Unfortunately a reset won't work for this problem. If your vehicle is in the wrong location it is because of a failure of the gps antenna mounted on the roof. The roof antenna houses 3 different antennas (satellite radio, gps, and tele-aid/mbrace)so only 1 may fail. A new roof antenna is about $500 installed. Expect to pay a little more if a dealership does it. I'm sorry if it's not the answer you want to hear but it's the only correct one. Let me know if you have any more questions before you rate me, thanks!
