My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
There are some limit switch faults and in some cases the rear trunk interior flaps that fold out with the top their housings can fail and cause the top issue.The repair costs for these can vary running from around $200 for a switch/sensor replacement to near $700 for the gear housing replacements.
As for the nav this sounds like the command unit itself is at fault.In this case it would need replaced and this can cost around $2500 in some cases.
Thanks Pete
