Kenwood KNA-G510 antenna?

I've had the GPS unit a little over a year now, it was working great, but latey, it's taking over 5 minutes or more to pick up the satellite signal, what could be the problem? Tonight it took over an hour!

Thanks

    I just purcahsed the GPS unit it's taking over 5-30 minutes or more to pick up the satellite signal, what could be the problem?

    I have this navigation system in my car and recently the antenna cord that mounted a small square black thing on my trunk was severed. I made some calls and a replacement antenna will cost me $81.00. The price seems outrageous and I currently don't have enough space in my budget to get a replacement. What I was wondering is if there is a way to create a homemade solution somehow that I could use until I can get a replacement?

    "Anyway to make a long story short there is a new update for this
    product 3.60 as of Feb 2008, downloaded and the unit works fine. Should
    resolve this issue."

    IF you haven't updated in a while, would you need to install all the updates to get the thing working 100%, or would you need like the last 3 updates to get all the new features. I am still like 3 updates behind and my old daylight savings time is still on the old version. Do I need to go and get all the updates or should 3.60 cover everything up to date so far?

After contacting Kenwood tech support several times, a tech finally came out and said if the unit is under warranty send it back to them and they will swap it since they do not repair it. If the Unit is out of warranty, then contact Garmin. When I contacted Garmin, the tech stated that Kenwood is pulling a fast one instead of standing behind their product. So who actually owns this product Kenwood or Garmin? Both names are on the product, but no one wants to repair it. Anyway to make a long story short there is a new update for this product 3.60 as of Feb 2008, downloaded and the unit works fine. Should resolve this issue.

KNA G510 update software and add POI file


They either installed it under a seat (easy) or behind the dash (hard). It's probably behind the dash, which means it's gotta be all taken apart. When they were installing the head unit they prolly just stuck it right behind it. So it's basically a pain in the ***. You'd be able to find it by following the wires from behind the unit. I have the same problem, I might just take it to the guy who installed it and have him do it. Call around to different stereo installers, they may charge you like 30-60 bucks to have it done... it's probably worth it considering the pain it is getting the whole dash apart and back together again.

Garmin's KNA-G510 won't find satellites unless I tell it I'm in another state and it expands satellite search


I have the g510 with a kenwood head unit. On the satellite screen, on the left it only shows one satellite and on the right it is showing that there are upwards of six or so satellites that it is receiving reception from. I thought it might be the antenna, so I bought a new one. Still having the same problem. It cannot find my location. I've updated the software, I don't know what to do!!

Kenwood KNA-DV4100 will not trun????


I had a similar problem, and found that it was due to not having the vehicle speed sensor hooked up to the unit. Once I did that, it started to work again.
