What's this?

Post by Spence » Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:10 pm



I have a "new" to me 2010 GL with 2400 miles. USA model with Nav. Just to the left of the odometer reading I sometimes see a teepee/tent shaped icon come up with a frame around it. It looks very similar to the camping icon on a map. I can't figure out what and when it appears to take a picture. I thought it may be an indicator that I was close to a campground through the nav system but it didn't appear when I was near one. I couldn't find anything in the owner manual either.
What say ye?

Thanks,
Spence

It is probably part of your TPMS (tire pressure management system). I think that one should come on during a self check when first starting.

You're right that the TPMS light comes on when first started but then goes off. This comes on with no reason after riding for some time. It's not as bright as the other icons and appears somewhat hazy but still there left of the odometer reading. After I stopped and shut down for about 45 minutes it went away and didn't re-appear for the rest of the ride which was about another hour.

I believe what you are seeing is the weather alert icon. (see page 52 of the navi manual)

Yup, that's it! It was threatening to rain while I was out so good job.
Thanks again,
