E500 Navigation

I am pretty disappointed in the Navigaiton (Command 2004.1)system I purchased with the car. The first thing was the inability to navigate to a specifc address (no help on this forum)and now the second issue seems to be the calibration.

When I come up to a street (e.g. making a left turn) I get a warning of an approaching turn while moving along - stating for example "in 500 yards" when in fact it is more like 100 feet. I assume this is a calibration issue but my dealer knows nothing on how to fix this.

Any help out there?

RE: E500 Navigation

Better to give a block than a possibly incorrectly assigned street number. What I do is to store the precise location I want to go to, either by selecting on the screen, or after driving there and storing it then.

When the NAV if off that much at an intersection, it will usually autocorrect itself once it's driven more in the same neighborhood - that's what mine does.
