Hi all, just introducing myself to the club. Recently bought 2003 S type V6 3.0L SE plus satnav etc. 65k miles and FJSH. Very happy although having to replace DCCV presently. Would be even happier if I could use my phone through it and could update sat nav. Regards

Welcome to the club, Dennis.

 

You will be able to get an update disc just by looking around on google.

 

I got  a 2013 disc for £30 from a company called SatNavupdates, and it works well.  It took me through the middle of Dublin on Friday night, and across to Galway on the next day   ----  and Ireland does not have Postcodes!!

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Thanks Peter and Ron for your welcome. I bought a 2013 update disc from satnavdvd.co.uk for £20 but when loading the screen just comes up with "communication error" after a few moments. Put the original disc back in and nav screen recovered but CC screen came up with communication error. Then switched engine off and re-started and thankfully all back to normal again. I may pluck up the courage to try new disc again but am fearful of losing everything.

Any ideas? Regards, Den.

Thanks Ron, I am laid up with a very bad back at the moment after working on the Jag yesterday. I can barely move and was planning for today to re-try the dvd I bought before any further action. I will bear in mind your offer but won't know if I need it for a few days yet. However, please don't let that delay your plans to advertise it.

Best regards

Dennis

Hi Ron,

I tried that new disc again and this time its seems to have worked. I say seems to because the loading took about 2 seconds! A message came up and was superseded by another so quickly I couldn't read it but it had the words "DVD" and "map" in it. The second message said it was loading and that lasted about 1 second and then the screen returned to normal showing me my location. I did check via the sat nav menu option 'DVD version' and it came back and said 2011. So I guess its done??

Regards Dennis

Den, the sat nav reads data from the DVD into RAM, where it remains until power is removed, even if you change the disk, so after and disk change, you'll have to re-cycle the ignition to allow the sat nav to read the new disk.

 

From personal experience I'd say you won't lose anything by trying different disks :lol:
