    Hi
    ive just been out for a drive and have found the sat nav is not picking up my current position. It's the 8v and sd card based. Is there anyway to reset it?

    cheers

    Sounds like the GPS antenna has failed, get your dealer to take a look at it.

    B5NUT you were correct - it was the antenna. Had it replaced under warranty.

    I've got a B7 A4 with RNS-E, and seem to have the same symptom. I don't want to spend anything on it, as it's about to be part-ex'd. Is there any sort of reset I can do to try and get it working on a short-term fix?
