OK my Nav system gets lost on some days, then is exactly, perfectly right other days. One day this week I received 0-1 satellites while on a stretch of highway, today got 5-6-7 on the same road. <p>Already had the receiver replaced in the rear-roof, what next? The box under the drivers seat? Is it just the DVD player (which seems to be working fine) or is there a CPU in there?<p>Thanks...

Yes, that's the nav system, but it's very unlikly to need replacement. Did you have the shielding fix applied to the antennas? That has fixed most folks' similar problems.<p>Tom.

Yes the tape is on there. Its really strange, works fine for 3-4 days then craps out for 3-4 days. Over and over...<p>What exactly is the tape 'shielding' the receiver from? AM/FM? Cellphone towers? Etc...

Re: (rfkuehn)

I'm going through the exact same thing right now. My dealer is replacing components one by one until we can figure out what's malfunctioning. They have replaced the antenna array and some other wiring harness. So far it still acts up -- although not consistently.

Yesterday morning I was receiving 6-7-8 satellites. On the way home, dropped to 0 and the GPS got lost.<p>What's the next step on yours?

Another antenna/receiver I believe. Apparently there are two and they only replaced one. I'll get out the service records and tell you exactly what they say...
