    Does anybody know what the firmware or bios version this updates takes you to?

    I think this is the first bios/bug fix.

    As usual my Caddy dealer knows nothing about this and they want to swap out my nav system to fix my 'Stuck in MI' issue. I don't want them too becuase I fear for how they might screw this up and the new noises my nav system will make.

    Heavy - I lost the last email you can send the paypal address to me:

    svassh@msn.com

    I will gladly pay the shipping charges to avoid another run in with the dealer.

    Thanks

    Does anyone know if the Nissan-Infiniti v. 7.x discs also work? And has GM released any supplemental firmware revisions since this first fix?

    The 7.5 may I REPEAT MAY work in the later 05 and on models with XM radio traffic.

    I need someone to either confirm this or try it.

    Since the 06 and on owners get free updates, kind of a moot point.

    Although I know the map info will be more updated on the Zenrin.

    I have personally tried the Infiniti 6.3, 6.4 and am running the 6.5 version in my 2005 CTS-V. This is after the CD ROM update. Both the 7.2 version and the 6.5 version have a release date of November, 2006. I had won a 7.2 version on eBay, but the seller renegged and I got my money back. I'll try to win another 7.x version cheap and try it out and report back.

    Disc fixed my nav problem. I'm free to roam outside of Michigan.

    Thx Heavy and Reed, disc on its way back.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    Weird... today my Nav seemingly froze up... pushing the NAV buton did nothing (although the system did know that it was no longer on BAND because the tunning knob did not change the channels)...

    Then I got a message saying "Not a valid disc" (or something along those lines)...

    I ejected the disc, re-inserted it, and it gave me the "Agree" splash screen. When I hit "Agree" it froze and would not go into the Nav at all. I turned the car off and back on again... same thing...

    Weird...

    So I keep on driving, get about 10 minutes down the road, hit "NAV" again, and it works?!? Weird...

    Not sure if anyone else has had this type of problem with a burned 6.5 disc in their Nav... Anyone?

    May be a temperature related problem.

    Eject the disc, look for any marks or crap on it.

    I have had mine do that before.

    The system coughed and puked and then restarted and worked.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    heavymetals suggestion is a good one. I have seen DVDs exhibit all kinds of weird behavior simply because of a heavy finger print on the bottom surface of the DVD. Cleaning the surface frequently solves many problems. Be aware that CDs and DVDs are written from the center out. As a result, startup problems are usually associated with stuff near the hub of the disc.
