    Press NAV INFO and check the amount of sats received. Possible loss of satelites or speed pulse, what car do you have and how old is it?

    The antenna has fallen down from where you fitted it or it is faulty.

    If you find as Craig has stated, get some double sided sticky pad tape, put 3 layers on the rear of antenna as its a curved dash area & stick it next to the passenger side air vent right side, to the left of the airbag above the glovebox, never had 1 budge from there since started fitting these & always gives best reception there, for what they are.
