    Navigator V - No speed or heading while in cradle

    Hi all,

    The past few weeks I've been having a weird problem with my Navigator V on my '14 R1200RT... While in the cradle on the bike, the GPS charges just fine (except when the unit randomly decides it's been removed from the cradle while I'm going down the road) but it doesn't think I'm moving (the speed field on the display shows a constant 0) and it doesn't have a heading either, thinking I'm always facing 0 degrees. The unit does, however, have my correct location at all times...

    I've tried removing and re-seating the unit tons of times with no real success. A factory reset didn't do anything. I haven't pulled my dash apart yet to check if the wiring for the GPS connector has gone bad, was hoping someone might have seen this before and have some insight.

    Just a thought, have you tried cleaning the cradle connections?

    Second that. Try contact cleaner. A few years ago my Nav V was acting funny. I cleaned the contacts and it took care of the problem.

    Knew it had to be something simple!

    Yep, you guys were spot on, I don't know why I didn't even think of this - a spritz or two of contact cleaner on both the GPS and bike pins and it's working like new again. I even managed to get it to sync with my laptop finally courtesy of a cheap USB 2.0 adaptor on Amazon, to boot! Thanks again!
