I've had the slow leak problem twice. I don't have Nav but I did get a dash light once. The other time, I heard a constant tick tick sound coming from under the car & thought (hoped) I had picked up a rock. Both times, I visually inspected the tire & saw a nail head on the tread.
I have Pirelli's and I think the tread design makes the tire more susceptible to absorbing nails (as well as pebbles) I might run over.
