    2020 Raptor, Sync 3.4

    Over the last few days my Raptor shows my GPS location about 300-400 feet off the original location.

    Nothing really changed on my end, except I'm not driving it much nowadays. Is there a way to calibrate GPS, or add manual adjustments?

    Restart Sync, that fixed it for me. Its happened a few times and apparently when using Carplay it pushes the incorrect location through to the Waze/GoogleMaps/AppleMaps apps as well.

    How would you restart it? I tried turning the truck off, and on several times.

    The strange thing is that at home GPS is correct (within 20-30 feet), once I start driving, it gets out of whack pretty quick.

    I had the same issue on my '18. First, the Bluetooth dropped connection, then the GPS is off. Turned out it was the APIM unit for the infotainment that was bad, and replaced under warranty.

    Does the military think you have some sort of rocket launcher in back?

    Tried that. It didn't fix GPS, but got my mileage down :)

    Same thing Same thing they did with mine. They changed out that unit and fixed all the problems immediately. Now just waiting to see if the new unit is going to do the same.
