Sat Nav Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All,  Newbie here.   Got into my 2008 X Type estate last week and put an address into the Sat nav.

It was calculated and i told it to set as destination and start.   as i moved off from Home, the Nav seemed to move off the roads i was on!

It now believes i am actually 40 ish mile southwest of where i am.  I have gone into the menu and reset my location, but as i move off it goes wrong again.

Anyone got any ideas.    I've also removed and reinserted the disc.

Thanks

Tony

Hi Tony,

I have given this some thought and the only solution I could think of you have already done, ie Disc Removal and resetting location.

Maybe the disc needs cleaning?

Regards,

Peter.

If I recall correctly, Denis had this problem with Stacey's S-Type. Unfortunately, I can't remember how it was rectified. I'll ask him.

Spoken to Denis. Stacey's sat nav problem was solved by going into map options and dragging the cursor across the map in stages until it was sitting in precisely the right position then hitting the "OK" button.

Is that what you've tried already?

Hi this is easily fixed go into vehicle menu then calibration this allows you to move the cursor to exactly your position then just save it really is simple and is explained in the X Type handbook if you don't have a copy let me know and i will photocopy the pages for you,  I also upgraded my satnav disc to 2012 version works perfectly and has newer maps than that found on the 2008 disc again if you need help PM me davecox3@icloud.com
