I saw where some people said they got a free upgrad disc for the nav system? Could anyone tell me if this is true and if so how to get one?? I have a 2007 escalade now w/ the original disc..
Thanks.... :confused:

I was told that they offered the free upgrades for 2007s for a while but the offer expired in Jan 2010.

No I just got an update for free but you have to call. It matters if you or the previous owner already used all of the updates if not you are in luck and will get the new disc for free. Again don't email just call, I emailed and then called after about 3 days and no response.

No call the number if the previous owner or yourself hasn't used up all the free updates then you can get the new nav disc for free. You are going to need your vin #.

I got mine for free in Feb. I was lucky I guess. The person I talked to said the free update ended at the end of 2009, but they gave me one as a good will gesture anyway. I'd call and try for it. Can't hurt to try, since the disk is 199 if you have to pay for it.

Apparently this is just for 2007's Escalades. I have not received any free updates for my 2008. When I called a few months ago they said the offer was only for 2007's and it had just expired.

Are the navigation discs really that much different/improved from one that came with my 2008 Escalade?

I remember reading in another thread that the 2010 disc had some issues. i.e. wrong directions.

I can vouch for that. I wish it would not update the firmware, but just update the maps.

Just called and confirmed this is true they are sending me a free disc.

The offer expired in Dec 2009, but If you have not yet received an upgrade disc they will send you one.
