    Navigation Issue After 11.3 Disk Update

    I'm having a problem that has started since updating my navigation disk/system with the latest (11.3) update. The problem is that it seems the GPS signal is intermittent, now. When driving, it takes longer than usual for the GPS indicator to indicate I have signal and then my position on the map is wrong for most of the trip. Every ten seconds or so, my position gets updated to the correct position so I know I'm getting GPS signals (at least at times). But it drifts from that position for a while before this reset. It's been this way for a few days with many truck starts. Nothing seems to want to kick it in the head.

    Anyone else with an 11.3 update see this (or any version)? I'd like to rule out the version, but it all started since that update I installed a few weeks ago.

    Any ideas what else I should look at?

    I've been through many updates, too, with no issues. Seems you have the same version as I do so the problem is me (go figure).

    Talking about burning nav discs / copying for any reason at all will get the thread deleted and users banned. I have no flexibility with this, forum policy.

    Re: Navigation Issue After 11.3 Disk Update

    Well, I just got the Nav CD for Free. 100% Authentic in it's original Case & Box.

    How, you ask?

    Well, I have a problem with my rear camera & the user SpyShops NY which is a member on this forum had told me to bring the car by his shop in order to see what was the issue with my rear view camera.

    Seems the cable leading to the back is broken off. (Will have it fix next week)
    Then I ask him what NAV CD would I need for my escalade.. (I thought my radio/dvd/nav unit didn't work)
    He then takes out a NAV CD and inserts it in my escalade..."ERROR" ...He then cleans my nav unit with a disk cleaner & air spray cleaner & It worked perfectly!
    He then just gave it to me for free. I highly appreciate it SpyShops NY.

    I as well did not know my car had an automatic start. He showed me how it work. I am thankful for that as well.
    Well none the less, Now I have navigation & it is truly amazing & by far the easiest I have used in any other vehicle before.

    How do you find out what Nav Data version is in the system? Can it be accessed from the DIC? Thanks....

    Re: Navigation Issue After 11.3 Disk Update

    To close out this thread, it seems my root cause was a bad GPS antenna. After replacing it, my issues have gone way (at least for the past 100 miles or so). Now the question is: "how can an update DVD break my GPS antenna?" But that's for another day... ha!
