GPS Time

I went for a ride today and noticed that the time on my bike's (2014 RT) display did not match my GPS. The bike was still on daylight savings time. I don't remember having to set this in the past. Checking the setting on the RT, it was set to GPS Time: On. Shouldn't the two times always remain synced? Not a big deal but I'm curious what I'm missing.

Re: GPS Time

I had the same issue the other day, something I attributed to having the bike sit for about 3 months. Took about 10 minutes before it "caught up".

Later on, I connected the Nav VI to my PC and opened Garmin Express and there were several updates, some concerning DST and such.

Those who say that it can't be done shouldn't interrupt those who are doing it.

Democrats are to America what mold is to bread.

I was just about to say the same thing. We are on Daylight savings time at present and I noticed that the GPS was reading NZST but the bike was showing NZDST. I could find no setting in the GPS to change this except to take it off automatic and change the time. The bike reads the time off the GPS so something is haywire.
Also my GPS never loses signal unless I am going through a long tunnel but yesterday it lost it about 40 times.

I updated the unit and di a factory reset but still not resolved. I think there is supposed to be a satellite update about now isn't there (apple said their phones wouldn't work if you didn't update due to this). Wonder if someone has dropped the ball?

Re: GPS Time

This is an issue with the Nav V only. BMW is working it. Per Garmin Rep the nav V and the Satalites aren't talking correctly to each other, has to do with the year in the Nav V. If you look at the World Clock app in the Nav V, you'll see the year is 2000. Time to fix is unknown........

Hope it is quicker than the time it took to fix the silent treatment after a shutdown. Should be an easy fix because it was working before and my other Garmin GPS's are not having any issues.

My Nav V had made the transition to standard time and was displaying the correct time, the RT display did not change to match it.

Re: GPS Time

My NAV VI & '18 R1200RT sync'd immediately.
I do weekly group rides w/ GPX files and NAV VI is updated when there is a new map or utility file before I load the new tracks.

Re: GPS Time

I had the same issue with my Nav 5... I thought I was going crazy because I know the GPS updates the bike.

Re: GPS Time

I've sent an email to Garmin regarding that issue. Their reply is that they are aware of it and are investigating. They don't have a time frame for resolution.
If you contact them through their support page, they will add you to the case. http://support.garmin.com/

Ride safe!

Re: GPS Time

I am using my NAV V on an old LT so no data to the bike. It does have the correct time but it thinks it is March of 2000. No Issue for me. Guess I'll report it to Garmin for another data point , like they need one more.

Re: GPS Time

Great. I just updated both of my NAV 5's to the latest version. Luckily it's winter here. Maybe they'll have a fix by the time I ride again.

It's not just the time that is the issue. It is not finding as many satellites as it used to. Mine was rock solid and only lost reception going through long tunnels. Now it is losing reception when there are a line of trees one one side of the road.

Yep, just confirmed mine is the same. Today is Wednesday, March 29th, 2000 according to my Nav V. How do you get to the satellite count view mode on this device?

If it's like other Garmin devices, press and hold the satellite bar in the upper left. A new screen should appear. I haven't tested it myself on the NAV 5.

Thanks for the quick reply. Turns out I was just pressing and not holding the signal bar long enough.

Re: GPS Time

My Nav V was correct but the RT had day light savings time on a ride to BBNP this past weekend. Annoying.

Re: GPS Time

Same results as the other posters. Odd, as the bike's clock used to reset for daylight savings automatically. It was just this last time change that the bike's clock did not automatically reset.

The answer is quite simple. The Nav V are reset to Apr 3 2000. We are still under DST with that date.

Ride safe!

Re: GPS Time

Seems Garmin have put out an update today. 3.50 is out but only says improved stability. They said they would send me an email when they fixed the time issue but haven't. Will test tonight when I get home from work and see if it fixes it.

BMW Motorrad Navigator V software version 3.50

Changes made from version 3.40 to 350:
Improved software stability.

Re: GPS Time

Okay yep the 3.50 version has fixed the time and I am back in 2019 in NZDT.
The Nav V was quite picky about the USB cable with only 1 of the 4 I have actually working with Garmin Express even though all the cables could see the drives on it.
