sat nav help!
Just got my 147 the other day. Not sure if my Sat nav is working correctly...
It is a new car (dont know if this matters) but now onto my problem...
It doesnt seem to be able to locate me automatically (I dont know if I am doing this wrong), but it seems I have to put my address in where I am, and then press locate. Then I have to point the arrow in the direction I am facing.
Then I insert my detination, and it plots the route correctly.
When I start driving though, after a little bit, say 30 seconds, the map resets and puts me somewhere in the middle of Ireland (bearing in mind I am in Nottingamshire UK) and loses all my directions.
It is almost as if the satellites dont know where I am unless I tell them where I am...
Is there a way where the satellites know where you are and what direction you are facing?
BTW, I have the UK and Ireland cd 2001.
Out of trying the sat nav for about 16 journeys, I have only had 1 work and take me there, but even for that one, I had to put in where I was and locate and point myself in the right direction.
Am I messing up here, or should I take it to Alfa?
