Please let us know in note section if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Development build. Thank you.

This has just begun happening to me in the latest version of the Development build.

Maybe its not an issue. In the editor I created a playable unit and unassigned its map and gps item. I clicked on Preview and got this "error" at the beginning of the mission, where you normally can see the map of the island. You can still click on Continue and play the mission.

It's simple: No map and no gps ---> no position data

It just means you have no map.

Negative, Mulle. I had my map open, which had been working fine prior, and suddenly my screen went black and I got the message "0004235: cannot connect to positioning system".

To solve your problem we need dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere please?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 2.097k, you can attach it here. Thank you.

Closing due to lack of info/response.

If this issue is still reproducable for you, please create a new ticket for it and be sure to include all necessary info/files.
