    Hello- I've got a factory GPS in my 2001 540 that consistenly shows the wrong vehicle postion. Its an obsolete system with CD mapping (CD's updatred in 2005) which may be the problem, but anyone know of an easy (re: cheap) fix? I know a much better portable system could be had for around $150, but I like the built-in setup. Thanks

    Not to be a pain, but swap it over to just the simple in dash cd player. Tech like this goes out of date quick and is not really worth keeping up. Kind of like car phones of past.
