hi,can anyone tell me why the gps symbol is red and my car can't find itself!?
Don't be so hasty to find an aerial - I had the same problem and fixed it for £2.49.
Buy two clips to remove your sat nav unit, unplug all the wires at the rear (1 of them is a funny locking device that takes a bit of working out, but is easy when you realise how) and leave it disconnected for a minute or so. This is similar to disconnecting a printer from a computer so that it forgets all the print jobs in the print queue.
Then put it back together and after about 15 minutes of driving, if you're lucky it will sort itself out.
The rationale behind this is twofold - firstly trying to force a reboot, and secondly based on info in the handbook that it can take up to 15 miinutes to relocate enough satellites. If you want the diagnostics code, it is 4112.
Let us know how you get on.
