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?

Please do a U turn, as soon as possible.
Hope you get it sorted
