Jvc kw-nx7000 not working after I tried to update the firmware

I have a jvc kw-nx7000 and i had tried to update the firmware and now my GPS has no signal. I have called in to the customer service line (Canada) and they were not very helpful. They told me to try several things but none of them worked. Now they want me to send it to a jvc service center.

i dont want to pay jvc to simply reset my unit.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

i used a 2gig sd card and was preformated to fat32.

once the installation process started my screen turned blue and a gps update begins. A cursor spins, than it says retry.

now I dont have any GPS signal!

I have tried to unplug my car battery with the hopes that it would reset the unit.

Here is what jvc told me i should try but didn't work:

turn off the unit
take key out of ignition
turn on unit again and try the installation process again

please help!

I just performed the update as well and ended up with the same issue. I'm hoping to drive my vehicle around to see if it will eventually detect the satellites.

I might recommend a couple of things. Not sure what JVC Support has recommended but you can try a hard reset. Button is located on the left bottom corner of the unit.

You could also attempt a factory restore. The option is located in the settings under your navigation menu.

Overall I like the unit as it seems to be a stable system., for customization and information related to what JVC considers to be propritory info absoultely sux!!! The backgrounds are hokey and screens could really use an overhaul. I have yet to find any really great solutions for working with the files and information and have started to learn on my own. Very slow going so far as I really don't want to brick the unit. If you or anybody else has a good solid recommendation other than the obvious for working into the file structure etc... please feel free to share!

I have downloaded the firmware updates to my sd card but it will not finalize, it keeps saying retry after going through the setup and resetting process. My gps says lost signal. Please help.

Are you following the instructions posted on the same place? If not download, print, and follow the instructions.
Hope you are not using SDHC (higher than 2GB)

JVC KW-NT1 GPS not working in UK

Have you tried re-flashing the unit with the latest EU firmware update available from the JVC website? Should overide the current firmware then allow you to use UK maps. If it doesn't work you can always reflash it with the USA update.

Jvc kw-nx7000 parking break by passed still no video

Connect the parking break as recommended. Then check whether the video appears when parked. If not, send it for service. If yes, then the bipass was not done correctly.

check these options

BAUD RATE AND PORT are set correctly. most gps now have a search function which selecvts the correct options. If not consult manual

Check battery capacity as this is a major factor too low wont pick up signal. freplace if necessary.

claer view of the sky.. not inside

Could even be more serious than that burned out chip and that;s expensive to repair
