Four days ago I traded my 2004 6i, and got a 2006s Grand Sport, with all the goodies. The Navigation System doesn't find any satellite. (the GPS doesn't find my position, I have to calibrate and recalibrate always; I don't have to do this because is automatic)I called NAVTEQ and they told me that maybe the Gps antenna is disconnected or Blocked. What do you think guys?, and where is the GPS located in the car?

Why not just go to the dealer?

Yeah seriously -- "Under Warranty" translates into "FIX IT DAMNIT, FIX IT NOW!".

Not too many 2006 owners here so we dont have NAVI (you bastard) so your not going to find much help, just bring it to the dealer and have them deal with tech support.

Ok Guys, I went to the dealer. It took three days to find the GPS didn't have ....ANTENNA. They took the antenna from another car and fixed mine. Now everything works good
