D3 navigation reads the wrong location of vehicle/radio

This has happen a few times already. I live in miami, fl. but the navi shows me in brooklyn, ny. the arrow just moves to show direction but doesn't move like your driving threw streets. I could zoom in & out of brooklyn. its been stuck for a few days now. the last time it lasted for the whole day and then worked fine. is this a satellite problem? signal? or the unit? the very first time was 18 months ago. didn't work for a few hours and then worked fine. I've hit the reset buttons on the d3 unit, the xm navi, & the bluetooth unit. nothing. thanks for any help.

    it's telling me I'm in LA and won't move around at all, when I'm driving in Santa Barbara. Tried the "reset to the original settings" still no change.

I unplugged the wire harnesses from the back of the unit and pulled the 10 amp fuse. It reset to the proper location
