Mazda5 - GPS not locking and location wrong

MB3MB3 Posts: 83 [Renowned Trailblazer]
Over the past few months have notice more and more problems with the GPS location on my Mazda5.

I've connected to the Tomtom Home app and checked for updates and downloaded latest QuickGPS data. I've already done the hard reset and that seemed to fix things for 1 day, but then the problem reappeared.

I've been looking at the GPS status and the graphs are jumping all over the place, alot more than I recall ever seeing before.

The 1st picture below shows 8 satelites in view, but no GPS lock. (As I understand, the lock is only seen when the bars turn blue.)

I then turned the engine off and restarted 30 seconds later. The end picture shows the GPS seems to have locked this time, although still not at the correct location initially.

For the next 2 pictures (3 & 4) the location was finally correct (so I have hidden the details) but the GPS signal strength is jumping around as can been seen by the 2 pictures, taken 2 seconds part.

Any ideas what might be going on and how I go about resolving?
