I've got a bit of an issue with the Sat Nav. It's hardly crucial but it's a bit annoying. The location keeps resetting to London, and it takes about 45 minutes to an hour for the system to pick up the location. Once it's on, it's perfect - but then the system loses the location when you switch off. I'm running the latest disk that OB sent me, and stupidly I threw out the old one so I can't test but the problem only started a few weeks after I swapped disks.
Has anyone else had something like this before?

Thanks Chris, I appreciate it. It would be nice to eliminate the disk before trying to trace wires.

I'd be looking at a bad connection to the GPS antenna, which, according to RAVE, is under the plastic bit at the lower RH side of the windscreen.

Thing is, in the diagnostics menu it's seeing satellites - just not working out where it is. It's like it's going from scratch each time instead of reading the almanac data to get a head start. And then after an hour or so it gets a fix and tracks perfectly after that.

But yes - it's still worth checking that antenna connection. Thanks :)
