    i was in atlanta last weekend for a braves game and i turned on nav and it was like scanning i guess and the location point where it thought i was was moving very fast across the pacific ocean towards i guess Hawaii...

    very weird indeed ...

    it never fails though that when i actually need it, with all those one way streets downtown, it never works haha

    i wonder what causes it and if more people have had this problem ...

    Make sure you have location on, if its in 911 only, change it to location on. My prob is it keeps changing to 911 and I have to always keep changing it back, even if I select never warn.

    I was using it yesterday and it was going smoothly. But I got a call. Answered the call....hung up.....and then Navigator jumped around with different locations close to where I was for about a minute and then died altogether. I'm assuming it was a force close. I was close enough to my destination that I just gave up. Strange though.
