  1. Open map with TouchPad, forced to use TouchPad to navigate the map and CANNOT use stick navigation. Open map with Menu button and navigate to map from there, able to use stick navigation. However, once I open the map via TouchPad, it seems broken and cannot go back to stick navigation until I turn my controller off and back on. Hope this helps others having the same issue.

    1. This advice seems to work best for me. Thank you!
      There seems to be some kind of hidden press on the touchpad which disappears when the controller is reset only to occur when the touchpad is used again.
      I’m guessing this is a manufacturing defect
