Hey , I just got my 04 CTS v love the car so far. I came from a wrx to a f250 Harley Davidson to a 04 CTS v . My question is the car I got doesn't have the nav disc but my mom has a 08 hummer with the Bose nav would her disc work in my car or not she hasn't even unwrapped the disc yet hah.

if you go to http://gmnavdisc.com it should tell you what other cars your disc fits

my dealer login/view of the site gives us that ability at least (i think it will for you too)

So it won't work does anyone have a disc I can buy? Do you have to keep the disc in at all times or is it a once and done thing? Thanks Rippy

Disc has to be in at all times. But there is the seperate slot at the top for the Nav disc. You can still have your 6 music CD's down on the bottom one. Be careful if you are going to be buying a used one from someone. I have found these discs are VERY touchy. Very minute scratches can make it not function completely. Also, if your V has the DVD logo, test the player with a dvd movie and make sure the lens isnt scratched.

I have an '06 V and i have the CD. it is barely scratched and it doesn't work. It loads up, but freezes before any kind of Navigation'ing.

Atleast this is what I have learned from experience, still pretty new to V's...

The nav system in these cars is awful. Don't waste your time. I would rather use a sextant.

My daughter used to touch the screen thinking it was a touch screen. I said no honey, this car is OLD it has buttons lol.
