Question GPS! Red Satellite & Disc but we have Signal and we are in the sea

Hi all,

I have a similar problem to most of the other users on the forum with GPS failure, but mine is different. The GPS was working fine then it put us in the middle of the ocean and refused to load or show maps.

Now it shows destination maps no problem but signal is still red and so is the disc and TMC is green "TMC_INFO". I've gone into "Emergency" while driving and the GPS co-ordinates change as we move, so we must be getting a signal.

I've tried removing the power, holding M & C etc, checked the cables but no joy. I don't think it's the shark fin as I say, we have GPS co-ordinates, no doubt about it. I've changed the disc from the up to date VDO one I have back the the original Carminat and that didn't help.

Any ideas please?
