OK made the dvd swap. When the dvd works(explained below) the location is still off on the screen. totally useless. Maybe the gps antenna went bad? If so, looking to replace the gps system with garmin 7" RV 760 LMT. Need to check that out as opposed to fixing an old factory gps. With regards ***** ***** dvd, most of the time the system indicates "no disk installed". So, have to eject & reload and most times that doesn't work either. You are up to speed on my situation. Thanks.
