    Bump. I'd like to send the nav update disc back today but I'm not sending it until I figure out why my car is stuck at LAX.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    Another funny thing is the search in thread function obviously doesn't work. I hit LAX and it said it returned zero results. Same with "los" and same with "angeles" and any combination of the capital letter no capital letter spelling of them all (ie - lax, LAX, Angeles, angeles, etc).

    You need to drive the car a few hundred feet (outside) so the GPS can reset.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I have been having a problem with my nav...My 1st disk stopped working, probably due to a few scratches (came with the car I bought used). I bought a brand new disk less than a year ago, but now it has stopped working. If you look at the disk it looks brand-spankin'-new without any scratches at all. One day it became intermittant, then the next it just stopped altogether.

    I also have what I believe to be flash disk, and was hoping to get confirmation...It is a Yellow disk "Software Update Disk" GM p/n 15269176.

    Also, my service tech told me a while back (before I baught a replacement nav disk) that the Nav disks were very "delicate". Are disks by other compatible companies less likely to stop working for no apparent reason?

    I just re-flashed with this yellow disk, and still nothing. The DVD still read the flash disk, and still reads movie DVD's.....What gives?

    One more thing...From the moment I put the new nav disk in almost a year ago, it was NEVER removed untill it stopped working.

    My screen reads "Disk Error" when I press the nav button.

    You might try the original map disc if you have it.

    Sometimes the nav unit will just cough and puke on the map disc.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I was going to do the firmware update a couple years back when this thread started, but have since moved to Hawaii from Cali. ...(And since the nav dvds don't work here, it was low on my priority.) So I never got in on the deal where everyone was sharing the update disk.
    If anyone still has one, could you please mail it to me (I will reimburse mailing expenses via paypal if you like)
    I will use it right away and send it back or forward it to the next person. Mahalo

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    FYI - The Nav Disk says on the front of it something to the effect of "to be used on units installed in cars manufactured February 2005 and prior"

    I donated to Heavy's firmware fund for no reason other than the satisfaction of learning that fact and then sharing it now.

    For the record... I also learned that the Navteq 6.7 DVD used in Inifiniti/Nissan vehicles is fully compatible with our Nav units. Consequently if one were to buy this disk and make a fully functional image of it for safe keeping; that image of said DVD is a bit over 7GB and can be burned to a DVD-DL disk with relative ease.

    Hey greddy,
    Do you have one of the Navteq disks?...Do you happen to know if Hawaii is included coverage area?

    When I moved here two years ago Hawaii wasn't covered...
    I'm not sure if there anything is out there that will work as of now.
    ...If anyone has any info, it would be appreciated.

    I'll check if I can plug in a hawaiian address when I get home guy... I wonder if it will let us just scroll 1200 miles southwest into the ocean??? :-)

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I have ran the yellow upgrade disc of my own and it doesn't seem to help me out. My upgrade nav disc still sits and spins in the dvd player. So maybe I haven't taken enough time to figure it out. But my Nav also always resets to California when I take the disc out.... I am in Minneapolis. Any ideas? Is this a different upgrade disc. If so I would love to know because I am using the 2004 Nav even though I have the 2006.

    The reset to Calif is just the way it is.

    If you drive the car outside for a few hundred feet the GPS will reset to your location.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I've got an 05 V and need to update from my original dvd which is like 2003. Nothing shown built in the last 6 years. I likely have the original firmware in my unit. Does anyone have a clear process for what I need to do? I have been reading all morning and am now only more confused. Does anyone have a firmware update and clear instructions, and a "recent" nav disk I can try and send it all back to you with a token of my appreciation via paypal? If someone has a backup disk that works I am willing to try. please pm me.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    Hey Heavy,
    Got the upgrade disk today and uploaded it:
    Put it in and it loaded the new program just fine,
    ...But then it went to: "Loading Voice Guidance Data" and the progress bar was red instead of blue.... when it finished it ejected the disk and said "Program Loading Completed". (I had to put in the Nav disk for that screen to go away.)
    Then just out of curiosity, I put the upgrade disk back in to see if it would just eject it, but it didn't... it did the whole loading sequence all over again... Is that normal? I was expecting it to just spit it back out if it had the new program.
    Well I didn't do it any more, I just put the disk into the SAE and got it back in the mail and on it's way back to you. Thanks a bunch for sending it out so quick and making it so easy to return.
