My car initially had the following nav system
Road Map Premium 2010
I got a FSC code and a map update from Ebay and installed the following on my car through USB
BMW Road Map Europe PREMIUM 2014-1
All seems to be fine
However when I try to input a new destination, I get the message ERROR - unable to calculate route
I have tried various addresses but all give the same error
I have tried turning the engine off and wait for 5 mins and then retried the satnav but I still get the same message
The update seems to have happened because I can now input more than 5 character postcodes. Also my gps is working because when I chose points of interest, I get all the local shops etc
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated
PS if anyone knows how to factory reset the car sat nav, that could be helpful to me

Reason: Additional question
Start the engine and keep pressed the volume button for about 30s.
You will "feel" the reset.
Many Thanks for your help
Actually I managed to resolve the problem
I went for a drive and I noticed that the map changed from my location to a European location(language was different)
Then it eventually changed back to where I was driving
Seeing all of that, I retried setting a new location and it all worked
All I can conclude is that going for a drive round the block does some kind of reset
