Navigation Calibration and Adjustment

I recently upgraded to Nav OS v26. On the old OS, if I held down the INFO button a screen would appear with a selection for NAV or RDS. In the NAV submenu I could adjust the GPS positioning in increments (+1, -2, etc.). Has this feature been moved or removed? Is it obsolete?

That is not GPS calibration, it's navigation volume minimum adjustment. Have you also lost Select-button functions? Maybe you should try these instructions: http://www.xoutpost.com/articles/x5/n...s-upgrade.html

TP volume stands for Traffic Patrol Volume. Since this feature is a radio volume INPUT control that uses the same inputs as NAV, it actually increase the nav audio volume. To set the advanced features including TP volume see this post http://www.bimmerboard.com/forums/posts/154948

No Calibration is needed in the X5. The X5 never came with MKI (to my knowledge) which had a "calibration" feature.

Navigation Calibration is detailed in this document from BMW, page 35

Okay, so perhaps I am describing this wrong. I did the base calibration of entering an intersection and then pressing "crossing intersection". The system will accurately plot my location until I make even a subtle turn (especially traffic circles). The unit does not accurately track these turns (yaw) and will drift to parallel streets if they are within a block or two of my actual location.

So I was wondering is there a way to re-calibrate or diagnose the gyro and/or wheel sensors (though the give a reading in the service menu).

Thank in advance,

RSZ

You can see if the sensors are functioning by entering the Navigation Service Mode http://www.bimmernav.com/advanced.htm
Sensors are located under Sensor Check
