Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

The cause is the GPS antenna.

These are often broken during these years of manufacture. Either they do not receive enough satellites, which leads to a shift of the position on the map by several hundred miles, or they do not receive any satellites anymore, in which case the position on any point on the map remains fixed.

To solve the problem the GPS antenna must be replaced. In very rare cases the antenna cable from the radio to the antenna is also defective. But this is very rare, so first of all only the antenna should be replaced.

I would be very happy about a rating with 3-5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
