    Yes
    You MUST have the bluetooth software update in order for it to work, confirm the newer software by having suspension controls located right on the main config screen right under driver 1 and driver 2 selection

    2012 Disc works fine on my 05 1SG and fathers 07 1SG both have update

    2012 disc contains map data version 8.0 so it sounds like yours is a 2009 disc.

    Dealers aren't a good source.

    Hello. Would you mind sending me the 2010 NAVDISC set as I recently purchased a 2008 STS off a used car lot and they had no disc for it. Thanks.

    Also, not sure where to get the firmware update, if I infact need it or how to do it. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Firmware updates are a dealer-only activity. The disc is only made available to dealers.

    Re: 2012 Navigation Disc

    This forum honors copyright laws. Any dealer can upgrade your Nav firmware. I think it's about a 1 hour job.

    ----------

    I had my Nav firmware upgraded in January 2009. Here's the level now:

    Navi: 0FC15
    Soft Rel: 6-03/29(6088)
    Audio: 01.0C

    Here's the procedure:

    1. From the Navigation screen, press Menu.
    2. On the Nav. Menu that shows big Change Route & Memory Points soft keys, press & hold a 'hidden soft key' located above the Memory Points soft key but below the top line of the display. After 5 seconds or so, a keypad appears with a prompt to Enter Diag PIN...
    3. Enter 9448 and press 'OK'.
    4. A menu is displayed. Some options are really cool. Bill Sadler recommends being especially careful with 'Ship Mode' and 'Touch Screen' because you could corrupt something that requires a trained tech to fix.
    5. Software Info leads to the information shown above.

    6. NO - THERE IS NO PLACE TO UNLOCK THE 'INMOTION' LIMITATIONS OF THE SYSTEM. But it is way cool!


    Here's a link to the procedure to check your firmware with pictures:

    Re: 2012 Navigation Disc

    Hey hey now, no need to ban, my apologies. what should be a law is what a rip off the nav discs are, and the navigation system in the caddy. They are a complete joke. Gm should get together with Pioneer, or atleast make the UI a little bit more user friendly, who came up with those icons? About those discs anyway. what I really meant was it is perfectly legal to make your own back up of anything you want. You bought it you have the right to back it up. We back up all of our Wii and Xbox games. MY buddy had 3 of the same games as me and his little boy thought it would be fun to warm them up in the microwave. So he was able to obtain a back up from someone he knew. I can see what a big deal it can be though, by the way S.O.P.A. and P.I.P.A. did not pass in case you were wondering. Way too many people protested, those bills gave the government wayyy to much authority over the entire planet. What the heck were they thinking, that they were going to pass? Once again, my bad and I will watch what and how I say touchy subjects.

    Now see there, the guy selling them on CL is breaking the law by selling them. If I back up a copy of my 2012 version and decide to post a link to it for all my good friends, I see no harm in that. It is differant over at avic411 I guess. But alot of us chipped in to buy the new disc, or in Pioneers case SDcards. So really it was all of ours.
