and has my arrow located in the middle of nowhere. if anyone else had this problem and fixed it let me know please!

Just had this unit installed yesterday (9-28-09) and 12 hours later, "Lost GPS Signal"!! I tried the battery disconnect tick, and it worked.......for now. And it was only after this that I was able to get it to accept the Firmware Update. Might be worth a shot, at least temporarily. I would only asume that they'll be able to address this by means of SD Card update soon!

KW-AVX710 Screen stays black (off) untill I hit the open button

So I decided to verify all the connections after I got frustrated with it. Everything was correct except one wire that was on the new harness I got that for my car that was labeled "12V fused" (supposedly the key on power source). I tested it with my volt meter and it did not have power at any time, even with the key on. The constant power source wire was hooked up so that's why I was able to open the face and eject CD's and DVD's but not do anything else (like when your ignition is off). So I ran a new wire from my fuse panel and everything works now. Just like my Thermodynamcis professor says "nullius in verba" (take no one's word for it), just because the wire was labeled doesn't mean it's right! Hope this helps.....
