    That's good to know. I have both East and West discs but the West disc seems to work here on the east coast as well. I'm guessing that both discs are nationwide but you'll get some of the finer details from the region specific discs.




    ----------

    Check this out. Right from the GMNAVDISC.COM Web site...............Dealers should not be charging for the upgrade:

    http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INT...llProducts=YES

    Attention Model Year 2005-07 Cadillac STS owners with vehicles built before December 2006: This map update is compatible with your navigation system. However, before this disc can be installed, your vehicle may require a software update. Please contact your local dealer to determine if this software update is required for your vehicle. If it is, your dealer will make arrangements to update your system's software at no cost to you.


    I started a new thread with this info because a lot of people might be interested in this.

    The only difference is the POI's. All the maps are on both disks. Deleteing obsolete POI's got them back down to a single dual-layer DVD.

    Lucky for him that i've got a link to a copy of them and happened to subscribe to this thread a couple years back when it was new.
    However, i'm not one to email out to a forum member, so here is the link... The discs have been confirmed to have worked for members on here. Tech 2 is required!!!!!
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/wl...pdate_discs.7z

    Additionally, his car profile says he has a DTS, these will only work on 2005-2007 STS cars that have not been updated already at the factory or when this was a new TSB.

    Re: Nav updata issues need some help or advice!

    I sent out 4 letters giving the TSO and all the technical info,to Cadillac dealers within
    probably a 50 mile radius, here in North Carolina, Hendrick is here, so he is no dummy.
    I got NO replies from any of them . I finally went to a city, I thought they would have the
    'technical knowledge, Hendrick of course , and they did it, for about I think $ 80.00
    I was glad to get it done, they were probably 18 miles from me. So Not all dealers have
    the techs working for them.Even one of them who NOT responded was Hendrick, but not
    in a city where I would expect the knowledge to do it. So you have to be aggressive to
    find one.
    Happy Motoring

    Luda, I just picked up a 2007 STS. It did not come with a nav disc. Will your uploaded link work for mine if it has been updated? And how can I tell if it's been updated if I do not have a nav disc?

    This will only update firmware. It doesn't contain map data. If you have magnetic ride control the updated radios have ride selection on the main config screen. That is the easy way to know. Otherwise you need to get into the diagnostic screens to check version info.

    Thanks Luda. This is the screen I get when I hit the config button below the DVD slot
