    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    If I just got a new navigation radio put in under warranty should it already have the latest firmware version? Also I was unable to change the state from Michigan when entering a destination and the dealer ordered me a new nav DVD...does this sound right?

    They will probably order you a old Nav DVD so it can work.
    Get the flash disk and flash it yourself.

    Sounds like you got a newer nav disc but need to flash the unit.

    A "newer" nav disc is gonna have the same problem.

    The dealer should have the flash, but if not no problem.

    Just let me know.

    Any update on if it 7.x version of the Infiniti DVD work with our Navs ? I have a 05 V. Thinking of ordering a 7.2 disc off ebay. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I know 6.5 is the most current but someone said it won't work with XM traffic.

    Maybe 7.2 will, but since I don't have XM traffic, I don't care.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I have a flash disk, if anyone is still looking or if heavy needs a replacement for one not returned. I'll gladly send it to whomever would like it. I just got a new Nav disc from Cadillac (came with the flash) because I bought my '05 V as a "certified" used car. Everyone here is talking about version 6.x or 7.x, but the one they sent me is marked version 6.0 and is GM part #25813528. Is it any better or different than Version 6.0 Q4 02 part # 25766899? Which, by the way is also available if anyone needs it.

    Thanks

    Randy

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    Thanks for the offer.

    So far the "library" has two overdue that I assume aren't going to be returned.

    They are useless after you use once, but the FAQ's gets requests as the forum, so I do the mailings.

    Just wish they would return the doggone things!

    RETURN THE DAMN CDS people...

    your will spoil the sense of trust and community that has been built here... Thats why I was willing to "insure" these discs initially... Heavy is the man for taking the lead on this and you DONT want to make him angry...

    Heavy,

    If they don't show up, I'd be happy to send mine along....Just PM me with an address. Since I'm a new owner, I haven't had a chance to contribute much, but I can start with this.

    Heavy,

    I can't send a PM yet, not enough posts.....It'll go out tomorrow. On my NAV disk, I just got it from Cadillac and it is marked as version 6.0 copyright 2006, is this the current version? see post #83

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    It will be the "most current" for Cadillac, but not the most current that will work.

    Get this:

    Cadillac puts out the updated nav dvd two months before Zenrin.

    So Zenrin is two months late, but a year ahead in information!

    Caveat: I have to check if the other version of the Zenrin has the XM radio traffic hooks that will work in the late 05's and on.

    Since I have an early 05 (no traffic info) I don't care.

    Re: Navigation system update (firmware)

    I have been reading through this thread, interesting topic. I have an 06-V, not sure what version it has or what years the update is good for. I ended up picking up the car used and did not receive the DVD for the NAV. I have been waiting for the dealer to order me one and they have not yet. I was planning to go on the web and order myself one but reading this I am wondering if I will have issues when I try and load it? Do they send the BIOS disk with the NAV disk?
