I am trying to do the NAV up grade that was done similar to this thread,


Here is a quote from that thread regarding what I need to have done;

"I have an appointment on Thursday morning to get the base head unit de theft locked at a local dealer. I have hooked it up and the display shows fine so far its just theft locked so I am un able to test the features of the DIC yet. I was able to go into sport mode and turn my traction and stab completely off as well so I am confident that wont be an issue although there wont be a visual notation of that as of right now any longer."

I have called several dealers and they all have no idea what I am talking about. Am I just having bad luck with the people I am talking to or am I just not asking the question correctly? Has anyone in the Houston area done this and can direct me to where I can get this done?

My dealer had no problem and did it for free. Take it in and get the right person on the case rather than the lackey on the phone.

I hate to just show up and hope that can do it or are willing to do it. I'd hope I can get some confirmation first. I've called three out of the four dealers in the Houston area and the fourth is not close at all.

I did go down to my install guy. I think he knows someone that works at the dealership that can helps. It really does amaze me how much stone walling you get at these places.
