Hey Guys,

I just bought my wife an 06 escalade. It is currently being delivered, so I haven't been able to try anything in it yet.

The only thing missing on the vehicle is the nav disc. I did a quick search and found the GM nav site. The number that comes up for me is: 20855830
My newb questions are:

1. Will the nav system be working at all when I get the truck if the disc is missing?

2. Is there such a thing as a Canadian or a U.S. disc or are they all the same?

3. Did I find the right number? 20855830 Don't want to grab the wrong disc!

Thanks!

No. When you press the button it will just say no disc. You won't get a map or anything...



2. Is there such a thing as a Canadian or a U.S. disc or are they all the same?

Same


3. Did I find the right number? 20855830 Don't want to grab the wrong disc!

2010 part number - 20855830
2011 part number - 20945770


Thanks!

Your Welcome!

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong here but when I search the GM Nav disc site, they only go back to 2007 models. Is there an issue purchasing the 2011 disc since I have a 2005?

Think you might be doing something wrong. I can purchase it fine.

http://www.gmnavdisc.com/buy-a-disc.asp?lang=en

and then put in make, then model, and then wait a second and the screen will reload itself to allow years 2003 to 2011. put in 2005 and it will give you the option of the 2010 or 2011 disc.

I figured out that the GMdisc site does not list the 2005 Escalade ESV. Only starts the ESV option in 2007 per the site so since that doesn't change the NAV system I went back and just looked for the results to 2005 Escalade and ordered the 20945770.
