    Hello,

    I retrofitted a RNS E to my A3 Sportback last week, and I love it!

    I have placed the GPS antenna on top of my glovebox and the satnav always thinks I'm about 50 meters to the left all the time!

    It's so annoying and sometimes thinks I'm on different roads if the roads are close together.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    How many satelites are you picking up?

    Press NavInfo and find out how many you are receiving.

    5-6 is plenty, I would just give it a run and let it calibrate

    Okay, thanks.

    To be honest, I haven't used it much since fitting it so you're probably right.

    Thanks

    Yeah I had that problem for about a week.

    Needs to settle in and calibrate.
