Loud "POP" and then no GPS
« on: February 21, 2018, 10:09:01 AM »
Recently, my Parrot Asteroid Smart (running Sygic Maps) was operating properly with the FM radio playing when I heard a loud "POP" on the audio and the system rebooted. When it came back up, the home page was visible on the LCD screen but the Sygic Maps app icon had had disappeared. When selected, the FM receiver plays normally. The GPS mode is simply gone.

I haven't started a really deep investigation into what happened beyond the usual superficial troubleshooting steps.

Before I begin a deep dive into problem solving, has anyone else experienced this event and, if so, what did you do to resolve it?

I love my Parrot Asteroid Smart (although the FM function is terrible, at least in my car) and I don't want to get another in-dash GPS unit.

Help, please!
