    Re: 2008 CTS Navigation Disc Update

    That is some change! I don't know thier numbering protocols but the AppVer goes from 1.04.0000 to 2.00.0001 and the DB goes from
    8.63.12.022807.19 to 14.73.7.030308.24. My build was early July 2008. Interesting! OS version is the same.

    Maybe someone with a later build than July 08 can post thier info.

    Interesting that there was no change from Dec 07 to May of 08 and then the "big" change...numbers wise.

    I had my system software updated and now it will not play CD's. Get a message that says "incorrect disc. " Also still doesn't show the nearest gas stations w/ low fuel. Back to the dealer.

    Mine has worked great 99.9% of the time. I'm thinking I'm better off not updating my system, particularly since my dealer doesn't seem to know anything about the update.

Confusing cause all 08 CTS's are hard drive based. End of story is that I cancelled the prior order, couldnt place the new order for hard drive version, and they said to call back around 10/1 when hopefully their system will be straightened out and they will have the proper NAV DISCs for 08 CTS.

    Database Version: 14.73.7.030308.24

    My '09's build date was is August 2008 and the DB info says the same thing as you show. Based on the '08 cars' DB version info posted by others, it appears mine has been updated with the stuff that's on the $199.00 disc being sold now. (The GM NAV Disc person I spoke to said that that was possible.)

    EDIT: Above is only true, of course, if this App/DB version is in fact what's on the soon-to-be released disc. Even the NAV Disc person didn't know the version numbers yet for the new disc.

    Instead of getting the NAV update, why not get the connections and directions on star plan. In that way, if your destination isn't on your disc, you can always call on star, and have the directions sent to your car, via the DIC.

    I also noticed the recent change in the description of the 2009 Nav Disc for the '08 CTS. So I called gmnavdisc.com, they did some "research," and told me that this is the correct and only disc for the '08 CTS. You know, since there is only 1 nav system available. They said I just needed some sort of "update" from the dealer to make it work.

    What's up with that? I left a message with my dealer, but haven't heard back yet. Has anybody else gotten any confirmed info regarding this update? Why in the world would they have an update disc that says "non-hard disc version" if they all have hard drives?

    Do you know if the 2008 nav upgrade is a free or one you have to purchase?

    Re: 2008 CTS Navigation Disc Update

    Free Nav discs are only available to folks who purchased 06/07 new GM vehicles (excluding SAAB) with the built-in factory nav. They get 2 free updates, one at each of the next 2 anniversaries of purchasing the vehicle. They've got that info in the FAQ section of their newly re-designed website.

    So if you have a new 08/09 CTS, that'll be $200! In fact, I just got my 2009 Nav Disc DVD update today! Now all I need it a CTS to put it in.

    It's at the dealer, but hopefully will be done soon! I'm sorta curious to see how it works. The included letter says you have to keep it in there. But they aren't exactly "CTS Specific" instructions. It should copy everything to the HD...

    I guess I can do this while I'm at the dealer in case there are any issues.

    If you have to keep the Nav disc in the slot, then there is no place for a CD. Since there is only one slot in the car, I don't understand.

    Yeah, it's obviously incorrect. I suspect it'll copy itself to the internal HD on it's own. The question was whether or not the dealer had to do something to make it happen. We'll see...
