    Re: STS Navigation Disk

    Hey Fellas! Im new to the Forum! Greetings
    I have a 2006 STS and at one time had the NAV disk but for some reason I went to use it the other day and have not used it for a while and realized either someone stole it or has been misplaced. Looked everywhere for it. I live in IL. Does anyone happen to have a extra they would like to part with or where I could get one without breaking the bank? Thanks!

    Re: STS Navigation Disk

    One good reason for making a back-up disc.

    Keep that in mind when you do get another.

    You can try ebay for discs in the $100-$150 range.

    You can do a google search for whichever GM disc p/n you want and see what else is out there.

    All I have is a spare Version 1.0 disc. I don't recommend it.

    Meh I could easily copy my 2010 Disc but each would require 2 DVD-DL discs (one for east one for west) and Dual Layer DVDs arent cheap.

    DL DVDs are cheap. GOOD QUALITY ones are a LITTLE expensive.

    I use Verbatim DVD-R DL discs. They are $40 for 25 of them at Best Buy. I found them on sale for half off and bought two packs.

    You can find them online cheaper.

    When coping the STS NAV disc you really need quality discs and not cheap ones.


    You are talking about backing up a $200 NAV disc. So even if the discs were $50 a piece it wouldnt be expensive.

    If I sent you the disc's could you copy them for me? I will send you 4 or 5 if you want so you have some extras?

    That would be blatently illegal.

    Making a back-up of a nav disc you already own is pretty darn easy though.

    Dual-layer Verbatim DVDs are easily had for < $2 ea.

    $4 for a backup is very worth it IMO.

    Admittedly, Garmin/TomTom/ etc all have pretty crazy update costs, but GM has taken it to another level.

    They seem to follow the Ink-jet printer philosophy: cheap printer, ridicuous replacement ink cost.

    But with GM, they also charged crazy high for the DVD-NAV at the start!

    IMO, $50 would be a more than fair cost for an update. Yet ebay $150 is about the market rate.

    Thank you Slee_Stack.

    Selling or exchanging pirated software is a crime. Discussion of any and all criminal activity is prohibited on the forums:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NET_Act

    The NET Act makes it illegal to reproduce or distribute copyrighted works, such as software programs and musical recordings, even if the defendant acts without a commercial purpose or for private financial gain.

    "The term 'financial gain' includes receipt, or expectation of receipt, of anything of value, including the receipt of other copyrighted works.'.




    I will gladly forward your IP addresses to the US Dept of Justice if you openly discuss pirating software here. Please keep that in mind.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    Just a friendly reminder that I have, and will continue to forward IP addresses to the Dept of Justice internet crime division if people openly discuss exchanging or selling copied software. I love you guys and all, but the owners of this site don't want discussion of illegal activities here.

    Re: STS Navigation Disk

    old story here, but a long while ago I got an upgrade to the disc that came with my car, I've seriously never used the navigation, so I sent the prior disc off to a board member, and popped the new disc in and didn't really look it over....well, fast forward two summers, I was in Delaware last weekend, actually wanted to use the nav system.....guess what i have...west coast edition! So, does anyone have a spare east coast or nationwide edition that would work in my 06 sts for not a ton of money? maybe an older would be fine as since 08 this is the only time I ever really could've used it....kath (rnkathny08@aol.com)

    also if anyone needs a west coast edition let me know, perhaps we could swap? I'm not interested in any bootleg stuff, just the actual disc and I would happily trade if it would work for someone else.

    I have a 2007 east coast disc, might be interested in a swap.
