Hi.. I have tried to recalibrate as per instructions ( driving 3 - 10 miles ) and this stays at 0% no matter how far I drive , so assuming have no satellite signal . When typing in destination for sat nav ,unit is not able to identify where I amI think unit is travel pilot touch screenRegards

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
