147 Satnav - showing wrong location!


First post here on the forum..... I have a problem with the satnav on my 147. It's the Connect+ version with the larger colour screen.

The car has just come back from being serviced, and we'd had a problem with the CD changer so I asked them to check to connection to the head unit. They did this, and apparently didn't disconnect the head unit from anything or reset it, but...... on collecting the car the satnav is showing the car in the wrong place on the map. It's probably about 50/75m out, and pointing in the wrong direction too.

So it totally screws any use as route guidance, as I'm not where it thinks I am! It was working just fine before it went in. I've called them and they've said they haven't done anything to it, and they don't know what to do to fix it.

Does anyone know if there's a way of resetting the unit? Or adjusting the location?

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Many thanks,
