I've had my A6 Avant since July, it's a 15 plate 3.0tdi and I'm loving it so far, but I've got a weird issue with the sat nav.
I don't use it very often, but about 75% of the time it doesn't work (picks up 0 satellites) and when it's not working, it also seems to interfere with GPS on other devices like phones etc. I don't really need the in built system as I use Google maps anyway, but is it likely that the aeriel is faulty and causing interference, and if so will unplugging it help? Or is it more likely that a previous owner has installed a GPS blocker?
I used an app on my phone to check gps signal, and standing next to the car I have a strong signal, but as soon as I press the unlock button the GPS signal disappears. If I sit in the car with the ignition off long enough for the electrics to cut out again, the GPS signal on my phone comes back
Thanks in advance
Update on my Nav system................took my car in yesterday and Colchester Audi sorted it for me, gave my MMI system an "update" (took about two hours) and everything now works fine. The look of the new Nav display is slightly different from the old Google Earth but is of equal quality. Best of it is they done it for nothing well done Colchester Audi
