My only problem is where I live the streets have no names, should be a song name, but I guess when no one lives here there is no reason to name the roads. ;)

I just updated my GPS and there are times the Bitch-In-The-Box has no idea where she is!

It is the worst GPS made. It needs more way to change it the way I want it.

The thing costs $2500 and when there are updates you have to pay $200! Really??

I just bought a brand new 2011 3 months ago and they already have a 2012 version and they want me to pay 200 also.... I thought years ago they gave you a few updates for free.... Thanks GM for making us bend over ever year.... I guess buying the car wasn't enough money spent...

The 12's no longer have disc's, I guess there will be another charge on something else to make up for it

My 2011 has the CF-compact flash, but it is still 200... I am pissed to buy a new car with an outdated map...

Last weekend was driving in the city and mine was off by 10 blocks and the gps no signal was on the dash . I also noticed at least 5 times a day the no singal is on is that normal and no tall building are around it sucks in the city alway off. I had aftermarket dash mounted that had better singal then this

Mine has done that too. I thought it may be my lockpick. My dealer says to buy a new nav disk because he says they wear out. :confused:

So I bought one off eBay and made a dual layer copy. When the copy fails I use the ISO file to burn another. I am told that leaving the disk in all the time also runs it all the time.

I just took advantage of the free upgrade this year( mines an 07). When I got it it had the first disc wich was 4 years old and it still worked by the way I had just installed my ipod interface yesterday wich is when I noteced the nav was not working. Im goin to try to look for my older copy of the nav disc and see if it works

I came here expecting the OP to have found a NAV unit laying on a street.

I leave disappointed.

I don't understand why a company has not come up with a replacement for these units!

One would think its just a matter of time until an aftermarket disc is available, but it still hasn't happened.

I think it would be great if Garmin would make a disc for the unit.
