    Hi
    @DEGALYIAN
    Have you changed your car ??? Has it got a Metallized Heat reflecting windscreen, this can kill the satellite signal dead
    Some Cheapo Dash Cams have poor RF Shielding, the stray RF can also reduce the satellite signal
    Is the device set low down On or Behind the dashboard ???

    Have you tried a Soft/Drum roll restart on the device ??? This restarts the devices Operating System afresh

    Charge the device for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound then release the on/off button.
    You won’t lose anything; it’s just like rebooting your PC
    I use a Soft/drum-roll start after any upgrade large or small.
    It’s also useful to keep in mind for sorting out most minor niggles....
