2004 Cooper Sat Nav Issues?
New to the site here but hoping someone can help guide me!
2004 Cooper - had less than a year, no issues until last weekend - sat nav no longer picks up my location (sat nav screen fine i.e. functioning with audio and map/arrows, computer screen fine when off sat nav mode etc) - is still reading same location as last weekend which isn't anywhere really and tells me to 'follow the planned route' etc when I haven't got a route planned! So I have it just on computer mode now.
Took to local mini specialist garage on weekend (not dealer/trade) as the boot lock also went haywire and unlocked itself on motorway and wipers at back kept going even when on neutral setting.
In nutshell, the boot lock has corroded, we think from back screen wiper leaking over time so this has to be replaced (now have to open boot using lever under back seat!) but it is the sat nav that is the issue - garage said they had no idea what's wrong with it as it is coded to BMW so they said when it goes in for service next month, they will replace antennae/shark fin.
Has anyone else had similar and is this usually the problem?? It was working fine then the next day had gone wonky!
Garage suggested that we disconnect battery to hard re-set also?
Thank you in advance!!
