Hello.

If your W176 is from the first series (up to 2015), you have a Becker Map Pilor unit installed on the glove box compartment (top right).
The unit is installed on a sliding socket with connectors on the back. Try reachint it, eject and reinstall it. See if it makes any difference.
You can also check the 3 connectors on the back, if any one got loose.
You can also try to update it, not getting GPS coverage can also be corrupted software. To update a Becker unit, connect it to a PC via USB port, register the unit on the Becker web page and update the software. It´s free.
If it´s not the Becker you have, I cannot suggest you anything more.
Antenna should be the last of your concerns.
