hi guys ive just got hold of a brand new comand unit today and fitted it, everything works fine apart from the sat nav the unit thinks i am where the unit came from and will not locate me over here ive tried driving around and nothing happens, i have also tried plotting a course but it just plots it from this position in europe (where it was last tested i presume) then plots me a 600 mile trip home. has anybody got any experience with this?

They tell you on the screen how many satellites they are picking up and you can also go into the menu and check
