This part of the initialization matches
the GPS coordinates found above with a
road on the map screen. To perform this
part of the procedure, ensure that the
navigation system is displaying a map,
and drive the vehicle on a mapped road
(a road shown on the map screen). Do
not enter a destina tion at this time.
When the name of the current road you

Something is interfering with the system’s ability to
acquire its location. Check the following:
* The vehicle must be in an open area with a clear
view of the sky.
* Remove sources of GPS interference like metallic
window tint above antenna, or electrical items
near antenna (see owner's manual for details).
* Check GPS antenna cable connection.
* Restart the engine and repeat the GPS acquire
