Any way to adjust or calibrate the Altitude? I'm in my driveway at known elevation 12 but truck is showing elevation as -83. Pretty certain I'm not in a submarine underwater.
It's just showing you what the altitude is going to be in 100 years. No worries.

There are two possible reasons for this. I am not sure what sensor they are using, but if it is a pressure sensor, then it will have errors based on changes in the atmospheric pressure. altimeters on aircraft have an adjusting knob to account for this. The control tower will provide the pilot with the local barometric pressure to adjust it.

If it is using GPS, then it is likely the vertical error in the GPS, based on which satellites are being used. GPS altitude error is roughly 75 feet, very close to what you are seeing.
