    Thanks for the write up 2muchspl!
    I will definitely try this once settled in the new place this week

    The Map DVD Read Error started happening last week on my '10 and it was irritating as I drive a lot for work and need the Nav when I'm in the boonies…BOOM thing gives a Read Error while I'm in butt-****-nowhere

    Will update when completed!

    My truck won't read audio disks anymore. Think dirty lens might be the problem?

    Would a disc cleaner do the same work?

    Re: Map Read Error Fix with pics

    Im glad more people had success, Evois I tried one I borrowed from my neighbor and it wouldn't go to track 3 (where the brushes on the disc were located). I think it was because it knew it was an audio disc. Whatever was on the laser definitely wouldn't have come off without aid of alcohol.

    No, Disc cleaner wont work, well it didn't work for me, i also tried compressed air, and that didn't work...The eye is kind of inset there is no contact with the disc, that why the cleaner wont do it , you have to physically clean off the the eye, THANKS to 2muchspl with his post it took all the guess work out, you do have to be careful with the ribbon connectors..

    I plan on doing this since I will have my Nav unit apart for the MimicX2 install.

    Re: Map Read Error Fix with pics

    if you do this on a 2007 radio, the parts are vastly different looking, different locations for screws, different amount of ribbons, and placement of ribbons, BUT
    If you follow along you will be able to figure it out.
