No GPS
« on: 06 June 2021, 19:08 »
Hey golf crew.

I have a 2018 golf gti pp. Having issues with the GPS. I'm unable to change the time on the car at all, even manually. And I also have an issue with the sat nav not locating me properly. It locates me 4 or 5 hours away from my actual location.

Has anyone experienced this or know of a simple solution to resolve the annoying issue?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thanks for the response. I didn't have this issue before as I've changed the time previously and used the nav. That's why it was a bit of a  :huh: moment for me.

Is the aerial loose on the roof? I’ve heard that before

@vwjap I've checked the aerial and it seems fine. No play in it at all.
