Has anyone anteed up for one of the newer single-DVD Navigation disc's available for more than a year?
Are the maps much more current? POI's, etc?
The Nav firmware upgrade to 2007 models & earlier IS worthwile on its own, IMO.

I have the latest nav disc and it seems just as useless as when I had an older disc in my 2007 sts. Although I've yet to ask the dealer about a firmware update for my nav. I really hope the firmware thing helps. You said 2007 and earlier. Does that mean there's no such update for my car? Thanks.
AFAIK, the firmware upgrade only applies to old (pre-2008) Nav's.

Gotcha. Well when I'm in ny the nav doesn't do too bad with recognizing addresses. But here in NC it's pretty bad. And I have the latest disc. I can't wait to move back to NY.

I wonder how much the local stealership would rook me for a firmware update...
Chris, er, Rippy...how much should it be, about?
It takes about 45 minutes. There's a link to the procedure in the 'Sticky' thread at the top of the forum. If they have the disk, one hour labor isn't far out of line. I think it does take a Tech II. It does improve Bluetooth, VR a bit and if you have MRC it's nice to have it on the first Config screen.
Guy - Around here, they're still in love with rural addresses. In-town homes & businesses have street addresses like W65N2210 Washington Ave. I've taken to entering the destination by phone number! It's quicker!

I tried it once and it didn't work. Ill try it more often.
