Hi,there may be a software update available for your navigation system this will depend on the software which is already installed to see if update has already been installed your dealer will be able to tell, if the update has already been installed the system may need a reboot this is usually done by removing both battery cables then touching them together( this drains the capacitors,)then reconnecting the battery,this could restore normal operation.Thanks for your time.
