Hallo everybody. I've got problem with my navigation unit. There is on the screen information:
"CAUTION, cannot load System Software. Disk type incorrect. Please insert correct System disk".
No nav, no cd, no car menu. I've got original dvd PN 15924195, but it doesn't boot. Maybe you know where can I find the software disc? Thanks

you could try going to the dealer and getting the firmware update disc done to it. it provides some fixes and allows you to use the 2011 maybe? and 2012 Nav DVDs it also moved the MRC selection button to the main config screen and allows you to change it while driving.

Dealers in Russia don't have these disks, and to look for they them don't want. Disks are necessary here such (here their numbers are mentioned):

Perhaps, somebody can find these disks in USA , I would buy at once.

The system software (firmware) is gone. It needs to be reloaded. This has to be done by a dealer using a special procedure and a special firmware disc. They do not sell the disc to customers.

Besides the discs and the TSB you also will need a GM TECH2 tool. I have the TSB and the discs but I don't know how I could get it to you. If you can get to Big Diomede Island I could probably get somebody from Little Diomede to ride over on a snowmachine and hand it to you.

Joke? Chukotka and Alaska is almost nearby)))
If joking apart - can send me disks mail? As I already spoke, is ready to buy.
And I have Tech2...

What's in it for me? PM me your mailing address and I'll see what I can do for you.

I have a package made up of copied discs and the TSB. All I need at this point is where to send it.

The discs and the TSB have been mailed to you. They said it'll probably take a couple of weeks to get there. When you get them I'd like you to send me a picture of you and your car so I'll know who I've been dealing with.
