    IGO Primo Altitude not changing in my IGO Primo 9

    Dear community,

    When I go to the GPS monitor menu, I can see the latitude, longitude and Altitude changing in each place I am BUT, on the navigation screen (side bar), the altitude that is shown, either is ZERO or a value that never changes until I turn off/on the ignition. If I go up the hill the lat and Long changes BUT the altitude never changes during the trip.
    I already made a reset on the GPS monitor menu but doesn't changes anything. Altitude never changes ...

    Is there any sys.txt command that forces altitude update?

    Thank you.

    The skin is the original one from IGO PRIMO 9.
    As said, I have a good satellite signal (10 satellites at same time) and I can see the altitude changing on the GPS setup if I'm driving. The issue here is that the navi soft is not updating the altitude on the navigation screen.
    The altitude is shown when I start the nav but never changes until the next restart. It doesn't work either with route running nor without route.
    For sure I can post screen shots but I think it doesn't help, because you will see a value for altitude BUT that value doesn't changes even if I climb the highest hill, you know?
    Do you recommend to change the skin? What skin do you recommend?

    Thank you.

    I don't need to see the altitude changing, but what I need to see is the screen with the problem. Better yet make a video of the problem. I don't use your proggy and each proggy has its own skin. And repeating what I said, if you see it working in GPS status* screen and doesn't see it in navigation, it's a skin problem (it's the skin that's responsible for showing/updating it). Don't confuse having a route with simulation. I can have a route then drive or run simulation on it, so a route has nothing to do with your problem. Simulation doesn't get altitude data because it's not processing any data coming from GPS receiver. You seem to have a lot of problems/issues with your proggy. I wonder if others who downloaded it and used it have similar problems.

    * I'm assuming your "GPS setup" (there is no such screen) is GPS status, that's why I asked for snapshot of that screen

    ... and you're right ...it's GPS status!

    Please give me your opinion.

    thanks.

    Hi Easy,

    I'm using the Original DEM that came with the IGO PRIMO sdcard. Should I change it?
