    Help please sat nav problem

    I have just had my car returned to me after 2 weeks off the road. Today I used the car on a long journey and selected the map function on the display. The triangle which represents the car is being displayed but in a completely different town (60 miles away) When I turn in a particular direction the triangle would turn too. Its like the car's location in relation to the map needs to be reset. I've had a good look through the manual but I cant see anything which can help me.

    Any help would be appreciated as the nearest OPC is 90mins drive away.

    Re: Help please sat nav problem

    I had the situation where the map didn't update but when I checked Lat/Long it was updating. I found a screen on nav options that allowed resetting to factory defaults and that fixed it. Not sure if I can find the screen again or what caused the problems - all I know is it works now. Good luck.

    are you sure you haven't been abducted by aliens and just don't realize it? is there an odd smell?

    Re: Help please sat nav problem

    Try resetting to factory defaults? Try ejecting then re inserting the CD from the navigation module/cd player in the trunk?

    Gotta be something simple. Fingers crossed.

    I had a similar problem.
    The nav showed my position to be about 30 mi. from where I actually was.
    It turned out to be the nav. antenna and the dealer replaced the antenna .

    How can you be so sure that your nearest OPC is 90 mins away if your sat nav has a 60 mile error built into it?

    OK, I'll understand if you cannot see the funny side of that question.

    Re: Help please sat nav problem

    Sometimes a drive around for 15 mins or so will give the satnav the opportunity to realign itself with the satellite-provided information.

    Re: Help please sat nav problem

    Ive driven it now for a week and it has not reset.

    The OPC says they will come and collect the car for me as it sounds like its the antenna thats broke.
