Unhappy 2001 740iL Navigation Problem

Last week, My Navigation system stop communicating with the Satilite. It shows my car stuck in a field. Is there a way to re-calibrate the system?

Weird problem. Have you tried ejecting the CD/DVD from the navigation unit and then reinserting it to see if that makes any difference.

Thanks Brittski for replying.... However, After the Unit had stopped communicating for over a week. Somehow, It started back working on it's own yesterday... Yes, I've tried removing the CD and resetting it back into the CD Tray a couple of times... It never worked,

You're right, it weird. When I started the car up yesterday, while waiting on it to warm up, I tried the Navigation System and Whalla!!!! It started back working.... AMAZING!!!!!

I have no idea of what caused the issue or what's going on.... However, I still wonder if anyone else has expericenced the same issue, I surely can't be the only one.......

Thanks for you help.....
