    PLEASE expound on what you told them, etc. Thanks! Been through all kinds of hoops with zero results, including PM'ing the stated Cadillac service rep on here.

    I called and spoke with Antoinette and she confirmed that the offer ended in 09. No luck here. I have at 08 ESV with the V 1.0 disc. Anyone have a spare 2011 disc i can "borrow"

    Re: Free 2011 Nav Disk

    ONCE AGAIN: the offer was only for 2006 and 2007 GM vehicles with navigation ... if you don't have a 2006 or a 2007 then there is ZERO chance of getting a free disc

    if you have a 2006 it is very unlikely that you will get a free disc after this much time has passed on the promotion
    some people with 2007s are still able to get the free update disc but that will soon become next to impossible as it currently is for the 2006 models

    Re: Free 2011 Nav Disk

    I can understand why there is acutoff on the 2007 Model year vehicles but i don't comprehend why only those vehicles are offered the disc. The website lists the same update for both the 07 and 08 ESV. I'm pretty sure there was not a version less that v 1.0 ever distributed.

    /rant off

    Still looking for a used 20945286 disc if anyone has one...

    Re: Free 2011 Nav Disk

    2006 and 2007 model year new cars (with nav) had a special promotion (as part of the new car sale)

    the promotion was for two free nav disc updates (supposed to be for the next two years, but GM has apparently allowed it for every other year... or so)

    Re: Free 2011 Nav Disk

    Ok after reading this I sent them a email saying that I wanted the free updated Nav disk. They told me it ended in 2009 and no longer do this. Then I replied that I have talked to people and that they still are getting the free updated disk from the website. They asked for a VIN# & address. Then replied that they were going to send me a one time only courtesy disk. Sweet! Only took a day. Thanks guys!

    Re: Free 2011 Nav Disk

    I called said the disk I have isn't working. Then was asked if I wanted to buy a new one and said I thought there may be a replacement option. Got Vin and mailing info checked system and said there was a program for 06/07 vehicles but it 12/31/09 Expired but offered me a 1 time exception. Got one on its way! Any future updates are out of my pocket though

    Yeah, I think the cost is outrageous. I ended up here to research the situation. But, hey, where is your integrity? No thanks for the dishonesty required here.
