Title: 900 - GPS problem
Post by: AndrewNZ on April 21, 2021, 10:24:01 PM
Hi

I have the GPS working well and have used it on most rides with good results but frustratingly I have found the if I set a destination and stop along the way, usually for coffee, when I re-start the bike the GPS does not continue and I have to enter the destination again, its not a big issue but wondered if anyone had found a way around it that I have missed?

Having just returned from a two day 670 kms trip to Kaikoura I set the GPS up prior to leaving home without any problems and every time I stopped I was able to re-link it easily but when I came to leaving Kaikoura on day two it would not link at all it mattered not what I tried it was having none of it. I have emailed Triumph NZ and await a reply from them with hopefully the new of an upgrade to the My Triumph app which it seems is what is needed.
When it works it's great but being intermittent makes it quite hopeless.  :173:

Andrew,

I have had similar issues, sometimes the connectivity works other times not. Ive had the Bluetooth module software updated but i really don't think its up for the job, Ive reverted to Google maps on the phone as i was also getting conflict between the Bike and my Sena headset, also the volume never worked from the bike either. but it might be me being a Luddite (and thick)

Pity really as the connectivity module was one of the reasons i was happy going with the GTP.....

Hindsight is a wonderful thing

It should be Luddite proof Ripsi then we'd both be fine!
I am chatting with Triumph NZ who are being communicative and helpful so I shall let you know what they come up with.

Having had it confirmed by Triumph NZ that my GTP is all up to date and no downloads are required on advice from them I deleted the app and reloaded it and re-registered and hey presto all is well and on yesterday's ride the it performed without any issues at all, Every time I stopped and turned the bike off, petrol and coffee, it re-linked with no assistance from me. On the return trip it run as it did on the way there with several stops along the way, road works x 2 and an end of ride beer before heading home.

I believe NZ has the best motorcycling roads in the world including plenty of gravel if you want it.

The part that Henry Cole rode was the ride in the map above over the Takaka Hill to Collingwood if you are going to take a motorcycle trip abroad NZ is the place to experience great roads, scenery, trails, food and of course the people. If anyone is coming this was in the future let me know and I'll help your planning where I can and maybe meet up on the road somewhere.  :031:

Of course NZ is good but Scotland has also stunning roads as well - Due to visit nephew in NZ in a couple of years still thinking about putting a bike over

This is an NZ guy who seems to have it sorted from this end but I'm sure they do it in reverse too.

How long are you intending to come for?

Comparison to Scotland have been made many times and there is a large Scottish influence here just look at the town/city names in the South Island but I believe the weather here makes the difference.
