I have a 07 Escalade and when I drive with the navigation on, the circle that represents me just spins in a circle. If I change it so the circle always faces north the screen just rotates once I start moving. When I stop the spinning stops. It's like a bad trip
Sounds like the compass in the Escalade is shorting out. The circle is supposed to rotate during a route to keep pointing forward. If you turn, the circle with the arrow should turn and then keep straight. Seems like yours doesn't know where you are. I would guess the compass isn't running correctly. Take it to the dealer and have them check it out. I'm sure they will be able to tell you what the problem is. Please let us know what happens. Hope this helps.
i have found that mine is wrong alot. A couple of times on the interstate i would look for the closest gas station and it would lead me to the exit that i wanted, when i reached the end of the exit...it would say "turn left", when i could see the damn shell on the right.
The same thing has happened in my city. I will punch in Pizza hut or something just to play around, already knowing where it is and it will lead me in the wrong direction.
