No one? It seems pretty rare as searches bring up nothing on it

I got this problem that just seems to have surfaced within the past week. The first time I noticed, I started the car and the navigation showed my position about 12 miles away in the next town over. Now its been doing the same thing nearly every time I start up the navigation. I can correct it sometimes by going into settings/position on map and manually moving the cursor to my correct location. I say sometimes it works, because 50% of the time I can move the cursor to the position I'm at and it will then work just fine but other times the nav will have my heading completely wrong (I'm going north, but nav has me going south) and it will not correct. Sometimes it will just slowly drift off my real position and eventually it won't even be on a road anymore.
Tonight, no matter how many times I tried to correct the nav by moving the cursor, it kept my heading well off of where it should be, practically 180 degrees from the way I was actually going. So as soon as I started moving again the maps would be totally off.
Anyone ever experience this?
Its the OEM navigation
There isn't much in the way of set up menus on it, its pretty limited. I do have nav on my smartphone which I can see if it works in the car and see if there is interference.
I'm going to ask one of the guys at our VW branch, I have to take my GTI there on Monday anyways.

Thanks for the link! After poking around some threads there (horrible forum format BTW) and some others on mkvgti and turbo diesel forums, I think I might have an older firmware version. I'm going to check what version I have tomorrow.
Seems to have symptoms of an older version: slow loading, still has the "accept" screen every time the unit is powered on, Sirius takes ages to load up, etc. Maybe the messed up/out of sync nav is another symptom. I was messing with the nav today. I would set the cursor on the road I was traveling, but I set it back further than i really was. Eventually the cursor would move on the map past my actual location until it was showing about a 1/10th mile ahead so when I went to make a turn it would screw the whole nav up. No matter what the cursor seems to move slightly ahead of my real position.
As far as I can tell from all the forums, v50 is the newest firmware for this unit. I doubt mine has ever been updated. It still has the 2007 maps DVD so the previous owner probably never messed with it.
The other issue is finding where I can DL v50 to my laptop so I can burn it to a disc, most of the forum threads are from 3-4 years ago and the links are dead. If worst comes to worst I found someone on ebay selling a copy of v50 firmware on a disc for 20 bucks.
