X-15 GPS losing signal

2 posts in this topic

I know there have been way to many post on these X-15's, even as a owner I don't read all of them, but thanks to you who are reading this one. THe reason for this post it that My WAAS enabled GPS X-15 system has a mind of its own. I was in Canada last week and was in the middle of a Hail storm, flying down the lake, it work perfect, but when I am sitting still with no clouds in the sky it losses it's signal. It will work fine for 3-4 hours and then stop working for 20 minutes then work fine again. I am wonder if it is not a tech problem because once it loses its position it has never found it again and shortly there after "the gps module quits responding". Now I have about three things I am going to do before I get Lorwance involved.
1. I think that the GPS DATA transfer (attached to the power cable) Get wet in the Tape job I did and I need to re tape them

2. complete the newest Lorwance up date

3. I think My GPS reciever has somethng wrong with it like when the sun is directly on it it heats up and shorts out. SO I guess I would have to try a new one.

Is there any other Ideas out there?????

Thanks

Losing signal is very common from what I hear!! Your about the tenth person Ive heard say this in the last week!! I have an X-15 and it loses waas occasionally! But no biggy there! I don't lose GPS signal though!! I have been told by a dealer that if you are losing signal there is a chip/card inside unit that comes loose! All you must do is call lowrance and they will give you shipping instructions! You will have a new unit in about 4 DAYS!! But don't mess around with your current unit, because it sounds like its messed up!! Just send it in!!

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
