    Greetings!

    Am I the only one that finds the flashing circle around the vehicle icon on the Nav screen annoying?

    Does anyone know if this can be turned off so it does not flash?

    Thanks!

    Flashed on my 2010 and does on my 2011. No, I do not find it annoying since I don't stare at it while I'm driving. :)

    There is no way to disable it that I can tell, I've looked.

    I was more concerned about it before I owned one. I'm very sensitive to flashing things, but have found that it never really bothered me when driving. I do still think it was an incredibly stupid decision.

    Mine does it too, I tried to find a way to disable it, but there isn't one that I've found. I don't really notice it much. My wife actually had to point it out to me before I noticed it.

    Are you running the factory tire size? The GPS uses the vehicle's wheel speed data to enhance the navigation accuracy. If you're running a non-factory tire size, it's going to throw off the calculation.
