It might for you, because you appear to be on version 1.0 Version 1.1 added the option to use SAS and chirp.
You can check which version you have by renaming your Config.Txt file to something like oldConfig.txt and turning your device on for a few seconds. A new config file will be created with the version at the top of it.
Leaving the Max_Dist set to zero is not recommended as a long term solution. Setting it to about 10,000 is a safety measure to prevent you from being directed to an incorrect/invalid location.
It's so easy to update I'd recommend installing the latest.
