We’ve been round the southern side of the M25 quite a lot recently and every time we go past the Leatherhead junction, we get the ‘SOS not working visit workshop’ message. Followed by an email telling us that a long list of functions have stopped working. Not too bothered as it clears eventually when the engines switched off.
@GrumpyGranddad (or anyone else near this location) do you have any idea what is located at this particular location that causes this?

I think the police helicopter airfield is close to there so there may be some radio signal blocking to prevent drones being controlled from the area.

Edit: Wikipedia suggests the Met’s airbase is at Lippitts Hill, Essex. Perhaps they have other refuelling stations.

Hi @NessL
Don’t live in that area but been round there on the M25 quite a few times since having the van and not had the problem.

Cali now sold
That's my "local" junction for joining the M25 and never had a problem.

Maybe it’s time to enquire about a software update.

Been all the way to Birmingham and back with no problems. SOS error happened again in the same area. Specifically where the road between Byfleet and West Byfleet goes under M25. :(
