    VW UP Garmin

    My wife's Garmin unit in her UP has this morning taken some time to alter the screen to a setting totally different to what it has been since new 7 months ago. The sat nav settings were haywire and all but useless. Anyone know if some sort of upgrade has taken place within the last few days?
    I have spent 30 minutes getting it back to a usable situation with the original screen etc but more by luck than skill.
    The car had been unused for a week and nobody was in it to manually alter the settings either deliberately or accidentally. It had remained plugged into its port while unattended at home here.
    2015 Golf SV SE 1.4 TSI, DSG. Limestone grey. Sat Nav. F & R parking sensors. RVC. Digital climate control. Fog lamps.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    100% agree - however what is slightly more important is the possibility of her getting lost on the way home from Pensioners R Us with my large Easter egg.

    Have you tied the usual computer trick of removing the power, i.e. disconnecting the battery for a while and reconnecting to see what happens? It may need a software update which will have to be done by the dealer if you can't find an indy with ODIS.
