Troubleshooting

Here are a few things to try if you are having problems with your system, and common solutions:

Poor GPS reception, sometimes takes a long time to get a position lock and drops out frequently

USB 3.0 hubs are known to cause interference with GPS (and Wifi) signals. If you have a USB 3.0 hub make sure it is connected to the Odroid via a USB 2.0 cable which will force the hub into 2.0 mode and eliminate this problem. All cables supplied with the JagDroid systems are 2.0 cables, but if you have added an additional hub or replaced the USB cable, you will need to check this.

Poor Wifi signal and/or drops out frequently

USB 3.0 hubs are known to cause interference with Wifi signals.

Odroid doesn’t power off after 10 minutes

Occasionally after the first time the unit is installed and powered up, the internal CPU needs to reset before the auto-shutdown will work correctly. If you find that the system doesn’t shut down the Odroid after 10 minutes please disconnect the car battery for around 15 seconds then reconnect.

The A.MEM button doesn’t change to Android/Bluetooth audio

Occasionally after the first time the unit is installed and powered up, the internal CPU needs to reset before switching will work correctly. Please disconnect the car battery for around 15 seconds then reconnect.

I can’t find certain apps in the Google Play store

Please try an Odroid software upgrade: Go to the ‘Odroid Settings’ app, and choose Update. Follow the update process and check the Google Play store again.
