    I recently purchased a GLA with command online. Sometimes the vehicle on the screen is going backwards. How do I rectify this?

    Is the car new and if so, how long ago did you buy it?

    It is on a 64 plate. I bought it a week ago. My SLK had command sat nav, but I never had this problem with it

    Sorry but not understanding this, can you explain it a bit clearer for people like me?

    Or am I missing something obvious?

    Sounds like the nav is set to display north at the top (hence you travel down the screen when moving towards the south).
    Try checking your settings on the sat nav display, if I've understood your issue correctly.

    I'd go with that - if you change the settings on the SatNav to show the direction you are travelling at the top it should be fine.

    How do I get rid of the compass and just have it like my SLK was?

    Follow the link. It takes you to the instruction manual for your car and the relevant page.

    The manual downloaded is just the same as the one that came with the car. Back to the drawing board!!
