Sat Nav Problems


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Just bought my 1st Freelander a TD4 HSE Auto on an 06 plate. I love the car but having a slight problem with the Sat Nav. When I enter the route and then start it says on the screen, calculating route and stays like this all the time. I am not too bothered if there is a problem as I bought the Freelander from a main dealer so have a 1 year Landrover warranty with it, but I didn't want to take it in if it is just me doing something wrong. I have checked the drive and it plays CD's with no problem at all also the Sat Nav disc seems okay, there are some very fine scratches on it but I wouldn't have thought they were bad enough to cause a problem.

I never had a SatNav on a Freelander; as far as I know some other cars have the satnav "player" located somewhere else in the car (eg in the trunk), are you sure that the navigation disk it should be played by the audio unit?

If the answer is positive, I would try to make a copy of the dik (assuming it is not protected) so I could test this way if the scratches are not the problem.

It has gone into Lookers Landrover today, they have had the dashboard out, it turns out it's corrosion in the loom. They have ordered a new loom, luckily it is covered under the Landrover Approved Warranty I have with the vehicle otherwise I dread to think what it would have cost me.
