    Yes, it will work with your '08 with Nav.
    The following is a copy/paste from your 2008 CTS Nav System manual, page 3-33:

    Gracenote Database
    When a CDDA is recorded from a CD to the HDD, the music information (Album name, Artist name, Song name and Genre) is retrieved from the Gracenote database, stored in the radio. The database information uses the information of Gracenote Music Recognition Service. See “Radio(s)” in the owner manual for more information on the Gracenote Database.
    Gracenote Music Recognition Service, Music recognition technology, and related data are provided by GracenoteŽ. Gracenote is the industry standard in music recognition technology and related content delivery. For more information, visit www.gracenote.com.

    Updating the Gracenote Database
    1. Turn the ignition on.
    2. Press the power knob to turn the system on.
    3. Insert the update disc partway into the slot, label side up. The player pulls it in.
    4. Update Confirmation screen displays along with the version information. Press the Update screen button.
    5. The system will reboot and start updating the database. A progress bar of the update displays.
    6. The disc automatically ejects after the update is completed. The system will reboot.


    The download link provided in post #1 provides the means to update your Gracenote database (which resides on your Nav Radio's HDD) to the latest version currently available (i.e. 2011 /ver. 2010.0001 /rev 2548). The update is usable for /applicable to all 2nd gen CTS's equipped with the Nav Radio system (rpo UAV).

    Thank you very much for the description.
    You would think that this would be part of a NAV upgrade or a free download?

    Re: Gracenote Update ISO Download

    Not a problem. Yes, you would think this would be part of a Nav upgrade or a free download, but that hasn't been the case.

    As info, Nav map updates for GM vehicles are now offered at Navigation.com (http://allthingsnav.navigation.com/). Map updates are no longer available through GMNavDisc. The 2013 North America map update (sku# 22991499) for all Nav-equipped 2nd gen CTS's is priced at a ridiculous $199.99 plus shipping. The 2013 map update disc apparently contains some newer version maps consistent with March 28, 2012 (the Map DB release date). That said I've heard there are still plenty of errors and old map information in the latest update. I think I'll be staying with the 2012 version maps in my '11 CTS4.
    Updates for the Gracenote database (for both Nav and non-Nav Radio 40GB HDD Bose cabin surround systems) are no longer listed /not available at Navigation.com. The 2011 Gracenote database update (for UAV Nav systems) is probably the most up-to-date version we'll ever see for the 2nd gen CTS.

    Re: Gracenote Update ISO Download

    Since the nav update is from a new company, not Helm anymore, many believe this MAY be the last nav update for our generation. No proof of this statement, just speculation.

    Re: Gracenote Update ISO Download

    Tinman, this may very well be the case.

    BTW.. have you been able to download the ISO per the link in post #1?
    As info.. as an option to burning to a DVD-R note that an ISO image file can be burned directly to a USB thumb drive (having a minimum 2GB capacity in this case), and the USB thumb drive can then be used to update the Gracenote database on the HDD via the USB port in the center console.

    Re: Gracenote Update ISO Download

    FYI, you can still go to http://gmnavdisc.com ... it just directs you to the GM nav section on navigation.com

    and if you check a 2008 CTS you can see that the gracenotes disc is not available with no ETA

    Re: Gracenote Update ISO Download

    It didn't work for me. Do I just burn the folder or the actual ISO file?

    No, not the folder - you have to burn the actual ISO file to a DVD (-R or +R disc). Make sure you've set your burner program to close/finalize the disc at the end of the session.
