Navigation unable to pinpoint location
I own a 2014 f250. I picked my truck up from the shop on thursday june 19th with a new 4.5" lift and 37" tires. The shop is located about 85 miles from my house. To get home I plugged in my Address on the Nav and headed home and the nav system worked fine. 80 miles of the ride were highway miles.
Today was the first time I used the navigation since Thursday. I went to a buddies house about 25 miles away and traveled mostly on city roads. The navigation would start out accurate but with in a couple hundred feet would put my location off the road, basically in the wood line or lake paralleling the road I was on. As soon as the arrow would hit a side street it would recalculate the directions from the road it was on and send me in all different direction.
My question is, could the bigger wheels or lift throw off the accuracy of the navigation? I know the MPH is off by about 3-4mph but, i wouldn't think it would effect the nav like that. If it is, is there a way to fix this or should I take it to the dealership? Could it just be a faulty equipment issue. I just find it odd this is happening after i had the lift installed.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
