Problems With Navigation System

In my 2008 Jeep Compass I am experiencing some issues with my nav as of late...What is happening is basically the navigation won't pick up any satellites for say 9 days at a time and just throw me completely off track by miles of my actual location, then randomly it will work again and just repeat that cycle. Any suggestions as to why that might happen. I bought an REC unit off ebay as well as a antenna off ebay about a year ago and this problem probably has been on going for 6 months now. Thanks for any help you can provide.

are you talking of the OEM factory navigation or aftermarket?

It says its part # 82208653AK which is the factory REC nav unit and they say it's covered by Mopar 12/12 warranty. Not that I can help you with why it's screwing up but the dealer should cover the warranty on it.
