    My GPS started acting up yesterday while at Rheinbeck N.Y. The car image would float off the road I was traveling up to 1/4 mile off but parallel the actual direction traveling. It would come back on the road I was traveling on the screen but fall off either turning or going on to another route. My XM-Sirius also was losing signal and reacquiring it. I wonder if it's a signal-antenna issue, or a computer problem. Anyone have or had this issue?

    Satellite issue. It's likely temporary unlessthe aliens have taken them out before the invasion starts.

    Is there a countdown timer or a large ship hovering over your area

    Check and see if your software is up to date

    Ya gotta have a little fun, those.GPS things have a way of sorting themselves out. Give it a day or two before rushing to the dealer. .

    I have had this same issue in a number of cars when I drive by a small airport . I think it is their radar is covering the road and the gps goes crazy and soon as I am by everything goes back to normal.

    OK, this exact same thing happened to me, just do a reset under settings. The UConnect will reboot, and it fixed it for me. I did while the car was running and I was driving too....

    If it happens again, I will try the reset on the nav settings.
