GPS Calibration on 2014 Ford F250

I'm randomly getting bad reading on my navigation that show my truck almost 2 or 3 tenths of a mile off the road.

I cannot seem to locate a calibration menu or anything in the owners manual?

Anyone have a clue or can point me in the right direction?

I have the same issue, I've brought it in to the dealership twice, and of course it doesn't happen when it's there. The service manager said it could be poor satellite coverage, but I've had my garmin on at the same time, and it works perfectly, so I know it's a bunch of BS. Some guys were having an issue because they changed tire size, but mine are stock. I hope ford comes out with a patch or something.

Will I've been searching and best answer so far is to plug the negative battery cables for an hour. I did it and it seems to be working so far...but a day or more of driving will confirm it.

Zixxer, you are correct. This also happens when you lift the truck it messes with the GPS for some reason. Mine was messed up and unplugging the negative terminals for a few minutes completely fixed it.

and back to randomly going all over the map. It was overcast today so I need to find the engineer screens to see how many satellites are being picked up.

my dads brand new platinum 2014 does the same crap. they took it to florida and all the way up and down I-75 it would think they got off the highway and recalculate to get them back on the highway. my parents arent very tech savvy so this is just throwing them for a loop. its been to the dealer twice and neither times has it fixed it. truck is 100% stock.

I noticed yesterday that I am having the same issue. This is my first Ford, and it is discouraging that they can't seem to get something as common as GPS navigation to work properly. Hell, my cell phone had that feature five years ago, and it worked properly then.

My dads 2014 f350 lariat dually and my good friends 2013 f350 lariat both have this issue. Both on stock wheels and tires. Arrow shows you are driving parallel to the road you actually are driving on. After parking turning off truck and restarting. GPS is accurate again but after a few mins does the same crap.

Last weekend in my friends 2013, it was so far off , the freeway we were actually on wasn't even on the screen anymore.

Ford needs to find the problem! My '11 F250 King Ranch Nav works perfect with no problems what so ever.

Yeah the older Navs were great, Ford really didn't iron things out of the MFT system, before putting them in their vehicles.

We finally gave up on using the nav in Atlanta. It had no idea where we were. Sometimes, when we were on the interstate, it was showing us so far off course that where we really were wasn't even on the map. Sad that the $1k+ option doesn't work as well as a $50 smartphone.
