    Exclamation Problems with the GPS on the AS-6587G radio

    Hi, I got a Duble-Din GPS radio off of Ebay " Oskaramerica " who does not sell these anymore.

    Model AS-6587G and I love it but it's not without problems. I would like to know if there are sites that offer proper help in working with these radio systems. The GPS runs WM5.0 and is in Chinese.
    Ther Firmware needs to be updated on this radio since it has a problem with the time in the GPS. This makes it a little flaky at getting my location. I do have it working with IGo8.3 and it run great
    when it runs but I would like to know if there are firmwares available to update the GPS in it or if I'm the only one with this problem.


    Thanks

    This is your DDIN?



    look's great coz support steering button functions...
    I've never heard about a firmware upgrade for DDIN...
    great if the answer yes...

    but I think your problem is due to the memory of the watch..
    does it come with a rom battery? try to change it.. might be your battery is dead...
    just a suggestions...

    Yes this is my radio .. I realy like it but there was a change in the GPS timings made about a year ago and all the GPSs with the chipset like mine were affected. There were firmware updates made on other GPSs that fixed this but I could not find one that worked on min. The local clock is OK .. problem is with the GPS software that get the time from the GPS streem ..

    are you sure it's a firmware thing? I believe it might be more of a wince timezone problem. anyways, with certain gps softwares, the time should set the system time according to where you are after it gets a gps signal lock.

    Re: Problems with the GPS on the AS-6587G radio

    This is the Double Din Head unit i've got from Ebay.
    I'm running Tom Tom on it instead of IGO 8 as I found Tom Tom does lag as much as IGO. (Might due to I've added too many POI)
    Anyway, I'm having the same problem as you on the Time issue. It's always 2hrs slower than what it should be.
    I tried to fix this by changing the time on the system firm ware (the screen where you can choose which file to run. that screen can be reach by simply exiting the program or start your GPS software without the SD card, should by typical for most of the china units)

    And when I re-run tom tom & Igo8 again, the time seems to be correct, however after a while, the time will automatically go back to what it was before. .
    My guest is the time is obtained via GPS on these software, hence the time will automatically updated everytime you started up the GPS program.

    I've also tried to change the time zone on the unit as well, but that didn't seems to fix the problem.

    Anyway, i'm only writing to share my experience on tackling this problem but with no luck T.T...I hope there are someone who can give us a hand here.

    I'm using DDIN 7" also from china..
    but didn't run to this problems...
    Is the time on GPS bother you much?

    yes gps does send their time also.
    in iGO, you can set your time zone

    another question..
    is the time will revert back after you exit the gps or it will still remain until you start your gps again?

    I also have a 7" ddin unit from china, and igo is the only software that runs flawlessly with no problem or lagging. Tom Tom & Garmin have lots of lagging and the time issue happens only with tom tom.

    Re: Problems with the GPS on the AS-6587G radio

    I have the same units as yours (Audiosources AS-6587G and Erising ES962D). I think the time problem is generated by TomTom. I use several software for navigation - iGO8.3.4, iGO Amigo, Garmin XT, Sygic, NDrive, Mireo BlackEdition, controlled by SystemInformation. I had no problem synchronizing time with any of them (btw iGO, and probably other software, have the option to syncronize GPS Time whit Local Time). Well, no problems until I changed SystemInformation shell whit WolfNCU... But I solved the time synchronization problem with a small script (MortScript) :

    RegWriteDWord("HKLM","Software\Microsoft\Clock","A utoDST","1")
    Run("\StorageCard\TimeCor\szt.exe"," /t2 /en")
    folder = SystemPath("ScriptPath")
    Run( "\StorageCard\WolfNCU\WolfNCU.exe" )

    download this archive extract and copy in the root of your Sd card. open TimeCor.mscr whit Notepad and edit the lines:

    Run("\StorageCard\TimeCor\szt.exe"," /t2 /en") where t1=GMT+1, t2=GMT+2.....en - regional settings

    Run( "\StorageCard\WolfNCU\WolfNCU.exe" ) change the path to the your navi app, e.g. "\StorageCard\iGO8.3.4\iGO8.exe"

    In the navigation setings of your unit point the path to TimeCor.exe

    Cheers,
