Hi Paul,

Does your XF have a disc in the boot?  If so, it will be the same as the s type.  Try ejecting the disc and putting it back in and keep your fingers crossed.  Then make sure your Sat Nav is in the UK.

Let me know how it goes.

Regards,

Peter.

That's a pity, Paul.

With a bit of luck and XK/XJ owner with a similar year might come along.

Peter.

I have a 2013 model as well Paul, with the HDD your sat Nav should initialise only for a few seconds and then show the warning regarding using it while te vehicle is in motion one you press I agree it starts up.  I also updated the maps to 2018 which is the latest release it made a big difference although the upgrade is supplied on a USB Memory Stick and takes between 2.30mins and 3.00 hours o update (best done on a long drive).  Sounds like you have a fault in yours.

Hi

I have updated the satnav in my 2014 xf with a usb from navi-expert.com. It was £95 but the download was smooth and lasted 2.5 to 3 hours.

Mine did this once - I reset the car by disconnecting the battery for a while - That fixed it.
