    2005 STS Nav issues

    Alright, everyone i seem to be having an issue with my sts upgraded reg radio to a nav unit. To start the scree never point north (have a gps antenna) and is never in sync with the road. I have to constantly calibrate and when i exit the menu the cursor goes back to being messed up. I have no voice and the bluetooth does not work but that doesnt bother me for now. I just to resolve this issue because its bothersome like crazy....thanx.

    I was not led to believe anything. I did the work and upgraded the nav, and the search btw was done was before i took the time to write the post.

    Chances are you've got the wrong antenna. You won't get voice guidance or Bluetooth without being a pioneer.

    The VR is essentially useless, anyway, so that's no loss. A Lockpick is the way to go.

    Agreed, and annoyed. The VR in my 02 DTS was flawless with its factory Nav, the STS VR is junk.
    Oh and the tint on my car made the gps signal more reliable.
