No effective starting point

Postby winson29lee » Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:09 pm

I am currently using PaPaGo Z1
Software: PaPagO!S1.0 Build: Mar 15 2013 (17:02:15)
Map Switch: MFM PPG Version 8-6-15

When I press the "Navi" button in my device home screen, it only show a car with blank background. When I try to search for location and unable to set as destination as received error or "No effective starting point".

Please advise on the issue!!!

Have the GPS locked onto the satellite signals? It could be anywhere on Earth with no roads to route.
If yes, did you install any map for the location you are in?

Hope this helps... cheers!
