Hi there Berry ,thanks

Ok if you hold nav and menu buttons together

it will take you to another menu

Select GPS information , this will show how many satellites you are receiving

You need minimum of 6 to enable correct operation

In most cases berry the issue is the sat nav base (Aieral base )

The only test you can do is to check for 5 volts at the centre pin of the GPS antenna wiring

If 5 volts are present then the gps antenna base should be replaced

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue Berry please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you

If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE MY ANSWER

Kind regards ***** ***** and have a evening
