7 posts • Page 1 of 1
Driving my excellence to work this morning (Odo 5500 miles) the sat nav decided to loose the plot, literally. the road I was driving on just moved off the screen to the right? I still had a map on the screen but it did not correspond to my location. stopped the car, turned the info system off, removed and refitted the SD card, restarted the system all without success any suggestions?
Reboot the unit by pressing and holding in the left hand button for 10-15 seconds or so

I've found that when your position is no longer on the screen there is a symbol on the right side, looks like a rectangle/outline of the car as seen from above with 4 inward pointing arrows around its edge. Pressing that centralises your position on the map.
Hi Grahamn, thanks for the advice. I had the opposite, my position was still in the center of the screen but the map just didn't match my location. I'll try the ten second reset on my way home from work and see if that solves the issue.
I hope it will but i’m afraid even the reset won’t work . This is / was a known error in the VAG sat nav’s. I’ ve had it in my 13 octavia as well. Press the side nav button again and check the quantity of satellites you have to be sure ? ( this works for the octavia) it won’t help you with your problem but you can go to your dealer and show him so they can replace the faulty part.
