jemarin is an unknown quantity at this point

...It's not lost in the sense that it is missing. It "thinks" it's someplace that it's not. Here's the deal... I've got a 99 528i that I bought used and it came with the OEM GPS Navigation option. As of a week ago it worked perfectly but just recently, the darn thing thinks it's 30 miles from where it really is. It's completely disoriented and it thinks that East is North.

Anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to set it straight?



Thanks in advance for your help!

Have you pulled the disc out of the trunk and reinserted? Do you have the disc for your region? If not, sounds like you in for a trip to the dealer.
