Navigation Issues & Push to Start Resolved

Navigation doesnt work now. The compass works, but when your driving, your screen is just spinning around... you never move forward. Another weird thing is that the GPS time update doent work... then again, neither does the manual time update. They are both the wrong time, even when saved.
Any ideas?

P.S. if anyone has push to start failure, it could be related to a cord by the spare tire. In my case, the rear bumper was taken off for a paintjob and accidentally, this cord/connector was ripped out. You would never know where it came from or what it does, however, this cord is related to the push to start. It is very easy to pull 0ut that cable. IT IS NOT VERY EASY TO RE-INSTALL IT........ I managed... although it works, its not perfect.... I should have it replaced shortly. Chrysler would have charged $220 minimum

These two issues are in no way related... the nav wasnt working before the PTS failure.

Make sure your compass setting is correct, As for the wire, it's in the back under the trim piece back there. Remove it and plug the wire in, not that difficult. A pain to figure out though.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Yes, I'm on the 3 year 2018 better be a hellcat Jeep.
