    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    My wifes nav on her 2008 SRX has intermittent problems(already replaced the nav unit once before) if you miss a turn it cannot recalculate itself.I had it at the dealer today they wanted to bang me $200 to update it no guarantee that would solve the issue and no I did not let them do it without a proper diagnostic of the problem same old story could not duplicate the problem they only drove it 4 miles.Gov't motors (GM)ran just like the gov't too.lol

    Hello ukmat71,

    I do not have information regarding updates for vehicles outside of the United States. I recommend contacting General Motors of your region to discuss this. If you provide me with the country which you live, I can narrow down the point of contact for you and provide a phone number and possible website for you.

    Hi people,

    About navigation in Europe: i happen to have the last dvd produced pn :25980070, version 3.0c. From 2009.
    It cost me a fortune (> 280 euro)to get it via a caddilac dealer and came from the central warehouse in Sweden.
    There are no european updates anymore.

    Never worked though: it seems I need a firmware update..ok went to the dealer to have this fixed. It wont update since the system is malfunctioning.

    I would be happy to provide a copy to see if it works!

    Rds

    Will pm you later as cannot on phone If that's ok.
    That's the same version cadillac have told me is the latest, still its 3 years younger than the version I already have. Do they not realise its 2013 now. A lot can change in 4 years.

    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    Ciao Jeroen!

    I just purchased a 2005 SRX here in Italy. I'm trying to get up to speed on all the details, mods, accessories, tips/tricks, etc. I would love to update the navigation maps, but definitely can't afford 280 euro for 4-year old maps. Any chance I can get a copy of the disk to try?

    Grazie!
    Ben

    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    Congrats, you have just discovered the same thing that has annoyed the heck out of me with all 3 Cadillacs I have owned - GM's abandonment of European customers when it comes to map updates.

    280 Euro for 4 year old maps is a rip off. Unfortunately that may be the only way to get any sort of update unless you resort to piracy.

    To put this into perspective, I just bought a brand new Clarion NX302E head unit for 299 € and that includes the most recent maps. That gets me a full function unit including Bluetooth audio streaming and iPod/Phone integration.

    Add $150 for a Metra dash kit plus PAC audio interface and I have a nice factory looking Nav AND audio upgrade.

    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    Politby -

    In the States, I replaced my stock CD/radio in my F-150 for a very nice JVC navigation unit with integrated bluetooth along with a brake bypass to allow the navigation unit to be programmed while moving. It was a little pricey, but I really liked almost everything about it! I'd still like to find an SRX lock pick that would allow nav programming while on the fly. And dare I dream about bluetooth capability? I don't think I can afford to replace the unit in Europe, so I'd like to do whatever I can to make it more useable!

    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    US manufactures don't expect anyone to keep a car more then 5 years. That is why they abandon things like Map Updates.

    Audi is not much better - - I had an A6 Avante, that you could not get maps for after 6 years.

    Honda had abandon us with pre-2010 Goldwings, with no map updates after 2006, until last year - - and then the updates they sold from garmin, are 2 steps backward in firmware bugs, and the maps that came with the updates, were already 2 years old.

    Built in Nav is a total waste of money. They cost on average $1,500 to $2,000 for the unit.. and Maps are $200 each, always behind, and always buggy. You could buy a brand new Garmin with the latest maps for $150 every year.

    As for Cad - - I just installed the very latest Update last month. The maps in it are proximately a year and a half behind.... Gauged from some various new roads in my area missing in the map. There is no firmware difference from the update I installed in 2011 that can be noticed.

    The latest Update installed back in June, in my Garmin Nuvi, has all the roads up to about 6 months ago.

    Re: Nav Disc Updates

    Seems to me like a pretty short-term business decision. Perhaps on a high-end car like Cadillac they really just want to appeal to those who initially purchase the car. If most original owners sell their car a few years later, the problem is left to future owners who aren't really Cadillac customers, per se.

    Not sure why U.S. car companies don't partner with Garmin, etc. so that future map updates are readily available. I'm sure there's some other business decision that precludes this.
