Default lost my gps chip in my steering column...

I dropped my gps chip into my steering wheel column - how unlucky. Where the hell is it now? Does it lead to anything specific or do I have to tear the entire car appart to maybe find it?

you'll probably have to open up your steering column to get to it. i've never done that before so goodluck.

did it just fall under the plastic? if so, you should be able to take the plastic off with a few screws. there is a bunch of wiring under there so good luck finding it.
