    Nav shows that there is no GPS data. I am driving in the Pacific

    I picked up my V after having the radio replaced.

    They had it set up for a CTS radio so the buttons were not set up correctly. They said that there is no setting for a CTSV radio in the computer so they programmed the buttons and sent me on my way.

    I noticed today that, when looking at my NAV screen, I am driving in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California.

    I went to the GPS info screen and it says "Out of Range".

    For some reason I am not getting any GPS data to my NAV.

    Is this because the radio is still not set for a CTSV?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    -Paul

    Uh. I got that.

    The point is the dealer has no idea what I am talking about. The last time this happened I told them the same thing and the tech reprogrammed it for a CTSV radio (as far as I was told on this site).

    This time they just keep saying that there is no listing for a CTSV radio.

    Now they are saying that the radio needs to be reprogrammed based on the VIN.

    I guess I just want someone who knows what they are talking about to tell me what to say.

    Go to the link and print off the page or find yourself someone who is familiar with TECH II.

    Obviously where your going now is clueless.

    Sounds to me like they are looking in the parts book for a CTS-V Radio, and they are right - no listing for a CTS-V Radio. The CTS radio, as Heavy stated, has to be setup properly with the TECH II, after they do that you can get into COMP Mode...

    Good luck...

    My nav decided it doesn't like my disc anymore and just says "Disc not accepted".

    I'm using the latest Nav disc and the software update it came with, so I'm going to try reloading the firmware update and see if that fixes it.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    I have heard of some of the nav units coughing and puking on a new nav disc.

    I don't think the firmware will fix it.

    You might try your old nav disc first then reinsert the new one.

    Sometimes the nav gets a little picky about temperature or just gets confused.

    Let me know if you want to try a different nav disc.
