Gps location stuck

edited November -1 in Model S
Went to the gym today and upon return and driving away my location on the map shows me still in the parking lot. Rebooted and no fix. App shows my location there as well...Obviously my homelink, charger timing settings and auto steer are affected, as is of course my ability to route or use the map.

Any ideas?

    I had same type of issue. My GPS would show my car was in one location, when actual location was 45 miles away. Service found the problem to be a faulty GPS connector in the MCU, requiring replacement of the entire main screen unit. This failure occurred in the first two weeks of owning my car, a refresh MS60D delivered September 2016. Car was at service for a week. The repair time sucked. Got a loaner. Tesla Service was awesome.

    Loaner for sure. I'll take it in tomorrow.

    Maybe you're in the wrong car and your car is still in the parking lot...

    Of course when I got in the car this morning to drive to the service center it was working.

    I cant wait until our new head of software turns my car into an appliance.

    I am also sure that the next time it stops working will likely be when I need it the most. UGGGG.

    Same thing happened to me. Bring up something else on the touchscreen, then go back to GPS. That's what fixed it for me.

    Next time it happens I'll try that....thank you!

    You left your GPS antenna at the gym? It needed a few hours more workout. ;-)

    I wish the GPS antenna would have been able to talk the Wifi Antenna into a workout. That Wifi antenna is weak AF.

    Did you get it fixed, same thing happened to me today?

    I recently had this happen while driving - had to reboot 3 times but it finally fixed itself and hasn't happened since.

    No luck, restarted 4 times, gave it a night to recover but it's still sleeping. Probably died :(

    I had luck resetting GPS by pressing the directional logo in the upper right (first to North Only, then back to showing car going UP on the screen). This reset it, and now it works fine.

    Did that, no luck.

    Call support. They might be able to do something OTA.

    Did that too, waiting for the SC to get back to me.
    Thank you

    You might want to have the SC to take a look. I had an intermittent problem like yours. Mentioned it to SC when I was there for regular service. Their immediate reaction is they will check the antenna. They found that wire to the antenna was bent that caused the intermittent problem. Fixed it and it's fine since.

    I had a faulty GPS antenna that started out as an intermittent problem but became consistent. Service center fixed it.

    I have been able to unstick mine by changing the map zoom level. Doesn't always work though.

    My GPS stopped updating (i guess) today. It still thinks it is in the Safeway parking lot. Well, I think it thinks it is in the Safeway parking lot.

    Maybe I'm not understanding the map display in the Android app. The bottom of the screen has my current location (+/- one house), but the map is showing the Safeway a few miles away. Is that my phone's current location? Seems like that, since it offers to help me navigate to my car.

    I rebooted with both scroll wheels once already. I guess its time to call the service center.

    I've had my Sept 2016 MS60D in the service center twice for this issue. First time they replaced my MCU after just 2 weeks of ownership. Problem came back earlier last week and I dropped car back for service. The current diagnosis is a week/faulty rear GPS antennae which requires a new rear hatch glass. Part will be in next week. Rocklin, CA Service Center is great. They gave me a P85 loaner and are paying for the tint on the new glass hatch once repair is done.

    When I got in the car this morning, GPS was still at the wrong place, but by the time I brought google maps up on my phone, the car had figured out where it was. Maybe Tesla service fixed it remotely. Maybe it just fixed itself. Whatever. I'm happy again.

    Had my car for three weeks, and I got the same issue.
  • My GPS has stuck yesterday in my MX. Still stuck.
    I wonder if it's a coincidance that I was using Supercharger for a first time (normally charging at home), and 30 minutes later GPS got stuck.
    During charging the screen got somewhat hot., maybe this caused the malfunction.
    Did you observe if your malfunction occured shortly after supercharging ?

    I've had the GPS stuck maybe twice in 4+ years. Both times it recovered on its own, but you should try a reboot (hold both scroll wheels in for 15 seconds until the center screen goes black). It will restart and in about 60 seconds be back online. GPS may take an additional short time (1-2 minutes) to reacquire lock.

    Being at a Supercharger likely has nothing to do with it.
