    Re: 2011 Gracenotes update

    The Gracenote update disc you received either needs a cleaning with a microfiber cloth or it is scratched (damaged).
    If the disc surface is smudged or scratched the system in your CTS will not be able to read it successfully. I have found the system in our CTS's is finicky when it comes to even tiny marks or scratches on update discs.
    Suggest you contact GM Nav Disc if that's the case.. OR.. you could try to create (burn) a new copy of the update disc using your computer, if your computer's disc drive is able to read the original disc in its entirety. That process has worked for me and others when faced with a damaged update disc.

    $15.50 shipping on a $20 disc? Ouch!

    That's why I haven't ordered it. They could ship it USPS for 1/10th the cost.

    Despite the fact the disc's contents are arguably useless.. why not post the 2011 update disc's files to a file sharing site to allow forum members here to download them? There's no password/user code to unlock/load the Gracenote disc's contents. All the user would need to do is download the files, burn them to a blank DVD and insert the disc into their CTS's Infotainment system.

    As info.. with my new Sony 3D-capable full featured Blu-ray player I am able to download, within seconds and without charge, full Gracenote information for any disc I insert into the player. Why should we have to pay to update the Gracenote database in our cars? Cadillac and/or Gracenote.com should offer this for free for our CTS's, as an available download. I support paying for certain types of software.. but $19.99 plus $15.50 shipping for a questionable Gracenote database update is outrageous.
