So I get in the car the other day and my satnav (MFD2 - dvd version) shows me as being about 3 miles away from where it should do.
The info screen shows no satellites being picked up.
Where should I start? How do I do a system reset??

have you tried removing the disc, switching the unit off and on and re-inserting the disc.

Hi how to reset Satnav below.
You can do your own calibration.
First, you have to drive to a known intersection on the map, parking as close to the corner as possible. The best is a T intersection so you are not confused as to which road you are on at the junction.
Zoom the map in to 0.05 mile zoom.
Press the NAVI button.
Press the SETUP softkey on the right side of the display.
Press the POS. ON MAP softkey on the left side of the display.
Confirm that you are still zoomed in on the 0.05 mile level.
Using the softkeys on the left side of the display, rotate the cursor to the correct direction you are parked.
Using the softkeys on the right side of the display, move the cursor to the correct location you are parked.
Press OK.
You have now calibrated your position and direction of travel on the map. Hopefully you will have better accuracy with the nav system.

Must try that on ours sometime......I havn't used it yet but she's used it once and apparently the destination was some way out, to which I gave the blokey response 'you must have done something wrong'

Thanks Pilgrim but this does not address the problem I have.
The calibration was spot on until last week.
Since then the unit will not pick up any satellites. I was thinking more of a full software reset/reboot and how to do this without taking out a fuse or something similar.

My satnav is now magically working again.
It stopped picking up sats for no reason, and has now started again.
