As the title states, the Alpine nav system in my 2014 can't seem to connect to the satellites and show my location. If I tap the spinning globe it shows a whole list of satellites with decent signal but it's not connecting. I can't find anything about this in the owner's manual for the head unit. Do I need to reset the head unit somehow, or check the physical antenna connection, or...? Any help is appreciated.

Its happened to my stock Alpine once or twice over the years. Especially after sitting in the garage for a long period of time (over winter). I reboot it using a paperclip and the small reboot button on the lower right corner of the unit. Mine is an INA W900.

Reset button did the trick. It's behind the removable button block on the later Alpine head unit. I don't know why i made a thread for this... :rolleyes:

Actually, this has been useful for me. Mine has been intermittent. If it doesn't want to receive satellites, I get a single beep from the unit as I am starting off. I'll give it a rest/time out and it works again. I thought it might be an intermittent contact from the antenna but I think the reset trick might work for me as well.
