Quadra / Septa XM won't update

The XM seems to be connected to the Septa / Quadra but it never shows new weather. It will even report that it is receiving new files if you tap the XM signal strength area.

The issue is that if it receives a new weather file before the GPS has acquired and locked, the time in the unit is bogus and the software will think the weather files are from 2031. Any “new” files received from XM appear to the software to be older than the file it thinks it received in 2031 so the new files never get used.

To fix this follow this procedure precisely.

· Tools > XM Settings - press DISABLE XM

· Tools > XM Settings – press FLUSH WEATHER CACHE

· Tools > EXIT Anywhere Map.

· Reboot the machine AFTER exiting Anywhere Map.

· Run Anywhere Map.

· WAIT for the GPS to know where you are with a 3D fix.

· TOOLS > ENABLE XM

Now it will work properly.

When AWM starts up it should warn you if XM is trying to start before the GPS has acquired, DO NOT select for XM to start before you know the GPS has a lock (and thus the date/time is updated).
