    My app thinks the car is somewhere I previously travelled. After shut down the car's screen believes I'm back there again.
    Any easy fixes ?

    Drive around where u have max LTE signal.
    I have had this problem.

    Easy issue:
    Your GPS is not in sync, most likely lost sync when you went somewhere without any signal.
    Manual Reboot: Hold down both buttons on steering wheel with brake.
    Reboot your MCU system.
    It can take up to 30 min from my observation in a good signal location to get it back.

    Medium Issue, try this after 30 min does not work.
    Take it in to service and have them pull the power to your MCU and boot it back up the hard way.
    Usually if it gets to here and does not get resolved...
    It goes to the Hard solution.

    Hard issue:
    Your antenna is fubarded.
    This is usually the last resort and it requires an entire rear glass replacement as well as the GPS antenna.
