    I need help with nav.

    HELP!!!! Just got back in town to find the nav disc I got from EBAY. I took out the old to find that it had the prehistoric version 2.0 in it. happily took out the disc put the 8.0...and nothing happened...I mean nothing, the screen stayed down and the disc will not come out.
    the stranger thing is after some time tinkering with the controls the radio ,XM, and CD came on. which I did not think worked with the NAV screen down.

    Has anyone any idea what this could be? the car has a little over 30000 miles on it so the unit could not have BEEN used all that much IMO, signed Clueless....

    Maybe the 8.0 is not compatible with your system? I know nothing about the 07 DTS Nav but I ungraded my 09 CTS and had no problems. But I did not buy the new version off ebay and there may lie the problem. My NAV seems different in that the disc is only used to load the hard drive.

    The DTS NAV system does not have a hard drive... The disk stays in the unit all the time.

    Yeah, it took me awhile to find the close button and figure it out, with the display turned upward. I think I had to look it up in the manual (WHAT A CONCEPT)!
