Despite providing co-ordinates, if the satelite icon is red its means there isn't a signal.

The co-ordinates are probably changing because the system can also operate from sensors relating to vehicle speed, direction and turn angle. This is the systems back-up when in tunnels and out of normal signal.

I'm pretty sure its the GPS antenna.

What do other people think?
