My X5 has now reached cruising altitude...

I was driving down I75 in Florida the other day in my '02 X5 3.0 with Mark III Navigation and all of a sudden the voice came on and said navigation not possible or something to that effect. I looked down and the guidance was off and take a look at my altitude. It started counting up for 30 minutes or so then started decrementing til it got to about 5000 feet or so. I recycled teh iginition and it hasn't happened since. Perhaps I need to get oxygen masks and flotation devices installed. Any ideas?

Good to know it'll track you up Mt. Everest if need be.

I have never seen that dilemma posted here before. Glad it's back to normal.

Quicksilver will become famous soon enough
Did you pass any electrical generating plants on 175 during the trip? Or anything that may disrupt the system. Microwave antennas? anything like that might disrupt the GPS and send a false reading. Maybe someone else in your area had the same issue the same day. It's just a guess. Or maybe you have been abducted by aliens for a bit. Check the back of your neck for implants.

I agree with Quicksilver...

Or maybe just one of those satellites was having a problem? As it was burning through the atmosphere at 33,000 feet lol...
