    Got the flash disk in Friday's mail. Update was effortless and successful. Mailed back the disk that afternoon. Works perfectly in my 04 with the Zenrin disk. Thanks guys -- thanks HeavyMetals!

    Patience is the key when loading. After a few minutes it seems like it's not doing anything; just let it be. When done, it'll spit the DVD flash disc out.

    Thanks to everyone involved for making this available!

    Not having everybody in this forum begging to be next is f,n mind boggeling to me.Do people not use their navs at all?This nav was a constant source of frustration to me before this fix,I don't get it.

    Stickies are good for about a week, after that they start to become invisible to frequent forum members.

    Would you recommend we do this even if we don't have the stuck in Michigan problem? I use a Zenrin 6.4 disc and have no problems....that being said, I have no idea what year my nav is (didn't come with my car)

    If you don't have the "stuck in Michigan" problem, you don't need the flash.

    I did not have the "stuck in Michigan" problem on either my CTS-V or CTS. The Flash was kicked out of the CTS-V but did upload in the CTS. So what I would say is that if you have a question whether you need it or not you should get it and try to do the flash. If you indeed don't need it the DVD will eject and tell you you don't need it, but if you do need it, it will install. Then you will know for sure.
