I need to get a hold of a a copy too. Yeah, I know it's illegal, blah, blah, blah... but after paying for the damn $50K+ car, I can't feel bad about wanting the NAV update disc gratis.
The newer versions update and add streets and POI's. The old versions is like having an old map book, some of the newer streets aren't shown yet.for the people who dont know already...what exactly does the update do for the nav? thanks in advance
The new versions of the map disk are copyright material. Much like burning a music CD.cool thanks...but what exactly makes it illegal? can you play dvd's while driving or something?
You have to call 1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472) and give your VIN and request an updated disk.If you have an 06 model, how do you acquire your updated disk? I've had my car for 13.5 months and I thought GM just mailed it to my home....but I haven't seen it yet.
I just went to the Nav web site to order my free Nav disc.You have to call 1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472) and give your VIN and request an updated disk.
You can also make the request online www.gmnavdisc.com
I'm not sure if it needs to be doe every year, or if you can make the request every other year etc. If you find out please let me know. I just got my 06 in August and haven't updated the disk yet. Mine came with version 2.0 :down:
I hear they no longer use version numbers, and only part numbers. Let us know how you make out.
I think they are suppose to send you a post card on your annual anniversary. I am guessing the control # is on that post card. I'm sure you will be all set if you just call the phone number I posted and give them your VIN.I just went to the Nav web site to order my free Nav disc.
They needed VIN # and Control #. What is Control # ?
Anybody know. I like 06LemansC6 have an 06 and havn't
updated my Disc yet also. I was planning on doing it
every couple years. It looks like on Nav web site once you
sign up you get one every year until you get your two free.
But I still don't know what Control # they talking about.
PM me your address.06LemansC6: I was wondering if there is a difference between the 05 nav and the 06 and up nav systems. We 05rs seem to have been left out of the updates. Will your copied disc work for the 05 and if so would you be so kind as to provide a copy. Cost (if any)?
I picked up my car 3/30/06. It's been well over a year nowI think they are suppose to send you a post card on your annual anniversary. I am guessing the control # is on that post card. I'm sure you will be all set if you just call the phone number I posted and give them your VIN.
Yes - at least version 3 works fine in my '05......As far as I know the disk should work just fine on the 05 models. All I know for sure is the copied disk works fine in my 06. Use it at your own risk.
The Bit Torrent I am downloaded and am using for this is titled version 3.0 I don't notice any changes from version 2.0, but I have to trust that the title is correct and it is in fact version 3.0
If I am forced to get the updates on my yearly purchase anniversary I will see if they can be copied.
