When you write "USB in the car" is that a simple charger only or is it a USB connection to the stereo as well?

Is there an app similar to GPS Essentials for iOS? It'd be useful as a test app to see what's going on when you connect to the radio.

Hi,
I'm having the same problem with my app radio 3. Appradioworld.com says that when the phone is hooked up to the head unit and using Waze, the stereo uses its internal gps and not the phone. Waze needs to make it optional on whether or not to use the head unit's gps or the iphone's gps.

I am noticing the same on my iPhone 5 when plugged in during the commute with the lighting adapter charging my device through my USB in the car then the GPS loses signal. It also does the same thing on my PC when the device is charging. Something definitely is not right. Waze works fine as long as I don't charge my phone. iOS Maps and Google Maps work regardless of charging state.

iPhone5 Lightning adaptor w/Pioneer drops GPS

Postby gldelx » Sat Mar 02, 2013 6:01 pm

I've posted this on Apple's support forum as well, but thought there was more likelihood of someone here having a similar setup and issue/solution.
I have a Pioneer AVIC-X930BT http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/GPS-Navigation/AVIC-X930BT with the 30-pin iPod/iPhone adaptor CD-IU51V http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Portable/iPod-And-Bluetooth-Accessories/CD-IU51V in my car.

I upgraded my iPhone4 to iPhone5 back in October and started using Waze about the same time. Since my commute is generally an hour+ each way, and I was ending up with a totally dead battery by the end of the day, I bought the Apple Lightning 30-pin adaptor after a couple months. I started noticing my GPS signal being dropped from anywhere from a few seconds to the entire drive so reinstalled iOS and it still did the same so took it into Apple and they decided after looking at the error logs it had a bad GPS antenna and replaced the phone. New phone does the same and I then realized it only does this when plugged in. I've tried to re-create this with the Lightning/30Pin when plugged in inside but can't. Only when in the car.
So if I reliably want to use Waze, I can't have it charging. :(
Have others powering an iPhone5 thru a Pioneer noticed this?

as much as I'd like to blame ATT, I don't think they have anything to do with it ;)
I assume the Pioneer cord has power spikes or something that jolt the GPS antenna

Without taking the dash out of the car and getting access to the USB on the other end of the pioneer adaptor cable, this is the only option in the car.

Mine stall out on all, but it's not as noticeable in the other apps since they don't have a banner that says the GPS signal was dropped like Waze provides.

Re: iPhone5 Lightning adaptor w/Pioneer drops GPS

I am having the same problem when I connect my iPhone 6 to my touch screen car head unit using hdmi and lightning cable, hence, at the same time, charging the phone.

I am using the latest iOS (8.3) and Waze version (3.9.4.5).

My GPS suddenly drops when I connect my lightning cable to my phone. I have to do this in order to mirror my Waze screen to my head unit and allow my head unit to control Waze, which works well, except that the GPS is dropped, and therefore my turn-by-turn navigation is severely affected.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Same here. Randomly losing GPS when charging thru USB in the car (even though it's a new 2.1A charger from Belkin)
