Hi

If your 02 BMW is equipped with the Mk 1 (there are four versions) NAVI 01 CD Unit you should be aware that these CD driven systems are known to be particularly unreliable units and BMW upgraded in 2003 to DVD driven units which are much more reliable.

If there is a problem with the unit and it is CD based it is advisable to consider an upgrade to a DVD based unit.

You can try a reset on the unit and that option should be available under the settings menu. If that fails there is either a firmware problem, a problem with the BUS connection or the unit may need to be updated by CD or DVD

Hope this helps. If so please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

How much satellites is it fixing? It might not be fixing enough to calculate your correct location.

2002 Mercedes s class sat nav screen shows car position in the North Sea


I hope that you are a sailor! Kidding aside, take out the fuse for the radio / gps and it will reset. IF you don't get a proper response when plugged back in, the antenna might have a problem or the unit is bad.

My 745i has gas and batterty power but it will not start.


The 2002 BMW 745I has a recall when the gas goes under a third of gas it will shut off and not start cause it thinks it has no gas. You can call BMW and they will check if your car is on the recall list and you can get it fixed for free. Or they told me to just take it to the BMW dealership and tell them.

2004 745i needs a new engine. Is it worth paying


WHY do you need a new engine for the car,whats wrong with it as no engine is worth throwing away and a BMW it worth doing it up as even a 318i is worth doing up etc as the body is worth selling if 100%and the engine is worth doing so dont be a mug.

BMW 745I 2002 wiper dead


there are several things that can cause the wipers in your car not to work. if you have verified the fuses are good and verified power to your wiper motor, I would try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 15 minutes, then checking operation of the wipers. by the way, which fuses did you check?
