Hi Walter,

You could try borrowing a disc that you know works and see what it says.

Good luck.

Peter.

Hi Walter,

There are lots of sites that will provide a new disc for about £25.  Just google jaguar  x type Sat nav update.  Amazon and Ebay will give you the info - I got a 2012/13 update from a site called  "Sat Nav Updates" for my 07 S Type to replace the 2005 disc that was  there.

It works fine

Regards,

Peter.

I've just bought a 2015-2016 disc from ebay to update the 2007 disc in my car. When I changed it, it said an update was required which would take 20 minutes - and had the option to continue. As I was late, I switched the car off thinking I'd do it later.

Starting the car later - the satnav button on the home screen just beeps - no satnav, and no message. I put the 2007 disc back in - same thing. It obviously wants this update, but I've got no idea how to re-boot it !  Can anyone help ?

I am sure I read a post somewhere on here where a member explains how to re-boot the system

hi

usually when this happens you nav dvd unit is on its way out

you could try a cd cleaning disc in it, might fix it

as the laser gets older it struggles reading the dvd, copied discs are the first to  fail, usually the read genuine ones till the end

only real fix is to fit another nav dvd unit

cheers

Hi joe-dot-com Thank you for your reply I'll try and clean it if that doesn't work I'll have to try and get hold of another one the man I bought it from assured me it was working fine when I bought the car .

Kind regards 

Eddie.

original discs work better

its because the nav unit is struggling to read the disc,

using a cd cleaning disc sometimes can cure it

Hi Patrick, and welcome to the club.

At a guess, I would say that the disc is the issue.  It could need either cleaning or replacing - plenty of discs can be found via google.

Regards,

Peter.
