My navigation system on my 1997 RL is not working right. I don't know exactly why it's doing it, but it's irritating. What's happening is that my positioning icon on the GPS is off track by miles. I realized this when I got on the freeway yesterday and it said that I was not on a digitized road, and the position on my map was not even on any road. I'm still on a freeway then. After golf I decided to put in my home address to see if it would recalculate its position, and it did not work. On the map I was somewhere half way across town where I knew I wasn't at. I took the freeway home and it said I was 4.7 miles from my destination. Still on the wrong streets and it was telling me to go on these different streets that weren't in the area, so it kept screwing itself up and by the time I pulled into my driveway, it said that I was 6.0 miles away from home.
I was still positioned in a different area. I then tried putting in my address again from down the street and still it was positioned in an area miles away from my house.
I decided to call the toll free Acura service number for trouble shooting in the manual, and they suggested that I take it to a dealer. They couldn't really help. I would do that but it's expensive and I do not have the money. I don't know if I should fix it, or get rid of it. I understand that the car is pretty old so things happen as time goes on, and that technology can be a pain to repair. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there an easy way to repair this? Please help! I'd really hate to get rid of it, but if I have to I might.
