      Navigation location problem

      Anyone have a fix or encountered your gps showing your location 600 miles away from where your at? I live in NC and my location is showing me in New York. I know itís a older gps but I would like it to function correctly. I do have the correct disc loaded into the changer. Thanks!

      Try into the hidden menu and correct the GPS via RTI screen.

      Which disc do you have loaded? Mine did that when I had the central disc in instead of eastern.... Can also try leaving it for a few minutes powered on in an open area stationary to see if it gets a satellite fix. You can check in the RTI menu if it has a GPS fixed but can't match it to the map on the disc.

      Upside is even if the navigation computer is busted, it's an easy replacement. I replaced mine with a junkyard unit and it works perfectly now

      This was a replacement unit from Erie Volvo, there has to be the antenna for the gps somewhere, I guess it could be the same as the radio too

      Is your GPS acting normal except for the location? There's a detailed deep menu that actually shows your real-time coordinates, let me find it tomorrow and I can tell you how to get to it. The thing that says Volvo navigation system is your entire GPS brain.

      I seen in the menu the longitude and latitude and it showing that. I guess itís picking something up but in the wrong location. Let me know if you find something that can be changed

      I didnít check it to see, will do that tonight. If they donít match, would that tell me I need a new antenna?

      In my case I needed a new disc. Do you have the 2014/15 discs?
