    Default SatNav Lost / Out of calibration

    After a recent body repair by VX dealer (new bonnet, windscreen and a few scratches) after a small bumb, my CD70 satnav is now about 1 or 2 miles out of sync! It basically thinks i'm in the wrong place....

    VX body shop claim they haven't touched it, but need to book it in at service centre...... but before i go down that route, is there a way to calibrate back to the correct positon???

    Cheers !

    Yep, just don't move the car for a short period, let it locate the satellites, and all will be well.

    Sadly, Tried numerous times (hence the long delay in my responce), but no joy.

    It will work for 1 or 2 days, and the go wrong again. Also, the "GPS" graphic is crossed on the main display, which the manual says "low signal".....

    Does it mean that the Antenna is up the creak ??

    Cheers !
