    I didn't see any threads specifically with this issue so I thought I'd post here.

    Has anyone had this issue? About 3 days out of the week, my navigation is mis-calibrated, thinking I'm somewhere else. I've already talked with the SC multiple times, and they would "have a technician check the logs" and it'd be fixed for a week or two, then it would go back to having issues. Resetting both screens multiple times doesn't help.

    For your entertainment...

    Here it is thinking I'm in the middle of the Bay. I ended up supercharging and it now thinks there's a "charger" at this location.... in the ocean.

    And I'm now in the mountains a few miles south off of my location:

    And I'm now inside the Oakland airport!

    And today was special. Today, I was far West in the Pacific ocean. So far out that it told me "You're now too far from any known charging stations."

    Happens occasionally to me, but it's rare. Usually clears up by the next day when things recalibrate.

    I had a 2015 Yukon Denali prior to the Tesla. My Denali did the exact same thing as you are describing. I had a fault in the GPS antenna. It was replaced and that took care of the problem.

    Do you have anything like a dash cam or other device in the car? I had that issue today after installing an dash cam. I found that the cable powering the camera was interfering with the GPS signal and had frozen me about 10 miles from my actual location. Sometimes it would track me off to the side of the road I was traveling on.

    I don't know why you're complaining? What's so bad about being in the Pacific Ocean or the beautiful mountains??? yes I've had that too and it's frustrating. Only I haven't been in such wonderful locations:p
